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!

NEW Graphic Doodles

French Bouquet on Blush

“French Bouquet on Blush”

I want to make this large, and use and altered version of my handwriting as the font for ‘Bonjour’. I think this print will look better on blush.

Accidental Inspiration: Red Roof

I was using some shapes and colors to create an interesting pattern for assignment I was doing at work a few months ago. I thought it look pretty good, but not quite right for the assignment.

Post Cards (February)

I was going to make a series of post cards, one for each month, but… I never stuck with it. Sad, I know. However, here is the first one I did (February).

Here are some close ups.

New Illustrations

I’m working with Crayola Crayons again, in hopes to capture the same…youthful vibrancy of my childhood drawings. I guess that’s the best way to put it.
