Girl and graffiti on wheels.

I have been working on lots of things, round and round. Today working on the face and mood of the next watercolor ‘girl riding in front of graffiti’. The first day sketching can be the hardest, my favorite. Getting the shape of summer, speed, joy and a tiny amount of anxiety in the smile. The first painting what a two wheeler, next a three wheeler (big wheel style). Now for a four wheeler skater. Roller skating at the end of summer, watercolor.

Sock Bush, a Doodling comic.

Sock Bush, a doodling story by Alex Feliciano. It is around sunset that always puts Larry in a sleepyhead mood. My Inspiration As the day turns and the impending closure it near. I feel the weight of another wasted day. I rush to my desk to beat the moon who will soon illuminate my failing use of time. A nearly unrealistic graffitti artist who likes to take naps and draw dreams. When I was little I thought there must be a secret book that would teach me how to be an artist. I looked for this book in the library …

Blue faced rocks

our pockets filled with rocks some of the rocks had happy faces, others cute, gross, and weird. My oldest very excitedly asked me, “Is this Graffitti?” Lol. We put them in planters, next to crosswalk buttons, in the crooks of trees and while the family was engaged in mild acts of artistic expression. Michi called me.

Rocks in Vancouver

We found a bunch of lovely rocks in Vancouver and decided to talk to them. They all had something to say, so we painted them. Drawing on rock, the group photo. The rocks where a skinny arms reach out the window and I couldn’t resist them… so it started with a flat odd rock. First rock, flat and odd. Who ever heard of a Rock fish? One eyed rock face with tongue. Rock face wearing spectacles. Blue and black rock face. I want to call this one Chunk, the rock face boy. Little Rock face, now with more tongue. Little …

Lots of cutting and glueing going on at night.

Halloween is coming and way to quickly. I’m trying to get this giant cardboard monster built and I’m going to be cutting it really close. Cardboard scales instead of fur for this Kukeri inspired monster. After the drawing and thinking and drawing. I started out with a pool noodle spine and some graduated cardboard disks. Four strings run down each side and through the disks, now I can pull on a string and the head will tilt down in that direction. Now to cut lots of scales and bits to be the covering, kinda like fur. After that, the whole …

Figure drawing with fill tool.

More than once one of the six art instructors at NWSA would say ‘Draw from life, it’s the best teacher’, yep they where/are right. Figure drawings are the thing people singles out for praise when they are look thought your sketchbook, ‘did you draw that, so talented’, nope that is just practice. So practice drawing hands and feet, draw strangers on the bus, and in bars (creepy). If you feel weird drawing strangers for free come to the figure drawing event. Alpharetta has a bimonthly figure drawing/painting event. Search FB for… ‘alpharetta figure drawing/painting group’. I will see you there. …

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.

Late night doodles

Yes, up late and making marks on paper, today I’m rocking a red sharpie, a red dry erase and a red Windsor Newton watercolor maker. Dogs and peaceshocka for pages. All tiny little thorny. Small micro dogs stitched and fat. Dogs thin tiny little… again and again. lots of red. Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace….all red then I switch to using a strange black ink brush pen, foam tip style… not my fave, it might be a bit dry.

Alpharetta Scarecrow Sketches

The Alpharetta Scarecrow Event Sketches for the AIA Scarecrow for the 2017 Scarecrow festival. Getting help from the students and parents to make this Peace Plant. Lots of sketches and pairing this with lessons going on for ‘Peace Day’ lessons. The idea of ‘Peace Day’ was a big influence on this design and the inspiration for the ‘Solar Powered Peace Plant’. The school broke up into teams to create meaningful content around the idea of Peace on Earth. 1. Collecting and preparing items to be up-cycled. 2. Writing articles about what ‘Peace’ mean to them. 3. Talking pictures and collecting …

Davie artist Alex Feliciano

Florida WestFair Murals Ran across this newspaper clipping while helping my mom move. I thought it might be fun to post. In 1996 a good friend of the family helped me get this gig painting murals. I was supposed to do a group thing where I organized my peers to come down and paint, but that didn’t happen so I painted two big ass murals myself. I’m sure made everyone involved very nervous. It was two very long weekends where I painted the best and largest sunset I had ever done and spilt a pints worth of 1Shot fire red …

I might make a Block, for printing out of this one. I have never done a multiple print block print, But… Expanding ‘There’ and ‘Their’ to Oscar (6) while in the middle of a monster doodle fight. Having a great day and doodling it in small moments of time.

Street art class makes Prints

Stickers, you wanna’ make stickers… Ok, what do you know about a printing press? So we selected some sketches, tried them out using thick makers on paper (Draw thick lines to cut thick lines). The students worked out the composition on paper then transferred it over to the rubber printing blocks. Then the scary part KNIFES you can’t make cool stuff without them. After a quick safety lesson including graphic descriptions of possible wounds I passed out the block cutting knifes, happy to report no injuries. HURRAY! They cut thin then cut thick ribbions out of the rubber block, soon they …

Below is a picture of one canvas we use in the ‘Street Art‘ class and my new wall. The bear head strapped to the top of the van, lots of cardboard and a minivan …

Update: Three woman paintings, they are working out. I have been finding moments to paint. Clem reminds me while she finds a warm spot on the floor in the studio. (Thanks Steve for the great easel). Three woman paintings, 30″ x 40″, acrylic on canvas. I have been going to a open sketch group and working up painting based on some of the sketches. Every painting is getting more pumped to get to the next one. The patterns in this one is making me happy, slowly I go. This is Clem’s favorite painting.

Street art class, on The PaintYard

The Paint Yard, wrote a nice post about the ‘Street Art Class’ The paint yard is a great place to get a variety of spray paint and supplies (fat caps, liners, specialty paints, markers and more) and they have the ‘Sugar’ from the makers of Ironlak, the paint is special. It combines water with alcohol made from sugar cane, replacing the usual petroleum-based solvents. The result is an extremely low-odor spray paint that contains fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds). It is important that students are safe and get to work with high quality materials, while learning the fundamentals of design …

Class Homework, W1

We will be trying out a new product ‘Sugar’ a cane sugar based paint. This week we will be working on letter forms and putting that onto the canvas. Below are some samples to jumpstart your imagination. We will also be working with the MTN water based, the Montana Gold acrylic, and the NEW Sugar based paint. Each alphabet is a good example of continuity within a style. Look at Line weight, color, shape and of course the flare!

Street Art class, making wrapping paper

The street art class is winding down. The five week long street art class has hit class number five and number five was so fun, it started out as a lesson on stencils and evolved into a wrapping paper making project. The session ended so well we are adding one more class (a sixth week). Great work everyone! Everyone really pushed and got their hand dirty. Detail, an orange snowflake under a gold start, hiding behind a green tree, that was run over by a candy cane. lots of stencilling action going on here. The Montana water based paints worked great, Thanks …
