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 …

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 …

‘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!

Was lucky enough to spend some time with the artist and found we had some real parallels in …

Finshed this sketch book

I wrapped up this ‘moleskin, cassette’ book, full of unlined writing/journal pages, good for markers and pens but curled a bit with watercolors. Hanging out with ‘P’. Notice the sweet adidas jacket, I will post the painting I did from this sketch later.  Clem like to lay still while she gets her portrait done. The boys watching ‘The princess bride’ with mom.

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.

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 …

A look at the save button icon (3.24 floppy disk).

The Save icon and what it means. I have mixed feelings about whether to use an icon or a button with the word “save” on it. I didn’t think about touching this issue in a meaning full way until I read this article from PJ Onori on Branch.com. On one hand you have the word “save” and you can change it for different nuances. Like “archive”, “done”, “save draft”, “post” and more. The words are nice and clear. I only down side is having to translate them for international use. The 3.5 floppy disk has been the standard icon for a long time.  To be obtuse… “Save …

The Feliciano brothers make monsters.

Afternoon project with TATA: On a rainy afternoon they make monsters out of play-dough and colored toothpicks. The stories they come up about them are awesome I wished I had written it down. The monsters have been living on a “drying” shelf for months and I was going to toss them out during a “people are coming over” cleaning, but I stopped and took some pictures first. I hope the boys, in time, learn to forgive me for tossing them out. 😉 Monster 001: Monster 002: Monster 003:

Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge!

Found this Today via http://thecardboardcollective.com/….. Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge!  Their Mission? to inspire the making of awesome handmade cardboard costumes. They have decided that this year they wanted to adopt a non-commercial, non-competitive approach (less contest, more spirit tunnel) AND  to make the event more kid-centered(it’s such a valuable design opportunity for kids.) also wanted encourage adults, who maybe don’t own a sewing machine, or don’t think of themselves as “creative” to branch out and try dabbling in cardboard. more at… http://thecardboardcollective.com/

Flat vs Skeuomorphism, and good design.

Hola, So I have been advising clients away from skeuomorphism in thier designs. You may ask, “Why would you do that, skeuomorphism is dope.” and your right it is cool, but when we go to production the tangental aspect is quickly overshadowed by business needs and dynamic integration quickly blows up budgets. It looks great in the comp, but many times ends up getting scrapped in production. I love design for design sake, (it’s called art) and in time skeuomorphism design will settle into a nice place so will “flat”. “Flat” for now, will be the new rounded corner. It …
