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.
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:
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:
Well, it has been some time. One reason could be juggling multiple jobs, handling flyer design for area events, working on commissions, and displaying personal artworks in a few places. Or another could just be laziness. All the other things have been going and the progress of other artwork has kept me from some of the cartoon photos as of late. If you checkout www.PastramiArts.com you can see what it is that’s kept the Basket a bit empty.
There have been some goofy illustrations I’ve worked on that feel right at home on the ol’ PB so I’ll definitely share those. Next week I hope to post a bit more about what has been going on with work on display as well showing the development of some of it. Until then: Cartoons!
