White American Bulldog

I’m working on another commission of my friend’s dog and her daughter. Here I did some quick sketches of her dog which I spent roughly 2-5 minutes each just to get a feel of how this dog moves and how it’ll look in the final piece! I like sketching, super fun!

So I was given the advice to do more experimentation with the traditional ways of working. I found a lot of fun manipulating my work through a kaleidoscope tool. Here are some interesting images I made with old and recent art.

First of all, happy new year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I’ve been missing for some time now only because I was finishing up my last semester at California College of the Arts working on my thesis project. Now that I am officially done I get to start all over again and make new work.

A week before Xmas a friend of mine called me up for some commissioned work for a Xmas gift to his girlfriend. I couldn’t pass up a fun and rad project so I agreed to do it. (The scale of this thing is outside my comfort zone so it was kind of nice to work huge for the first time in a long time! The final product is 24″x30.”

I am sharing my process just so you can get an idea of how I work.

Here is a collage of the final sketch. I started drawing one thing on a piece of paper but it didn't work out. So, I took some scissors cut out a few things and arranged the objects until I was satisfied.

I started to paint one subject, detailing it to completion and moved on to another subject

Some detailing up close. I lay down a warm wash before adding other colors in, just to unify everything together.

TAH DAH! Complete.

Where am I?
