Art

A bunch of my graphic art. Copyright me, OK? Some of it is NSFW.

Every day, life sets the stage and everyday it tells us a different story about our lives and our people and everyday we believe it. What a bunch of simpletons we must be.

I may add on to this. We’ll see where it goes.

I’m not showing the RIGHT way to do this, just the way that appealed to me. There’s a lovely subtlety and dignity of age in the originals, I’m just having fun with my updates..

I have a (hopefully short) fascination with selfies and the templated, iconic  poses that people use like symbols. I scanned a whole bunch using only black and white to see how simple the image can get and still easily be understood. The answer is pretty damn simple. These things are branding or logos to make us  instantly recognizable to the “customers” browsing and swiping.

(Blue steel, Ferrari, Le Tigre, and Magnum are the names of poses from Zoolander.)

Portrait of the artist as a young portrait. It only seems natural to start interpreting selfies as art. There is a classic pose framed carefully. The sitter composes their face as they wish to be seen. It only remains to make a painting out of it. I can’t wait to do a duck face.
I think I’m going to tackle a series of these and see how it goes. Here is  a rough example.

The subtext is using Photoshop’s camera raw filter. It’s a miracle worker for pulling amazing results out of poor quality photos. But as you see here, it’s a blast for creative stuff too! Oh and here’s a shout out to naked ladies everywhere.

I’m going to insert a jump link so that nobody has to look at naked ladies

The blessing of Saint Doggo be upon ye.

I suspect there are interesting things behind some of these.

It’s not hard to figure out what I’m feeling.

 

And now, this.

Very few of the images used in these composites are mine. The artistic idea here is about the relationships, impressions, and stories told by GROUPS of unrelated images. There are relationships of color and content imposed by me but the outcome is greater (or at least different) than the sum of its parts. It’s kind of a visual treatment of the “Third Mind” concept…seeing what emerges as the whole made of disparate parts. It becomes impossible to isolate a single part from the influence of the whole.

Each class has 6 Abilities with a cool down and recharge period or limited uses.

Most credit here goes to Isaac Miller, I made some visuals to showcase his writing.
There are 3 basic abilities, 2 higher level abilities that can be used up to 10 times per game, and an Ultimate ability that can be used twice a game with a five minute cool down period between uses. There is a 1.5 minute warm up before first use.

Just got a crazy obsession this morning. I follow a subreddit about historical artifacts and thought to try placing some in scenes that look more natural to them. This is a Marine Style Octopus Jar – from ancient Mycenae.

Just more fuckin’ art. Sexuality, feelings. Trying to convey something of the experience.  Obviously NSFW.

Random recent experiments.

I’ve started making fantasy landscapes. These are all weird hybrid collage/paintings showing places I either want to escape TO or from. There’s more creativity going into making these in the first place than it looks. The starting pieces are nothing like the finish. I’m finally starting to do a lot of painting, Feeling a bit compulsive about it, actually but I’m suddenly coming up with a lot of techniques that seem open doors to cool new places.

Curiosities, quirks and obsessions continued.

I don’t know why I’ve been so focused on it but I’m trying to stretch, I get frustrated with my mediocre skill. These are recent explorations into how far I can push it in hopes of making something interesting. Context warning: Nudity.

It’s very humble, a cottage, really. But it’s home.
