I’m always trying to prepare for the next piece before I’m finished with the one I am currently working on (AND has a deadline). I’m not sure if this is a good habit to have as sometimes I get too excited about the new idea and I start to lose interest in the old.
C’mon hands, work faster!
That being said, here is the sketch for my next piece, once I finish with “Tattooed Girls“.
I present to you, Captain Bucket.
Paper to my left. Paper to my right. No doubt there is paper behind me. Do you know what it’s like to be overwhelmed by paper? This is only a fraction of what I’m having to deal with right now. Different shapes, sizes, material, cold press, warm press, heavy weight, light weight, prices… I could go on.
My conundrum at the moment is choosing the perfect shade of grey (insert witty 50 Shades of Grey joke here). I’m in the midst of deciding whether I want a warm grey or a cold grey. Maybe a creamier grey or a greener grey. Should it be a little rosy? Seriously, there are way more greys than you’d think (insert second witty 50 Shades of Grey joke here).
Here are some of the 50 shades of grey, none of which are very kinky:
Drawing doesn’t appear to be as easy as some would think. There are many different areas in which one needs to make decisions. Every detail is throughly thought over. Should this line be 2mm longer or shorter? Is that elbow on the same plane as the hip? Does this need to be darker or lighter? Because some drawing seems to be “simple” it is even more important that all decisions are taken very seriously. Our work is very important to us.
With Time of the Month coming up soon and quickly (next weekend!) I’ve enlisted the help of Katie Barber, a wonderful artist and book maker here in Toronto (and one hot babe to boot) to pose for my reference photos.
Tattoos and booty shorts for the win.
This piece if going to be a little different than my usual subjects and I’m really excited to try something new!
Time of the Month v4 oon July 20th, – Toronto CA
It’s time again! After a brief hiatus in June (it’s summer, we all need a little vacation sometimes), TIME OF THE MONTH is back, version 4.
Time of the Month is moving from its original host to a new home, HAVEN at 615A Brock (ever so slightly north of Bloor). This time around we get a whole day of music and art from noon to 2am.
This month we coincide with the Big on Bloor Festival, so stop by, grab a drink, check out some wonderful artists (and maybe take some art home with you).
Snacks & bar available all day. The party starts at noon and goes til late.
