Day 109- A portion of a draft of a flyer I did for a client
Day 110- Flyer that the company wanted and used.
Day 111- Glimpse of another flyer I worked on.
Day 112- I still wanted to create a comic book superhero composition, so I was sketching and here’s one sketch.
Day 113- Sketching out ideas
Day 114- Beginning of the newest Sugar Skull process. If you were following me on twitter, you would’ve seen the process via twitpic
Day 116-Almost complete, but not quite
Day 117- The final result. I mocked it up on a t-shirt, because people were asking for it to be sold as a t-shirt. Since they were asking for this on a t-shirt I decided to see if I would print this up.
Day 118- Just doodling, hoping something would strike.
It never hurts to learn how to draw realistically if you do not know how to. This video, I chose one of my favorite subjects, the human eye. This video is brought to you by Mark Crilley and you can check out his other videos in his youtube and check out his site here.
This is a cool pop culture design-VanTino by Gigart If you don’t understand the reference, it’s a picture of director Quentin Taratino and a reference to Reservoir Dogs which shares it’s similarities with Van Gogh. As a fan of his movies and Van Gogh’s art, this is a win-win. This was features at the Bold Hype Gallery in NYC as part of “The Quentin vs. Coen Show”. The print will be available soon and will be an eight color silk screen poster sized at 18″ x 24″. There are other prints available, but you’ll have to wait or maybe you could ask when this will be available. Go here to see prints by Gigart.
Check out this video done by Higher Level Art. They transform two social studies classrooms for Holmes High School and Middle School in Covington, Kentucky into a very elaborate exciting room full of art. This was done in 10 days and it’s an amazing job that was done. Watch the process of how this gets done.I don’t think anyone will fall asleep in this class room, if anything the students will be distracted by the art in the room. Very well done.

This sculpture is very intriguing to me. I like how the sculpture was displayed appropriately in the gallery. It’s interesting, especially since the foot is stepping on small people, they look like army men. I feel if I was there, this would attract my attention immediately.
Complex magazine has put a list of the 50 strangest jobs you can get in the art world. I find it funny how the first one mentioned is start a t-shirt company. Other jobs mentioned are becoming a body painter, a master of the mixtape art, comic book colorist, an animator for jumbotrons, conservator of arms and armo, and a designer for waterparks. I think some of the jobs mentioned are normal, it’s just getting the work into certain fields that may seem like it’s odd. Painting portraits of your pets? You’re a painter, who specializes in painting animals. I don’t see anything odd, because you’re a painter.

T-shirt company, Rethink Clothing has a sale where tees are $5 or $10 on their older tees. Rethink is a t-shirt company that proud that they only use college artists to design their tees. I think it’s good that they offer the portfolio pieces for college students, but at the same time I feel this is just a gimmick. Hey, sometimes gimmicks get you where you want. Any hoot, there are some cool looking tees that would be awesome to be picked up.
Look out for some new tees in the future, because Rethink is working with an artist which makes the next set of shirts look very promising.
