Hey everybody! I'm back from my blog sabbatical. I'm working away on a stationary set for Chronicle books right now. It will have stickers! I haven't done much other drawing, but I did these to warm up a few days ago, and although they are friggin' weird drawings, I thought I should update with SOMETHING before you all forget my blog exists, so here they are.
Whilst foraging for mid-century fashion magazine scans, I ran across some photos from the 20's and 30's, which is one of my most favorite eras for fashion. Ladies were petite and robed in satin, and covered with flowers, and encouraged to be dainty (not that any of those qualities is present in these drawings, I'm just sayin').
I like how this one turned out.
Flickr is my favorite thing to search for images on. It is about 100x better than google, because people just scan images from books and such, and you get a lot of obscure stuff. These weirdo-weird drawings are me biting off some obscure French illustrator whose name I immediately forgot. The flower-crotch is all me, though.
I'm doing a guest lecture in Ethan Metzger's class at CalArts next week. If there are any current CalArts kids out there that want me to talk about something specific, now's the time to ask! I'm going to explain my process for doing digital paintings. I'm going to share all my secrets with you. I'm bringing my dog.
