Day 2’s Posts
I was nominated by the talented Briana Hertzog to post 3 images a day for 5 days. Here are my posts for day 2:
Today I would like to nominate the insightful Richie Pope, partially because I just found this gem that he sketched back in the day. 😉
Yesterday I was nominated by the talented Briana Hertzog to post 3 images a day for 5 days. Briana and I met when studying at Virginia Commonwealth University in their Communication Arts program. I always enjoy seeing the imaginative work she creates and look forward to those that come. Along with my post I will nominate another person for the challenge. I would like to thank Briana for this this is a great opportunity. I think it is a great time for reflection as I try to make decisions about how to direct my work towards a collective body of images.
Today my images show 3 different types of work I greatly enjoy creating:
Now I nominate an individual that if it were not for him I would not have met Briana because he introduce me to the idea of illustration and VCU’s Communication Art program. . . Mr Whitney Misch.
As some of you know I have joined the Arts by the Bay Gallery in Havre de Grace, Maryland. Havre de Grace is a beautiful little town by the water in the north east of Harford County. We are about 30 minutes north of Baltimore.
At our last meeting I was chosen as the featured artist for the May 16th Gallery Exhibition and I am super excited!
Water for Elephants
I decided to focus the show on my anatomy and illustration. I wanted to see how the my work for medical illustration and other personal work fit together. I tend to think that because I use such a diverse set of mediums and subject matters, that I am lacking a style. But as I put things next to each other a small “Je ne sais quoi” seems to appear. Again, I am very excited to share all of my work with anyone who can make it to the gallery.
I think this comes at a good time. It allows me to see where this work has brought me. Going through the piles of art has given me an opportunity to think about what I was trying to do with each piece, and whether I was successful. It also gave me a chance to find “hidden jewels”. Pieces which I previously thought were crap, but now seem kind of neat. Maybe there is something in each work that I subconsciously put in them all. . .
See the rest of the picks this Friday May 16th 7 – 9pm! See the other art by the rest of the Arts By The Bay Community, amazing art and good company!
