Large folks entering an empty house, with a cat sitting in a chair.

15 of 100, Meeting the newest baby

“Don’t wake it”, says one to the other. They crowd around to see the newest house member. Whispering and carefully creeping into the house, not daring to attract attention. The cluster outside is whispering as they wait for their turn to get a glimpse. Tiny fur baby sleep unaware of the silent admiration swirling in and out of the house.

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.

Bear Head Is On The Move

This weekend update: I packed up the minivan with tons of painting supplies, lots of cardboard, glue guns, and two kids and headed to Sis and Moons to start an large installation (still in progress). The kids Helped me unpack boxes of paint and odds and ends, in the process earned some choice pieces of cardboard, and settled in the back to work on their totem pole (thanks Chris). 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 …

Alex Felicano in Cardboard bear costume

Bear head turns into Bear suit.

The day has come, halloween is here, and all this work is worth it. Gio has his afro cardboard frankenstein, Oscar is rocking a full cardboard Pokemon Charizard, Damien is welding a pair of custom cardboard katanas, and Alex is suited up as a cardboard bear. This is a shot of the Bear at work, before the Costume contest, second place! Don’t Shoot, I did not take the Picnic baskets and I am not a zombie.

Bear Head

Pushing hard towards halloween, flowing with Cardboard and Hot Glue, here is a picture of the Bear Head. You can check out earlier pics here. I’m happy with the head, I will be starting the suit next. Worried about the paint job, cardboard nude or custom paintjob? After halloween I will get back to the Clem Heads. Adding lots of detail, looking for the feeling of fur. I’ve never built a bear head before. but i have always wanted to build a large animal costume. Alex Feliciano, ” I might make it in time for halloween”.  We will see. I really …

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, …

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. This was a short pose, I felt like warming up with hands. …

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

‘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! Car trip from Atlanta to Los Angeles. My old neighborhood. … and you can check them out here: https://www.fiftythree.com/paper

Working on the dog heads, what to do? I will attempt to make all them super! I grabbed three of the seven heads to take to The Sis & Moon studio.   These to are  just getting started.   I found lots of air holes, I will patch and paint. It was a good test and will need some more work. Thanks Murph for the “One Shot” I will return them shortly!

Friday sketchbook review

Hola, I have been hard at work making paintings for the Hive (LA), and getting The Sis & Moon Studio looking good.

I also have just started a new sketchbook, you will see the work next friday from that one, It’s a Moleskine and I look forward to wrecking it. Love, a “P” meets …

Working on new Dog Head, update.

I am very  happy with the silicone mold so far, I have been able to make seven heads. Next up…  painting. A closed mold is easier to spin around, learned that the hard/messy way. I wrapped a piece of cling wrap around a scrap of cardboard, silicone and cling wrap make a decent seal. Yes that is “pink lacy” elastic, it’s what I had on hand. I have a big roll of it, don’t ask. Now for some trimming and sanding, then Paint! super excited!!!!  

Working on new Dog Head, update.

With the outer shell done (plaster around pink silicone) I made the first casting. The gary head is the plastic casting (copy), the white one is the original sculpted (modeling clay) head, and the pink is the silicone negative. This is my first pour, I need to practice, a few thin spots and air bubbles. Clem was happy with the likeness. A little vanilla sky, Clem style.

Working on new Dog Head, update.

Starting the mold (mould) from the sculpture. Finished the left eye and nose, then started the mould process. I was nervous at first, I always thought that the original sculpture would be trash if you didn’t make the mould just right (that’s for plaster moulds), but after the first layer was dry I was hooked. I think (cross fingers) that this will be a good first test and I can then start scaling up. First pour of silicone I will let it cure overnight and apply another coat of smooth-on 5050 in the morning. So far easy to work with and …

New installation at Sis&Moon

Spicing up the gallery. I am moving to a new space, same building, and thought it would be worth a saturday. I thought about it for a minute and started with brown butcher paper for visual structure. Then an aqua and beige landscape under it, with a little white line for more structure.   Then some paintings on top.

Update, “The lines Attack” show at the Hive, LA

Working and getting excited about this new, in-progress, body of work (5×7 collage drawings, done with paper, paint and ink.) will be shown at the Hive Gallery in May for “The Lines Attack” show. I have been attempting to illustrate a narrative that until now only lived in my sketchbooks, it’s a fractured series of vignettes that record my musings as I commute around the planet. Some of which, “A study on animal development in responds to auto injuries (in fast forward)”, and A rumination on advances in facial hair despite contrary marketing. 16, 5×7 inch paper drawings, Alex Feliciano …
