Hello everybody in TV land! Over the last few months I’ve been dabbling with recording myself while painting and it hasn’t been very fun. I’ve used everything from GoPros to Powershots and from headmounts to my wife holding a camera for an hour. Now after much procrastination I’m gonna share one of my recent tests with you. I still have a long way to go but hey, maybe we can learn together! Anywhoo, check it out and please share any feedback, suggestions, ideas or requests. Enjoy! 🙂
Underground Lasers has a new terrain piece available on their website! The Generic Colonial House is a simple build with a removable door, and roof for access to the interior. The size and practical design can be used for many genres. Painting it was pretty simple too, with just enough details to keep me from feeling bored. I assembled the entire model before painting because I was too anxious to see what it looked like (curse my impatience). In hindsight, I recommend painting all the components separately and then assembling it. Using that process I can see painting several of these in a weekend. Check out the rest of their cool models at UndergroundLasers.com
My animator friend Elliot Cowan gave me some advice on animation and said I should start with a simple ball. So I made this. I wish I had more spare time to work on this kind of stuff. So many hobbies, so little time!
Upon my wife’s request I created this simple graphic. “Sometimes when people talk to me it takes a few seconds to process the information.” Thus a GIF was born. 🙂
After much creative frustration and stagnation, I decided I had to do something to keep me from slowly going mad. I’m a children’s wear artist, and as great as that can be sometimes, no one is going to remember me for the countless bunnies and butterflies I’ve done. So I’ve been doing a drawing a day for the past month now and posting to various social media outlets. I’m going to try keeping this up for the rest of the year in hopes of developing a nice collection of works that maybe I can put together as a book some day. As I’ve been posting my brain droppings, people have been showing interest in buying some of my art. If you are one of those folks, this is the place for you! Make sure to visit my S6 page and follow me on Instagram.
Lazy Day, brush pen on paper
Boredom is my muse. Here’s a little something I did using photoshop and a few pictures with my iPhone. I’m no animator but I can pretend. 😀
An example of my disabled cat attacking my dog. Azula was born with under-developed limbs and tail, however this doesn’t prevent her from harassing River on a regular basis.
