Classes cancelled for winter weather so we are getting some sculpting done. Rhinoceros and zombies are trending today.

First large painting for the New Year.

I have been fermenting on this idea, image for a while. Working on the big side today.

Jack at StreetArt Class

Mr. Jack is working hard on fill-ins. Lots of bits, broken rectangles and contrasting colors. We used the ‘sugar’ paint on card board about 6″ x 4″.

Day light savings time is working against us today. I have added a new day time shot.

Mr. Jack working from sketch. We are loving the new colors from ‘the paint yard’ and love getting boxes in the mail!

The street art class started in 2016 at Sis and Moon’s tree house studio. Alex Feliciano teaches art, form, and design with street art. For more info visit Sis and moons website

What makes a monster.

Witch monster scares you most?

This is a doodle from my IPhone’s digital sketch book called, ‘Tiny Pink Sketchbook’, made with Paper 53. I doodle anytime I get a minute, most sketches are connected to the part of my brain that I can’t always talk too, until it draws me a picture. Lots of artist have verbalized this in different ways… enjoy.

The witch makes me wonder what makes them frightening? She has no claws, teeth, fur, muscles, or slim which makes her the most interesting monster. Drawn as ugly green women to make us shrink in our theater chair but looking closer she is now my favorite classic monsters depicted reading books. Smart girls make folks run in fear?

What makes a monster.

‘The gravity of the earth is pulling me down.’, says Swamp Thing.

‘The best place to lay eggs?’ The slimy creature thinks as it watches you skipping rocks. ‘A host to houses my eggs, something warm and tasty.’ Swamp thing thinks as it silently slips into the cold dry air. Looking down at reflections in still eye. She smiles at you after your breath is gone, ‘What a happy nest this will make. I’m such a good mom.’ She smiles as you’re dragged under.

Kinda grossing myself out with this one.

Large Doodling 11×14

Big clouds blow away to reveal a b-boy on a bicycle, chased by a dog who would’ve been happy with a bone, and a girl who likes robots.

And odd one eyed four legged kids, following friends who come from nowhere.

Today lots of work in my head that needs to come out.

Bag of markers

What makes a monster.

The werewolf haunts the countryside unable to find home. Between the villages and the trees family on both sides of the divide, but unable to join.

Lots of stories about the werewolf as a way to understand the natural world. Other stories of a rabid animal who wants to destroy the world.

What makes a monster.

Next monster is Frankenstein’s creation, making something that can’t be predicted. Who will be the lucky one, the survivors.

There is a lot to take apart, like why is a reanimated biological entity scary? Why do we fear it?

Late night drawing

Tonight the house is quiet, dishes clean, and the kids asleep. In that stillness I blow the dust from a large 11″x14″ sketchbook.

Drawing and watercolor of a bearded gentleman holding coffee.goofing around with Windsor Newton watercolor pens. I have been sitting on these things for a while. The foam brush is nice.Really liking the marker ‘brush’ on this watercolor maker. When you are super fresh, show and prove.

Some markers…

What makes a monster.

The Dracula, a force of mystery and seduction. It’s a undead force with a cunning mind, that plots and is vengeful. It is the teeth that we associate with power, a vehicle for the blood that it needs.

This drawing done with the app Paper53, on the iPhone 5s, and with my finger, Alex Feliciano, 10/2017
