I did a piece of propaganda in the style of Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope poster. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did putting it together!

Revival

November 5, 2012

I know its been a while but I’m back! Be on the look out for a bunch of new pictures and a new lay out soon!

Exhibition shots

June 8, 2012

Hey everyone, here’s some shots of my print that was shown at the 5th Annual Art Students’ Juried Exhibition recently. I forgot to post these up after the opening but here they are! The first shot is of a section of the wall mine was put on. If you look down to the left you’ll see Khalil Riddick’s skeletal hand study, he’s another good friend of mine that’s an amazing artist. Definetly go check out his page after you’re done reading this at http://khalilriddickart.wordpress.com/. The next photo is just a close up of my piece on the wall. The turnout was amazing and it turned out to be a very fun evening. Also, I forgot to upload this kinda funny thing that happened to me in my Oceanography lab this past semester. Instructions were to examine a bunch of different slides under a microscope and draw what you saw. So ofcourse everyone in the class starts QQ’in about “oh I can’t draw!” “this is so hard :'((((((” and I just kinda chuckle to myself ok this will be kinda fun, beats doing formulas or converting measurements. So I have fun and take my time but by the end there was an empty circle to draw in because our teacher told us to skip that one. Naturally I couldn’t let this ONE blank circle go to waste so I drew in a Metroid from the game. He didn’t give me any extra credit but at least he appreciated it haha.

Exciting news!

June 1, 2012

Ok, so I know I’ve disappeared for a while but I’ve been staying busy. I just finalized and secured my spot in artist alley at this year’s G-Fest. For those of you who aren’t familiar with G-Fest, its a convention all about Godzilla!! Awesome right? I can’t believe I didn’t know about it haha! Well anyhow, this means I’m going to be taking a break from the Nordic theme and shift gears back to Kaiju! So in preparation for the con I’ll be printing new editions of The Aurora Storm and Godzilla vs. Gezora as well as finishing older pieces and creating new pieces all together! So keep an eye out for those and if you want to know more about G-Fest and its amazingness check out their site at http://www.g-fan.com/html/gfest_xix/gfest_xix.php until next time, ODIN HAS YOU ALL…..STILL!

Diablo 3

May 21, 2012

Apologies to everyone waiting for me to update my page. I’m just way too absorbed in Diablo 3 right now. Lots of new stuff coming soon though. Oh yeah, and I graduated hahah! yay!

Frames and a sketch

April 16, 2012

Yet again I apologize for the delayed post, I’m probably going to change my name to John “slackinonthisblog” Moses haha. Well I’ve had a lot of school work keeping me from posting, gotta love the end of a semester, right? Once all this is over though I will have a lot more time to post work and keep updating everyone. Here I have framed my Transitions series and my two Godzilla screenprints. I entered them into my school’s 6th annual juried art exhibition and luckily got in! So I’m proud to announce that I will be showing The Aurora Storm in the exhibition along with a great number of fellow amazing artists and some of my friends! If you are local to the area be sure to drop by and check it out, the opening will be this Saturday, April 21st, at the Gordon Gallery on Monarch Way. The opening recession is from 7pm to 9pm. Other then that I was determined to better my abilities in drawing faces or portraits so I started on of Ian McKellen as Gandalf. I’ve managed to impress myself with this one though haha, I always avoid drawing faces. Hope you all enjoy!

The Transitions

April 5, 2012

Whatssssss uppppppp. Alright, so you’re probably thinking, “dang son, this is way past the weekend” and you’re totally right. BUT I may or may not have forgot about some papers I had to write…. ok yeah I did, so needless to say I didn’t get it done this weekend like I had hoped haha.Well I got it all printed now and I’ll be editioning them all tomorrow. I’m pretty pleased with the results but lot of detail in the face of The Descent but I expected that because when I drew it I was zoomed in super far. I still think it looks cool though and hopefully you all do too. I’ll make a post soon (for realzies this time) of some doodles/sketches I’ve been doing in the meantime while I finish up The Death of Odin.

What’s up everyone, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Ha, sorry for the long delay but things have been busy as you can imagine. I’ve finished the Transitions series and will begin screenprinting The Descent and The Ascension this weekend. So keep an eye out for another post this weekend with photos of that. Down below here I have included the jpgs of The Descent and The Ascension along with another picture containing all three transitions. If I were to hang these pieces it would probably be something like that. Ok, so moving on from that I’ve completed the Yggdrasil painting but upon having critique today I got a really cool comment about how it looks like there is possibly the face of Odin in it, the bright stars on the right would be his good eye, the tree makes up the bridge of the nose, and the earth is kinda like his mouth with Niflheim inside it. So that seemed like a really beast idea so I think I’m gonna try to subtly add a ghostly face of Odin kinda as if he exists in the cosmos themselves. The last two pictures there are the very beginnings of The Death of Odin and The Death of Thor. I’m still messing around with poses and such but this gives you guys some sort of idea of where I’m possibly heading. For these two paintings though I’m going to try a new approach and complete them in black and white first before adding color. By doing this I think I’ll be able to focus more on my values instead of “oh shit what color do I use here” which seems to be something I worry about a lot haha. Well that’s all for now but keep an eye out for another update this weekend!

Spring break is here

March 8, 2012

Sorry for keeping you all in the dark for a while! I’m on spring break right now and went to New York City with some artist friends for the first few days. I finally got a chance to go to the Metropolitan and see some amazing stuff, I swear I spent about 2 hours JUST looking around the armor/sword room haha. So all in all it was a great trip and I got to take some sweet reference photos for armor and weapons. Still working on the Yggdrasil and actually getting near completion, I’ll post another pic in a few days. Until then, cheers!

Yggdrasil update…

February 24, 2012

Got a base painting down and cleaned up the sketch a little bit. For a background I really wanted a space setting so I asked a good friend of mine, Khalil Riddick, to give me a tutorial sort on painting space. Khalil is an amazing illustrator and designer, definitely check out his page at http://khalilriddickart.wordpress.com/ and show some love. Also with the progress update, I have a quick sketch I did of Odin. Sorry about the quality though, I took it with my phone. He is in Asgard by his throne Hlidskialf holding the mystical spear Gungnir. I’m thinking of using this image as the introduction to my series which will show the deaths of Odin, Thor, Freya and Loki in Ragnarok. In each swirl coming off of Gungnir I would morph in the pictures from the series. Just an idea though, I’m not sure where I’ll go with it. Stay tuned for another update!
