This is the final piece and some images of the physical postcards that I made for the 6 Degrees show at Light Grey Art Lab. The show opens this Friday, so if you are in the area, check it out and let me know what it’s like! Large prints of this image as well as limited edition postcards can be purchased HERE for a limited time!
A few weeks ago, I was rummaging through old photos and found some hidden gems. These are some quick environment paintings I did from photos I took during my time in Kansas City at the Illustration Academy. Each took a little over an hour to complete.
Never posted a photo of my #ctnexpo haul! Excuse me while I roll around in this pile of awesome.
I am thrilled to be taking part in Light Grey Art Lab’s 6 Degrees show that opens this December! All of the participating artists were asked to create a postcard that depicts something unique about their hometown. Since I am from Miami (a.k.a. North Cuba, The 305, etc.) I decided to show a young girl in a frilly Quinceañera dress coasting through mangrove tunnels on the back of an alligator. In the latin culture, a quinceañera is a coming of age celebration for young women who are turning 15 years old, a lot like a sweet 16 or a bat mitzvah. They are extravagant events that bring friends and family together, and while I never had one, I have attended several and was part of the “court” for my cousin’s back in the day. So this is kind of like a late quinceañera present to myself hahaha. I will be posting the final art and pictures of the physical postcards soon, so stay tuned!
Here’s another oldie until I get back home and can post something new. The assignment was to take a legend from the place where we grew up and make character concepts and an illustration about it. This final piece is based on Ponce de Leon’s search for the Fountain of Youth in Florida.
It’s not Thursday, but here’s some random old-ish stuff anyway. Throwback Tuesdaaayy!
Start your week with a good cup of tea. Relax.
Feels so good to get back to a figure class. I definitely needed that. #drawing #portrait
So since I finally have some free time on my hands, I’ve decided to try my hand at the 30 day drawing challenge! This is my first one: “Someone from your favorite board or video game.”
I know that I’m not the only one who is FREAKING EXCITED about the announcement that Kingdom Hearts 3 is in development at E3 2013. Finally. I’m predicting a launch date that coincides with the 10th anniversary of KH1’s release… but of course it will then get pushed back another couple of years because that’s just how these things go. And because my poor heart hasn’t suffered enough anticipation. I WILL be that middle aged woman playing a kid’s game, I don’t care.
