Well, it’s been far to long since the last update. I’ve been busy working, trying to get ideas for the website in order, and studying. Speaking of studies, here’s a few, done at both the Atelier and in-studio at home. The figure painting is from photo reference, the portrait from life, and the pinup portrait is a quick study after Elvgren (to get me warmed up for an in-depth Elvgren study I have planned.) While I’m talking about illustration studies, I want to go ahead and point everyone in the direction of TheIllustrationBoard.com, a fledgling online community dedicated to illustrators, visual storytellers, and representational art. Swing by, register, and take a look at what the forum has to offer….Everything from critiques by working professionals, to contests, to tutorials. Make sure to take a look at the events section on the boards as well, as I’ll be leading weekly sketch trips to the zoo on behalf of the forum. You can look forward to some fun lectures and drawing demonstrations on specific animals with each trip, and get to know the illustration community here in southern California.
Hope to see you on the boards, and at the zoo.
