Portrait Sketch “Ophelia”

I decided last minute to call this drawing from my sketchbook “Ophelia” (not in anyway connected to Shakespeare’s Ophelia in Hamlet).

“A Beautiful Medusa in Water”

Some nudity, not safe for work (NSFW)

I decided to change of the character in Greek mythology and make the Medusa young and beautiful, but still with a head full of snakes.

Character Sketches

The character is for a short story are wrote a couple years ago. She’s a modern teenager with retro (1950s/60s) fashion sense. I sort of modeled her after myself and gave her glasses, but unlike my own her’s have the cateye frames.

Sketches: “Sisters” & “Young Cordial”

You’ll notice a lot of my sketches are done on not so great paper. I doodle on scratch paper while I’m on break/lunch at work.

New Art & Art Shows

I’ve been slacking from blogging a bit, but have been working on trying to get my work out there more this year (and in the future). Here are some finished pieces I’ve done (2012-2013). The majority were done in graphite and ink, with the exception of “Home” (which has color created with a colored pencil) and “Secret Garden (which was done in crayon). I submitted the first one (below) and the work titled (House in the Mountains” for the Lawndale Big Show, but was not accepted. The other pieces where  featured in the JoMar Visions Group Show last month. I will also be submitting works for the 17th Annual Citywide African American Artists Exhibition sponsored by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH). Last year my work titled “Thomas & Janie” was accepted. Wish me luck!
