Art on the right, EGD on the left...
At one time, this site was divided into fine art and Environmental Graphic Design projects. It eventually homogenized, and there is no longer any differentiation between the two categories, here.
Please forgive the barely-average video quality of the avi-format as exported by SketchUp. IF for whatever strange reason, you wanted a larger, much cleaner file to view, email me and I'll send the original SketchUp file. BUT... you'll need the free download of Google's 3-D Sketchup at [duh] http://www.sketchup.google.com/. It's only about 30mg and a great way to make about nine hours disappear without a trace. Mac and PC/Vista.
SCRATCHBOARD IS NOT A BLOGSITE
Scratchboard is an illustrative style wherein ink is scratched off a white board. It's scratched off. The board. Scratched. This was a backpage illo for the Austin Chronicle published during the Dia De Los Muertos celebration. For a full-size image, scroll down to February's posts, and see "DEAD ZONE". The purple funk is deleted.
Here's a traditional (NO DIGITAL) illustration for Steck Vaughn Raintree Publishing. The "textbook" people. Rapidograph pens, Kohinor inks, and real watercolor paper. A math equation was later added in the bubble.
Oil on canvas 36" x 24". Typical of my late-night works.
A pencil illo also for Steck Vaughn. They relaxed their white-washed rules regarding ethnic depiction, in order to allow African-American features and natural hair in this drawing for an adult textbook. (I refused to resubmit a drawing with unbraided hair and unrealistic features.)
An editorial illustration for the Chronicle, regarding an annual Poetry-Slam. The Chron folks are great to work with, and allow a lot of creative freedom."Hey, draw something" is a typical editorial direction.
Oil on canvas / 36" x 24". The 2" thumbnail of this piece does it no justice...
