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!
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.
This was a result of a happy accident using Live Trace in Adobe illustrator.
