I am in work and it just got boring. So, I came on here to tell you all. I should update more seeing as I don't that often. I am in the midst of making a website for the musician, Aphex Twin (aka AFX, Richard D. James, Caustic Window, etc.) and I realized I don't have one of my own! I'll start doing that at some point!
I should also show more work... wait, I already said that.

So, I am now working on the sketches for the Odd Thomas series more. Got three almost ready (worked on 6) to paint. I assume that this will help my portfolio and help me get somewhere in life. Ugh. I hate working late. Finished a flash project.

Finished my first illustration for this semester. Responding to the Massachusetts turning republican.
Early stages - general wash over broad areas. Ultramarine wash first over drawing, then a burnt umber wash over brick area. Left bucket untouched. Started filling in bricks with zinc white and zinc white/hansa yellow medium.
Brick stage - painted bricks around drawing of the state showing through paint.
Wash and bucket stage - to make sure the bricks don't have a sharp contrast I applied a zinc white wash over the area. I also painted in the concrete sidewalk, brush and bucket.
Democratic paint stage - In order to make it seem like the red was applied over the blue I did what made sense: apply the blue down first.
finishing touches - dropped the red down over the blue. added detail to the bucket and brush along with the bricks on the red state area.
