Get Back to Work

So with all the random things popping up in the past few months, I realized there is one piece I’ve been ignoring for a few months. Today I decided it’s time to sit back down and get to work on it again and focus back on some certain skills I’m trying to brush up on. Here’s how it’s looking now (after adding a bit of shading and line work earlier today). Hopefully the finished one will be done sooner than later to share here.

Friday Preview!

Currently I’m working on something based around one of all time favorite films: Ghostbusters! I thought I’d give a little sneak peek here. Also, I thought I’d use this as a chance to announce that I’m currently working on a store that will be connected to www.pastramiarts.com (which is also getting updates). Once completed you’ll be able to find this print and others available there. Hopefully next week there will be more updates on all of this!

You look familiar…

A while back there was a post that included a portrait I had done of Axl Rose. In the months since I’ve done a handful of other celebrity portraits for fun and practice. For your viewing pleasure, here’s some below:

Get Down to Business

Today I thought it could be interesting, maybe even fun (but I won’t push it), to share the progression of a recent piece. Currently this piece, “Business Sox”, is on display with other pieces of mine at the Yellow Rose Gallery here in Madison so if you are in Wisconsin, come check it out. This bad boy is 18×24″ and the mediums used are pencil and coffee. Coffee. Crazy, right? I worked on this one from probably about mid January until the end of April. It was the odd thing on my while that all guests were forced to face. Enjoy:
