A couple of sketches I did while sitting at my table at sakura-con. 

I’ll likely be doing some online print sales and button grab bags followed by putting new stuff up in my shop.  Also, I’m aiming to do some commissions in June if anyone is interested.

Contemporary Art Week!

Kehinde Wiley

Los Angeles native and New York-based visual artist Kehinde Wiley has firmly situated himself within art history’s portrait painting tradition. As a contemporary descendent of a long line of portraitists—including Reynolds, Gainsborough, Titian, Ingres, and others—Wiley engages the signs and visual rhetoric of the heroic, powerful, majestic, and sublime in his representation of urban black and brown men found throughout the world.

By applying the visual vocabulary and conventions of glorification, wealth, prestige, and history to subject matter drawn from the urban fabric, Wiley makes his subjects and their stylistic references juxtaposed inversions of each other, forcing ambiguity and provocative perplexity to pervade his imagery. Wiley’s larger-than-life figures disturb and interrupt tropes of portrait painting, often blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation and the critical portrayal of masculinity and physicality as it pertains to the view of black and brown young men.

I’m finally finished this self indulgent bird boyfriend badge set that I’ve been teasing. They all ended up really detailed and I hope they print well!

I’ll be selling them at Anime North and over on storenvy!

I might need these.

Homura is spider lillies and Madoka has forget-me-not.  Needless to say, I just rewatched the third movie.

Cleaning out my filing cabinet, I found this handout that I made for my mini-comics class. Hope it’s helpful! Remember, it ain’t only for comics. Self-publish short stories, collections of drawings or sketches, or blank for journals/sketchbooks, etc.

Good notes!

This is perfect.
