DINO-SAWRS

Nic and I went to the Natural History Museum in LA yesterday! It was unplanned and wonderful. These are the only two drawings I did while I was there, unfortunately. Since it was my first time, I just sort of ran around ogling and crying over how awesome everything was. I seriously teared up when I entered into the first dino-room with that Mamenchisaurus--- GIGANTIC and breathtaking.

I just kept thinking-- I'm in front of Dinosaurs!!!

So many that I didn't know, too! I was totally dissapointed, when I was 5 I knew 'em all!

Huesera Gallery Updates

So about two weeks back I put up the show I've mentioned before! I have some documentation of the event, so I'll share it for you here.   Don't mind the Bone Mobile video...I idiotically turned it sideways forgetting the video wouldn't right itself. Ha!





 But First, More Process for Huesera's Death Mask casting

 My whole set up: Bone Mobile and Burial Mound, Animation Loop, and Shadowbox Deathmask.
The Bone Mobile.


 Death Mask Shadow Box: cast in wax, broken apart, then reassembled.

And here are two videos to share with the good folks at home.

La Huesera- Death Mask

 Natural Terra Cotta clay. Total time 3ish hours. 10.5x6.5x3.5 (roughly) life size piece.

Preparing for my part in the upcoming MFA Thesis Exhibition. I've got a 3 part exhibit I'm planning, with the death-masks being one part.  Taking my character and bringing her to "reality". Not going for hyper-realism here, but a feeling/ translation of the feel of my character if she would be "alive" in the real realm.

Here's a sneak peek at something else planned for the exhibit too:

Character Design of myself


So, I'm going to try sitting in on a Character Design class with Andy Suriano . This is a hack at myself, which is the first assignment. I tried to go in a different direction than how I usually character myself for my webcomic. We'll see.

Foxes, Gouache and Polish Patternmaking.

So recently I've been thinking about patterns a lot. I mean A LOT. William Morris, Klimt, Polish Paper-cutting etc etc. I also decided I wanted to try my hand at some more things I've never done before. I like these foxes I've been making, share a couple with you here. I still have a bit to learn when it comes to gouache I think, but it was a fun start. My first two attempts went smoothly, but then a third ended in mush. I always do underdrawings as well, and I find that the gouache isn't quite thick enough to cover over the pencil line (at least as I'm using it) But hell, those colors are vibrant and  beautiful. I'm going to keep playing around with it... UNTIL I HAVE A ROOM FULL OF FOXES. Haha. yes.

Studies at the Getty Museum

So this past weekend I got to take a trip to the Getty. Love that place. A few overly studies done of some sculptures and paintings there. I got obsessive about the emotion portrayed in faces.  All original artists are mentioned, and you can find pictures of them here at  The Getty Center's Collection Site. Simply type in the name of the art! Pretty awesome for looking up specific artists as well.

 Henry Weekes 1859- Bust of an African Woman
 Jean-Baptiste Stouf Bust of Belisarius 1785-91
study of Moses

Messing around with programs

Hurrahhhh for new things.

Also please feel free to check out my home-boy Darrell T. Watson's and Tiffany Ford's short experiment "RAD and the Sword of Dreams". I got to do some animation for this thing, because let's face it those two are a power-house of design and story.  Check out their blogs, yo!
