The Underground Railroad: Eros

An image on human trafficking—the emphasis on the external.
Yet another preview for the Senior Show. Hope the nudity gets approved. From my point of view, emphasizing the sensual over the sexual should be permitted.

Senior Show Preview

Three weeks left until the deadline I made for my Senior Show. I had to make some sacrifices, but I should be able to show seven new images. I haven't produced work this quickly before, so we'll see if this makes me better or makes me cry for death. 

Or both.

Here's a preview of a sculpture I'll be creating in wax, ultimately ending in a bronzing. I may incorporate ammonia to give it a cool, blue marbling. We'll see.

He'll be holding a hammer, not a cardboard tube.

Make Believe

Another image that will be finished and added to my Senior Show

When I was little I used to pretend I was a monster. This memory came back to me in the middle of this sketch. When I pursued the monster from a long time ago I was surprised to find that the monster himself had gotten older. His design changed (just like mine) and his visual aesthetic had different needs now than it did when I was younger. 

I'm reminded with this image that art (for me) is not a one-way project—it is an exchange. There are things I've forgotten that haven't forgotten me, and I learn about these things (and inevitably myself) the more time I spend in an artistic state of mind.

New sketch up. If all goes according to plan, I'll make this into a stereographic image and feature it in my senior show!

Also, an image from a Photoshop demo I covered. The purpose was to teach painting basics, so I used a mouse.

And, finally, I submitted an image to Udon's Megaman Tribute art book. That'll have to stay under wraps until the book is actually released, but I'll let you know if I made it regardless. Have a good one, and don't forget to sketch daily!
