Question 62

This summer I was granted an advanced hothouse illustration class. The first assignment is an illustration for T.C. Boyle's short story entitled "Question 62 ". The first image is my former solution.

After the critique I made another more focused and refined version (the latter), also getting rid of some excess secondary elements.

Sean Mellyn, whom I’m being a studio assistant for, is going to have a reception this Wednesday. Its a really great feeling to see the works of art that I’ve had some input in (even if just a little), go in a show and sell to some very prestigious collectors.

As for my own stuff: at this time I’m playing around a lot with various mediums and approaches. Here is a drawing from life with a ball point pen, over an improvised watercolor layer.

This was a quick watercolor sketch I did on location in Delphi, and later on went over it with blue ink, and a bit of color pencils.

Playing with some color pencils and pen on toned paper in a form of automatism.

summer so far

Its been a while since I updated the blog, I suck. Anyway the summer is going great. Two of the paintings that were in the Thesis show are now also in a group show "SOCIAL": An exhibition of photography, painting and sculpture that examines current global conditions and cultural legacies. (I’ll upload the images of the paintings when I take decent photos)

During my awesome trip to Europe I haven’t really made much art (enjoying the social life a bit too much). The one thing I did do is much like a diary of quick recordings of places, people and things made in very short time intervals that I had.
