Doodling the next few ideas for the ‘Clem Head’

More ‘Clem Head’ doodles this weekend. I’m using lots of pink, coral and magenta it just keeps happening. I went to 1shot‘s web site (below) they have all the colors I need. I was worried… “How I’m gonna mix that color”. love child, Clem head doodle

I don’t know if i can go full plaid, maybe if I had this machine. I might try to replicate this ‘water transfer printing technique’ with one of the Clem heads, thin paint and a bucket.

Preparing to design more ‘Clem Heads’

Preparing for NEW Clem Dog Head paintings. Lots of ideas (Mexican wrestler, circulatory system, plaids, patterns, and or scale style masks). I though lots of sketches would be a good idea. So I cut a stamp out of this block.

I need to get myself a press, Does anyone have a press they would like to trade for art work?

img_4427

Drawing now starting to cut a new linoleum block, this is going to be fun.

 

img_4428

It took too long to find my knives. Everything came back to me once I had them in my hand.

img_4430

I think that will do it, Now for some ink. I have no black, just brown.


img_4433

Brown ink, now for some hand pressing.

 

img_4432

Filled 20 pages with this dog head, now to plan out the next two Clem Heads. Clem is loving all the attention.

‘Can’t wait till I have a full dog sled team!’

Murph stopped by yesterday He added the red one to his collection, then set me this picture. He now owns three dog heads, more info about them here. Seven heads were cast in the first run, Five have been painted, one is in LA, one is in my living room and Murph has the rest. Congratulations!

From Murph’s instagram:
mowsecafe Drooling over the latest addition to my art collection. Here we have sculptures of the wee doggie Clem (red version is the new one). Was lucky enough to spend some time with the artist and found we had some real parallels in our history, while both being very different. I’m often captivated by other artists and how they operate and manage their workflow. Work by Alex F. The short of it is, that, I’m an artist as well as a collector. If I can afford to collect and support artists; there’s no doubt, that you can too!!

Murph is a painter and collector, check out this FB and keep up with his instagram

Painting number two, “Findings”, digging into the archives for new painting.

The act of discovery is something that set the senses a tingle. While I was digging through old sketchbooks for inspiration, and came across this ink drawing it’s 3.5″x5″.  I’m going to use it for painting number two, working title: Findings. I hope I can keep the spirit of the drawing in the new painting. img_3899-1 I used the attitude in a quick sketch for the painting, The canvas is oriented in portrait and slightly larger. I’m trimming some of the negative space, I hope this doesn’t kill the mood that makes the ink sketch special.img_3900-1Digging the toes on the left. This sketch has a lot of new elements and is different than the small original but i think it will still work.

Preparing a canvas with some fun design work. When I have a canvas that has some work on it, it feels less intimidating. I plays better with my ideas than a scary blank canvas.img_3902

Painting, it begins..again

I have been spending a lot of time this year sketching, in ‘@FiftyThree‘ s Paper53 app on the ipad or at the live drawing events held by #Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group. I think it’s time to start painting now. Working with brushes is flowing like it should. I start to paint after the kids go to bed then I lookup… and the sun is peeking in. Feels great to lose that much time.

Three 40″x30″ canvases, and I have a 40″x70″ that i need to sand and surface. These pieces are still in progress, the one in the center is close to being done.

Working on some, overdue, new pieces for #‎sisandmoon‬‘s. Lots of work to do but it’s coming out like it hasn’t in awhile.

It was hot

An AC malfunction, or a reason to get naked

I came home early it was hot. Flicked controls on the thermostat. Nothing worked, which way is on? Heat cause it’s hot, that doesn’t sound wrong. Open a window, fiddled with the lock, left or right, it would not pop. Sweat, just a drop. That was it for me. I did care who might see. Flung coat and sweater over my head, shed skirt and tights passed my feet, now lounge bare to enjoyed the heat.

New Suit

By the Pool in a new suit

New Suit

The first warm day, the air is clean.
I was to long curled within, sun nibbles willing skin.
I dip my toe, that’s as far as I will go.

Nothing is getting wet. The suit I bought to match the lot, will wait till it is hot.
I smile as the children play, enticing me to join the fray.
From chattering teeth they shout ‘COME IN’, but it’s a bit too cold to swim.

Early

woman sitting on a sandy landscape

Fifteen minutes that’s all I get. Just time enough, time to sit. It’s just three take-five’s rolled in one. Early is on time for some.  Just me, my time to breath. I see a spot and feel the breeze. The sun warm on my skin, feet in sand the cool below. Alone but soon they’ll show, In my head I’ll greet them all, “Hello, and welcome y’all”.

Figure drawing event, Sketchbook look.

More figure drawing. I skipped into the figure drawing event today, like a kid going to get ice cream. The model was super and the lighting was challenging (in a good way).

The short 3 and 5 minute poses came first, then a cookie break and then back to drawing with some longer poses.

This time I didn’t forget to note the times for each drawing.

A three minute pose.

Getting into the 3 Minute thing, But I miss my blue pencil.

This one was super awesome, the model was doing a scary ‘ROAR’ pose but kept laughing. Looking at again I think I was able to get that in the drawing.

More three’s

Now some five minute drawings, the light is good on this one. going from 3 min to 5 min feels decadent.

The model has a pole, really focusing in on the hands and fingers.

Another pole 5 minute pole.

A 10 minute pose and I didn’t know what to do with myself, I spent the extra time on the hair.

Toes are very important. I continued working on the head (on the next page) after i ran out of space


Head hair and face, part of the previous 10 minute.

A twenty minute drawing, up went the hair. A had lots of time to think and see shadows.

The model picked up a guitar and I couldn’t resist working on the feet. They very rarely sit still. 20 min to be continued on the next page.
A quick Fun Fact: When I was in school our teacher, Mr Wyroba, had us draw 50 hands and 50 feet. At the time was was perplexed at the breath of such an undertaking. I remember the Michelangelo hand drawings and photocopies out of the ‘Anatomy for the Artist’ hands being passed around like they where cheat sheets. There were also the empty threats to do all fifty as middle finger salutes. I am so grateful for the support of my classmates and that lesson. I talk about the importance of hands and feet as a form of expression when ever I get the chance.

With 5 minutes-ish left I wanted to work on her hand holding the guitar.

Back to the feet for the last minute.

With this 20 minute I wanted to map some color. The light was taunting me with blue shadows.

Yes that is a giant guitar, very flat and it was hard to change my paradigm so I wrote it in.

A nice outline.

The last 15 minute, I think the model fell asleep on this one, I was able to focus on the face here.

Fly go by

woman flinging her top like a rubber band

Fly go by

Buzz buzz a nasty thing woke me from a sun filled dream. I saw a Fly go by, so I took my top off and sent it high. I pulled and pulled till the strings went twang then I launched at that tiny thing. It took a sec I used my eye aiming carefully down the line. The Fly saw me cocking back and almost had a heart attack. With a bit of a huff the fly began to fuss. “Me!” it said, “Oh no, why would you go semi-nude, just to swat this awesome dude”.

Fields of Flowers

 Fields of flowers

Fields of flowers first pink and blue, I bought a suit that will sneak me through. Then today purple and yellow. I have been waiting all week things are on schedule. I bought this suit weeks ago to match a landscape, I’m not allowed to go. The bunnies will be playing ball, I will creep softly among them all. They will not see me. ‘Shh’, is what I think as one comes near. I hold my breath with hope and fear. It’s little nose sniffs the air. I feel so happy then I see… they are all staring at me. All at once they charge my way. I jump but i’m too slow. They tickle me from head to toe. I guess they just want to play.

Street art… Class!

Great working coming out of class this week. Jack pounded out character after character, so fast I didn’t get a picture of them all, “I’m just going to paint over this”.   Nicole nailed it with a 4 panel piece “Life”. The effort she’s putting into sketching is coming though in her can control and line work.

nicole, LIFE

More new, old cat paintings.

I have been painting cat since Florida. My now wife had a cat and it was hard not to like it. Ester was a wonderful calico that inspired many cat drawings and paintings. This is one of them.

Figure drawing event, Sketchbook look.

Lots of figure drawing lately. It is good to draw like this again. I went to a class in Alpharetta, the ‘Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group’. They have a nice academic format, ten to twenty one minute warm ups, then some five and ten minute drawings. Oh and did I mention the cookies, lots of cookies. Then after a cookie break we do some longer poses.

On this day, my first time at the event I forgot to note the times for each drawing… fear not I will fix that in the future.

IMG_1752

This was a short pose, I felt like warming up with hands. First time sketch live models in two plus years.

IMG_1753

More hands to warm up, feeling good now.

IMG_1754

I am able to get some back and face in this one, I think the lighting was very challenging, that’s a good thing, so it took a minute to find my values.

IMG_1755

Now some feet.

IMG_1756Shoulders and chest.

IMG_1757

Toes, need to do some toes… Fake means from memory.  While she was changing poses, maybe..

IMG_1759

Ahh a slightly longer pose. I like the ‘lay’ of the hand in this one.

IMG_1760

Again the light was challenging I remember trying to find shadows.

IMG_1761

This was a long pose 10 or 15 minutes, I think…

IMG_1762

The model was switching poses and seamed so naturally at rest while she rubbed her hands, I think it might have been cold in the studio.

IMG_1763

Last and longest pose.

Late Night Monster

This is an old piece I found hiding in a friends room, it was never finished. I thought about re-working the canvas but decided to digitally work it instead. This is my first attempt. I’m using Paper53 on the iPad with a digital stylus ‘Pencil’, all very strange and fun. #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com

Class notes and homework

Hola class…

Homework

  1. Practice letter forms, pick words  containing two vowels (like: seam, hoaps, lazer, or denim, feel free to make up words).

Examples

  1. This intersecting style below shows the construction of the letter, when using this alphabet erase overlapping/intersecting lines as needed to make the letter whole.
  2. This Alphabet adds a bit more style to the ‘straight letter’ style above. You can use this out for that to experiment with style. Remember the better you understand the construction of a letter the easier it will be to style it.

  3. For review, how to make a letter…

    and, drop shadows…Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 3.13.12 PM

Portfolio advice

I was poking around looking for some website inspiration and came across ‘design portfolio packs punch‘. I just wanted to add a few things… Like in the ‘Select your projects’ and ‘Look to the future’ part it talks about picking Items to show in your portfolio. I would encourage you to focus on picking projects you enjoyed working on. Most likely will want to work on more of them in the future. If you offer up the one’s that match your prospective clients, or that seem to be the shiniest you might find yourself doing work, rather than enjoying your work. That could lead to a portfolio full of stuff you don’t enjoy ( yuck ).

‘Demonstrate critical thinking’ and ‘Use context’ areas are about your relationship to the project. How and why did you ‘grid’, ‘responsive’, or ‘interaction’. Most projects aren’t done in a vacuum and I would encourage you to touch on the collaborative effort that went into those projects. Highlight how well you work with others. If you have good interaction with teams and/or clients your future clients will want that goodness.

I have mixed feelings about the ‘Choose the right platform’ idea. I encourage you to explore a bit and see what works for you. I am old enough to remember when portfolios had to be mail out with return postage. Some of the packages that came in where as creative as the work inside. That is rarely the rule but a pleasant surprise when it did happen. There is no reason not to have a ‘safe’ portfolio and something more ‘exploratory’ The web has shifted the ‘barrier to entry’ in your favor.

Miguel!

I have an artist I would like to tell you about Miguel Ovalle, the website is Dizmology.com. We have been friends his since 1993 when I met him in miami. In 1994 he showed up to school in a homemade mask. It was made out of matte board, tape and glue and styled like a  power rangers helmet. I could not fathom at that time how he did it and found myself unable to think of anything else, I was making masks that weekend. He is still sculpting, painting and making amazing things. This is a solo project he is working on called ‘Encryption‘ and it is at the SuperChief Gallery the opening is February 5th 2015 at 6 – 11pm. He will be showing a large installation and have prints and some originals (limited) available for sale. More on his FaceBook page, and Twiiter feed

Miguel preparing for the installation. Super matte black to start.

The transformation starts to take place, Miguel applies flat yellows and reds.IMG_1556

When the sculpture is placed, floating, on top the installation is only half done.

Here is some video of the project… You can hear the reaction to the lights, I wish I could see this thing in person!

Deer In The House, next to cardboard city.

drawing pen and ink deer in a living room, with pink clouds coming from it's humps.

Doodling while eating my noodling. More from the sketchbook, I have had little time to work on paintings but that is because my studio is in a state of neglect becoming the dumping ground for lots of great ideas that need to be worked on.

The show, shop.

Something Happened.
Alex’s works for this show are slice of a complex and vibrant moment inside of what is often a mundane piece of reality.. Each piece is an effort to extract a cross-section from a commonplace experiences and show their wonder. His theme, “Something happened”, is an effort to illustrate the idea that we are all part of a bigger stories. Each piece is a slice out of these moments, moments we all share.

In the end I made 16, 5×7 collages. They are a fractured series of vignettes. I start by creating geometric patterns onto a 5×7 piece of paper, this serves as the foundation for the college. The collage is made up of colored paper and Ink layered between matte media. I cut small shapes, hands, heads, jaws, teeth, hair and beards out of colored paper. I spend a few days making patterns, and pieces, like stage settings. The narratives start to manifest at this point and decisions are made. Pieces are mounted and drawing embellishes are added between the layers of matte media. Some where before the final coat I attach it to a block of birch wood. The materials are simple and  I enjoy the process of building them up to create an effect of depth and atmosphere.

No.5 of 16, “Remember Me as I Was”. This illustrates the moment my dog first saw me after I shaved off my beard. Stepping into the kitchen, clean shaven and smelling like product, I startled her. She, for a moment, did not know who I was and readied herself for trouble.

‘Paper 53’ has new tools and I think I like them.

If you draw but don’t do it in a computer (photoshop, illustrator, and more) you are going to enjoy Paper 53, it’s on the iPad. They have just released some new brushes and I am liking the roller (fill tool). Now some self promotion… look what i did with it. If you are inclined Please! add your drawing to the comments as I would love to see them!

Shark and submarine, 2015, fun with letters.

 Block head, 2015. Silly.

letters painted with watercolorMmmm the body is magic, 2015. I plan on exploring this more.

letters that look like a face.Now with teeth, 2015. Squishy, nice try more work to do.

green person moving across letters

Green breakthrough, 2015. Watercolor pen and fun, little dude pushing green letters.

So I will be posting more often, as a catalyst to creating more work.

Keeping me on my toes. Paint, publish, repeat!
