Currently selling!

 

hello! Lately, I’ve been super busy with my current project, illustrating a book series. However, I thought it’d be pretty cool to sell my artwork on the side.

I’ll be selling two pieces:

The Buddha Portrait

Color/ Technique Practice

An artist always needs some time to fiddle around with new colors and techniques. I bought myself a new set of ShinHan poster colors, set B, which has a wide range of different colors, including pastels and brights. Since this portrait ties in with the books I’m illustrating, I thought it’d be relevant to use it as a basis of practice.

 

 

05 Pier

Our biggest project of the quarter, the pier project.

Near Cal Poly SLO is the Port San Luis Pier, shown below:

Our entire architecture morning studio was divided into 25 groups, each group assigned a different section of the pier. Our project’s motive was  to measure, record, sketch the pier, and  to recreate an exact replica to a scale of 1/4″. From there, we’d recreate our own design of the pier, according to its location and functionality.

The weekend we visited the pier with our groups, I took a lot of pictures (like a good architect) and created sketches/water colors.

After observation, designing, my group and I, based off my design, created our new section of the pier.

03 Interpolated Void

 

Before the weekend, my professor asked my class to take a trip downtown and take pictures of different structures, whether it be buildings, a stop light, windows, tables, or even a park bench. We would have to edit them into black and white, creating a great contrast. From these photos, we’d choose two and place them on a bristol board, four inches apart.

Then we’d selectively removing pieces of the images, adding lines, and using a deliberate process of operations, create a new composition based on the two sources. Our intention will be defined through the analysis of each photograph, with your interpolation existing in the void between them.

After taking numerous photos, my teacher asked us to draw diagrams, boiled down to the simplest forms (as shown below).

From these forms and shapes we drew, we would take ideas and incorporate them into our void.
