What a day!! Have some more Balance artwork.

incomplete drawing of a young man lifting a basket in the interior of a hut

Check it out, his hand and arm aren’t done! CrAZy!!

This young man is about to go pick some flowers. Or was, several years ago, before I mysteriously stopped drawing him and NEVER STARTED AGAIN. I actually don’t know why…??

Shadow men

two shadowy faceless men, one staring at the viewer

Just sketches that came out of a job I’m currently doing. It’s always fun to experiment with some unremarkable photo you have and mess with all the settings until you end up with something terrifying like this! I might develop them either for Night Gallery 2014 or for my upcoming Darkness reload, we’ll see.

Tree linework!

clean, complicated and numerous lines begin to suggest the form of a deciduous tree.

This is most of the linework from Elegy, the only progress shot I think I have of it. I just love the complexity of all the lines in an organic shape like a tree, and these lines here don’t even begin to touch on the millions of actual lines that are really there: in the bark, the outlines and veins on every leaf, and so on. A tree really is a stunning visual overload!

So occasionally I just like to stare at this piece every now and then and lose myself in lines. They’re so much easier to see and appreciate without any shading or color to distract from them.

Miao Yin final piece and progress shots!

inspired by cult movie classic Big Trouble in Little China

I hope to post a nice little feature on the Big Lebowski in Little China show soon, but in the meantime I can definitely show you the evolution of Miao Yin from a digital painting to a beaded mixed-media piece with gold ink accents! (I ended up calling the final piece “Miao Miao” through some perverse desire to be a truly horrible person.)

This piece is at PG Gallery until May 17 2014 and is only $85. And trust me, I’m not making another beaded one. One was quite enough!! *PHEW!*

EDIT: This lovely piece has found a home with its biggest fan! I even got to talk to the person who got it, she’s super-sweet. There’s just nothing like seeing one of your pieces go home with someone you know loves it.
