MP: Series 1

Hope you all enjoy my first monthly Mobile Photography Series.  The series will be based on images shot within my vehicle and from my iPhone 6 S.   It will definitely be an exciting series to post on a monthly basis.

STONER

Another week and therefore another topic.

This week’s topic at Lifeform.co:  STONER

I have followed up on playing around with letters with the last two topics.  Stoner seemed like a fun way to incorporate stones and give it a different take.

SCUM 

This week’s topic at Lifeform.co:  SCUM

A new week means it’s a new topic for the Lifeform Drawing Challenge.  I have missed out on some really good topics here the last couple of weeks, however I was able to whip this one up here.

Block Printing 

As I begin to explore more into my own zine project, I thought about block printing and the great things I can include in my zine.

So I have ventured out and attempted my first cuts on a Lino Block.  I am pleased and excited to see the results.  I’m sure I have a lot of practice ahead of me before I begin to produce some really bad ass prints.

Revenge

This week’s topic at Lifeform.co:  Revenge

 

Well sucks I missed out on last weeks topic which happened to be “Spider”  Maybe I’ll make some time and draw it up soon.  Either way here is this weeks submission.

This was a late night quickie with sharpies.

Robot

This week’s topic at Lifeform.co:  Robot

Robots, what a fun topic to get the drawing juices flowing.  How can you go wrong here. The robot theme was a great way to play around with many different ideas and styles.  I sketched this out and then inked it all with a sharpie.

To finish it off I scanned the drawing into Illustrator to give it life.

Lifeform Demon

A few weeks back I drew out a piece for Lifeform.co that I wanted to come back and vector out.  So the last few days I have been working to finish up this Demon piece.

I drew lots of inspiration from the Japanese demon style tattoos as well as the samurai mask color schemes. I didn’t do much with the background just to keep focus on the main character but the end result is great.

Here is the original drawing.

Here you can see the final inked version or vectored version ready for color.

Finally the end result.

Bonanza 

This week’s topic at Lifeform.co:  Bonanza

I have to say I truly enjoy the weekly challenges.  It’s been a great way to really allow me to focus on drawing weekly and daily.  Yet another challenging topic this week but I feel like I nailed it pretty good.

Museum

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to go and visit the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.  Really brings back a lot of memories, going as  child on school trips and having the opportunity to be amazed.

Same thing here recently.  It’s amazing to see so many new changes and new attractions they have added.  While visiting I did take advantage and captured a few images using my iPhone 6S Plus.  Some minor edits where made with the phone as well.

Plague

This week’s topic at Lifeform.co:  Plague

This was a bit more challenging to figure out on what to draw.  I did see lots of submissions for the Plague Doctor so I figured why not give it a go.  Yes I know many others did similar pieces but I found the Plague Doctor to be very interesting.  Besides that I had already sketched this bird skull out a few months back. So why not give it a sharpie makeover.

The last few days I have been working on getting content ready for the new shop.  Along with that, I have been working on setting up the shop and making sure it’s all running smooth for the launch.  I never realized how much work goes into it but I sure am excited to launch.

There will be lots of goodies for sale, everything from Tees, Canvas Art, Stickers and Vector Downloads.

Here is a preview of one of the Vector items that will be available.

KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS

I had the awesome opportunity to visit the KAWS exhibit this weekend.  What a great experience being able to see the creativity and the beauty of all the work.  If you have not yet had the opportunity to get out and see the exhibit, I recommend you do so before it ends.

Exhibit is being shown at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  Visit the link for more details: http://www.themodern.org/exhibit/kaws

Well here are a few of my favorites from the exhibit.  Hope you enjoy.

Working hard in 2017.

2017 has arrived and I have been working hard to have the site up an running with content.  First off, I can’t thank you all enough for visiting the site and supporting when you purchase art work.

Well,  I hope to have more content up soon and begin to build a blog for you all to read.  I can’t promise it will be a daily blog post but I do promise to add content as often as possible.

See you soon.
