For now anyway. I've been working on a bunch of stuff and currently have 9 pieces in the works, I just hope I can have them done by the time the semester is over. For now I'm just going to show you a pic of my workspace and a piece I'm working on for a call for artists. Let me know what you think about it, it should look super cool when it's done :) I'll have more pictures soon.
Here's the flyer for my show @ fabric8. Had a terrific time last night and met some amazing people. Thanks to everyone who came out and a big thanks to Olivia and Anthony for having me at their gallery, I really hope to show there again :)
For those of you who couldn't make it the show will be up until Nov. 7th, stop by and let me know what you think.
Here' a sculpture I'm working on for my instructor, John Dobson. He has us working on a project focusing and Jungian/freudian archetypes. I don't want to go into it too much now, however as the sculpture nears completion I'll provide lil tidbits of info here and there. Enjoy :)
This is after the piece is stained with toxic chemicals and starts looking good. Very satisfied with the mask at this point.
and this it it after the final firing with the other two guys
All that is left is some touch up...possibly even grinding off some of the glaze in order to reglaze. The final firing gave me an undesirable effect with the mask, a not so happy accident. I hope to have the final completed versions of the marionettes up tomorrow evening or saturday.
This is a quick 32" gesture sculpture that took about an hour to sculpt. The focus was to capture the gesture of the model using some basic shapes and to not get caught up in musculature. We were required to work fast and loose which I haven't done with figures before, needless to say it was a fun way to start the class. It's not the best work I've done but I'm hoping the progress I make will inspire me to keep working hard. I'm posting these pics so we can watch my progress as a figurative sculptor.
I've only sculpted people one other semester 4 years ago in a figure modeling and it feels great to be thinking in this way again. I'm excited to see my progress and hope there is something here to be learned from it. Oh yeah here's also a picture of the armature we use, if you're interested I can give you instructions on how to build it.
This is a photo of a puppet in the works. It's a collaboration I'm working on with my friend Meghann. This will most likely be the last project I work on until school is out. Hopefully I'll have some Photo's of my projects to post in the coming 15 weeks, however school might contribute to the lack of updating so my posts might be sparse for the rest of the semester. Anyway, let me know if you have any suggestions or any other kind of helpful feedback. Enjoy :)
This Guy is currently for sale, however he wont be available to take home or to ship until after the show. Let me know if you're interested. I hope to have some better pictures taken later on this week. I hope you all like it, Enjoy :)
Here are some links to previous post about the marionette and my plans for it.
Here are some photos of my Superhero Marionette. I've finished glaze firings and assembly. All that's left is to string it up to the controllers..it feel like I've been working on it forever since I haven't had regular access to any kind of ceramic facilities.. As always, i'd love to hear what you have to say, Enjoy.
Here's a link to something I started earlier this morning. This is my first time working with flash and it's been a lot of fun. I notice that the screen capture doesn't capture the animation as smooth as flash, hopefully I can have a better one up once the animation is completed. Let me know what you think and if you have any handy dandy tips or tricks, or working in Flash. Enjoy :)
Here are some images I'm working on in photoshop. I still have a way to go before they're finished, but I thought I'd show you all what I've been up to. Feel free to comment on my progress or suggest anything. I'd eventually like to add color to these pieces after the values are locked, so if you have any suggestions on how to do that it would be greatly appreciated....especially since I'm not too sure how to go about it. Enjoy :)
I'm not too sure what I'm doing, but I like the way it's looking so far. I'm not too sure where to take this image or what else I could do to make it better. I'd love to hear all off your feedback regarding style, color, line work etc., especially since this is a new media.
I did some more mixed media work using, water color, ink, and deco marker. I had an idea of what I wanted to do but wasn't really sure how to go about it. I wanted these images to compliment one another but when I was working on the blue image I ran out of blue and resorted to using green. I was also thinking I could have created warm shadows in the cool drawing and vice versa. This is new territory for me and I'd love to hear what you think is and isn't working. Enjoy :)
