so follow-through maybe not so much my thing. UNTIL NOW.


so i know i said like forever ago that i would post new work. so i finally am, and in your face anybody who concluded that this art blog thing would fizzle out after like a month. i was just a little slow on the uptake, that's all.

this is my first piece for illustration concepts one. the idea was loosely based on a menu cover, specifically illustrating the "four seasons" pizza. basically the menu was a springboard for idea generation and provider of format, and the rest was up to you. so, there are squatties dancing and frolicking joyously around a maypole, since maypoles are springy. in acrylic and ink.

points of contention include the horizon (too low, perhaps?) and the ink (too black? too much?) i have been considering the slate ink pen as a potential new friend in this regard. but i sort of like the idea of a loose painting with details tightened up in ink, or the idea of shape and line not quite matching up. perhaps this will come forward later.

also exciting and of note: website finally up and functioning and wonderful! go see it! link to the left, heart-sleevestudio.com. unless of course, you were directed here via said website, in which case, way to go, man.

last thing: i have been painfully behind in my dailies. well, not so bad, minus the fact that essentially none of august was inked. oh dear. also lacking has been my sketchbook time. i miss it oh so much. we'll see if one or both of those can't be remedied sometime soon. since i'm swimming in spare time. i'll share if i do, i promise. hopefully this can become a fairly regular thing, me and artwork-posting.

Hullo lovey!

I quite like the black ink, although I do agree somewhat with the horizon contention. It pretty much bisects your picture into equal parts which usually makes for an uncomfortable composition for me. Every time I see that, I tend to try and rearrange the picture in my head!
