I made a video

It’s easy to feel so very irrelevant given that the white people of the USA just elected the literal worst person available to lead us into oblivion and shit is getting worse everyday for just about everyone ever, unless you’re an uber-rich oligarch or an heir thereof; nonetheless, I did manage to put together a short speed art video this week so here it is.

 

Hopefully you enjoy and I’ll come up with something more pithy and insightful to say about things next time.

I still have a 15% off thing going on my etsy (coupon code EARLYYULE2016).   Self promotion hasn’t been something I’ve been much into oh, for the entirety of my life, but even less so lately given that we live in a caldera full of putrid racist shit and bile. Anyways.

 

Love y’all and hope you’re holding it down out there. See you soon.

Finished Another Painting.

Second one in a month. I am BLAZING I tell ya what.

 

Here’s a google-collage thing I made that shows the painting’s process:

I started with a sketch, as usual.  This sketch was on watercolor paper.  I tend to do a fairly in depth pencil sketch and then just incorporate the lead into everything else.  I usually work with colored pencil as an “underpainting”-ish thing and then go with a bunch of layers of thin coats of paint to build up the face and all the areas where I have painted acrylic.  The red, tho, is one of those water-soluble markers that I used to color the entire background, then went over it with varnish.  It’s very vibrant.   Lots of glitter and all that.

 

Here’s a .gif of the process, tho it’s not v detailed:

Here’s a nifty hi-res scan of the finished thing:

I’m trying to find a catchy name for this piece.  I believe it carries on the theme of androidness.

Hey did y’all know you can follow me here and also I’m on youtube?  I’m feeling squirrely lately, I reckon.

P.S. if you want to have this you can, for a price. Check it out. 

OR if you’d prefer, you can have a snazzy glossy print reproduction of it. Over here.

Happy Tuesday and all that.

Processing…

Today I’m being p chill and just working on a new piece,  a kinda companion to the piece I did in my YouTube video.  I’m enjoying working with that particular color palette.  

I haven’t made my announcement yet because the world keeps blowing up and it doesn’t seem appropriate. But if you look around this blog and my other new tarot blog over here you’ll figure it out.  I’m holding off with the confetti and newsfeed spammage for now outta respect for the dead.  The world’s on fire.   

But the art must go on,  and so it does.  
Talk to y’all again soon.
