was my second time showing at the Art of Records curated by Dunn the Signtologist. Here is the initial sketch and the final painting as it was displayed at the opening, and some process and detail shots. I was also asked to take a photo with the work by the Westword photographer, so you get a sense of scale for the painting. I chose to re-create Sean Price Monkey Barz in a more realistic manner than the original cover art by Romeo and Raphael Tangal. Sean Price is among my favorite artists and one who constantly has hand made cover artwork, so it made complete sense to re-envision this particular cover art. Completed in acrylic on wood, at the scale of the original vinyl, this painting was time consuming and gratifying to complete in this fashion. Many more amazing works were created for the show, take a trip to the Denver Solution to see more. You can view my first Art of Records piece by clinking on the link here. Thanks for stopping in to view the work, more posts this coming week on current projects.
is being made on the new cover art, and here is the latest. Digital color ways to give me and the client a feel for the overall palette, and the basis for the painting tones. I also have changed the final layout and added a few elements. Excited to start slinging some paint on board with this one so keep an eye out for those posts. The few light shapes in the focal area are a hint of the rendering process I will utilize for the entire painting. Thanks for stopping in to view the work, more on many projects in future posts.
for an upcoming cover art project. I have been working through the roughs and getting the line drawings seamed up and ready for color studies. The last post was the beginning stages of these concepts, and here are the next layers on those characters and an initial layout. The story and basis for this project will be made known in later posts so stay tuned for that. Having a lot of fun with these line drawings and putting more personality and emotion into the individual characters. Thanks as always for stopping in, look for more on this project in future posts.
I realize I have been slacking on getting posts out to you all, but I assure you it is because I have
been creating wonderful things to share with you. One of those things is an upcoming project that I can only share some rough sketches for now. I have been doing a lot of greyscale roughs using markers in the sketchbook, so here are a few for you. More info on upcoming and past shows, as well as new projects in future posts, bear with me. Thanks for stopping by.
