Crog Habitat watercolor process

Yay! So I finally finished my final. Crogs in their natural habitat some place in Asia (hopping around through rice fields). It took a while but in the end I was pretty happy. Now I can zzzz tonight. This is the kind of stuff I usually do (watercolor work).

Hybrid Animal Scottish Fold + Bullfrog = Crog.

New assignment! I’m going to put this little guy in an environment with children. These things seem friendly enough. I will have the finished assignment up in a few days! These are just sketches. I’m really excited to work on the new crog species. They’re kind of cute :)

Poppy acrylic painting process

April 25th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

So for the entire month of April at my part time job, I decided to teach flower lessons. They’re going pretty good so far, and I think my students have great dedication. Flowers aren’t the easiest things to paint but I found ways to make it simple. Here, I started to do a rough drawing of what the poppies would look like in space. Then I painted the background first with different kinds of greens, yellows, and blues. The flowers were done by layering different colors on top of each other until there’s a distinct value range. Colors are great but values are more important I think. Anyway, this was a quick study before class which I had a lot of fun doing.

Honey Bee screen printing process

April 19th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Hey guys, so here is a screen print that I knocked out a few days ago. The method for this print is called, “reduction” printing. This is when I paint emulsion paste directly on my screen until the desired image gets completely covered with emulsion. Meaning, I cannot go back and make another edition these prints. These will be on sale Saturday at the CCA Oakland campus!

Hibiscus acrylic painting process

Here is my process of how to break down a painting in less than two hours. I start with a loose pen & ink sketch then with acrylics, block in obvious shapes to get my values in. I repeat the process until finished. This particular painting was done for the fine arts class I teach on Fridays.

Hooray! I finally have a real website!

This blog will show you my process from start to finish for illustrations. I will also rant and share random art/artists that inspire me to create new work.

Keep an eye out for new stuff! Thanks for dropping by!
