Florence in the Beginning

Hey everyone this time I have some process shots. for now its a rough sketch and some sketch practice. Florence and the Machine is a kick ass group who was nominated for grammys and a bunch of other awards all around the world. Florence's dramatic storytelling, grandiose vocals, and complex music make her long overdue for to Illustrated. I noticed a lack of good florence and the machine illustrations and I aim to rectify that issue. Here go those drawings I promised, and I'll be posting the final piece at some point next week along with a full explanation of what's going on in this piece. :)

Here's a Rose for you! Happy Valentine's day everybody!

Hosni Mubarak Resigned

Holy Crap! Egypt recently succeeded in persuading their leader of 30 years to resign late last week, after several protests that turned somewhat violent Hosni Mubarak decided to resign. I started my Mubarak piece right before he resigned. Its pretty much him sinking to the bottom the Nile destructing along the way. His reign is over I'm happy that most of Egypt got what they wanted, I'm hoping they can be a better and more united country with a new leader, now I'm just wondering who's next to revolt.

Also my process is still evolving I'm finding that lately watercolor and Photoshop are my friends. Here's the painting below and the final piece above. New sketches and more work coming soon. Thanks for reading :)

Back in the Swing of Things

Hey Everyone, I'm finally getting back into the swing of things been doing a little bit of painting and a lot sketching. Got some great pieces to work on, as well as a crazy challenge that me and some friends are embarking on. We're calling it the Gryndtime 2011 challenge, its pretty much a piece a week for the rest of the year. If all goes as planned we all will have new portfolios by the end of April. Well here's some demon animal studies, and some potential future pieces. :)
