Slinging ink tonight
Something I did for last month’s Magnet Magazine. It can be a little tricky to illustrate a somber subject like this, especially when it was coming from the writer’s own personal experience. I decided keeping the figure essentially nondescript was a good way to approach the problem.
Another year at Wizard World Philly. I’ll be there Friday through Sunday selling prints and drawings. I’m at table F29 in the Artist Alley section of the show. Stop on by!
Something new for Magnet Magazine last month, on the topic of creative energy and passion. Do the best artists - musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, etc. peak in their twenties?
I don’t personally subscribe to that idea (If I did, I might as well jump off a cliff right now), but Phil Sheridan makes a pretty good case for this kind of pattern throughout the arts.
Thought I would show three stages of the process, from my very quick thumbnail sketch, to the finished art.
Thanks for looking!
Last month I drew up some pop stars for Magnet Magazine, where they got made fun of by writer Phil Sheridan, hehe.
I had a lot of fun using a custom Photoshop brush made by illustrator Kyle T Webster. This is really the most natural water color brush for PS that I have come across. Greatly enjoyed the looseness and spontaneity of it.
I recommend everyone who is interested to check out his site, where he offers a variety of custom brushes that he has crafted. This particular “Wet and Wild Watercolor" brush is offered with a "pay what you wish" option. Pay the man!
