Seattle's been getting some amazing weather lately, for this time of year. Instead of going outside and enjoying it, I've been cooked up in the art dungeon, I mean, studio, working on some new pieces for an upcoming Seattle show. For first Thursday, I'll be sharing some wall space at Flatcolor Gallery with the amazing Dave Macdowell. If you haven't seen his work before, take some time and check out his website.
Here's some rough pencils of the painting from the flyer. The background image is based on the same image you'd find in the traditional Mexican loteria game. Something my mom and aunts would pull out every now and then and try to get us to play as kids. It never lasted too long since it was always hard to compete with Star Wars toys and the Atari 2600.
Anyway, I'll try and post more images as the show gets closer. On another note, here are a few links to some cool process related art videos and images I recently came across. One that I highly recommend is the new Sebastian Kruger iphone app that has 31 images from beginning to end of his Michael Jackson portrait from last year's workshop. Totally worth $2.99.
