More DK studies

Working my painting chops with the Dam Keeper crew!!!
The top was an indoor setup. The goal here was to capture the texture and the subtle lighting.
 Digital // 2 hrs

The bottom was another 2 hr plein aire. It was a perfectly overcast morning at the  Emeryville Marina

back to basics

The Dam Keeper crew went plein aire painting this morning! I haven't painted outside in ages and I was feeling super clumsy with my watercolors :> was loads of fun anyway.

Sleep by Salvador Dali
My friend Justin commissioned me to design a Salvador inspired tattoo for him. It has been in the works for a while but he finally got it done. He wanted to incorporate the stilts motif that's found in plenty of Dali's work ..and jellyfish.

 Here's a piece I did for my Conceptual Illustration class with the Barron last semester. We chose the theme, Future Myths. My take resulted in a kind of silly( but totally plausible) mechanical garbage-eating shark world.  

I submitted both of these pieces to Brevspread, a Bay area monthly arts and letters zine. They are producing some great material and always looking for submissions, so check it!
