"Vanitas 15" update (07-18-2018)

"Vanitas 15" is very close to the finished stage. I just need to fine tune a few things here and there. I decided to drastically darken the background by rubbing graphite powder all over it in order to heighten the contrast. I was not 100% sure about it, but I feel it was a right decision after all. It took me a while to find a right object to go with this drawing. The idea of using a feather came to me a few days ago and it just felt right, so I went with it.

One Eight Six Magazine

This past spring, Columbus College of Art & Design did a photo shoot of me working in the photo lab making VanDyke Brown prints on glass. And that turned into a little photo essay in a school publication "One Eight Six" that I just got in the mail. Below are the spreads. The cover photo was by our former photo student and very talented Kelsey McClellan.

The Hand Magazine #21

2 pieces of mine were featured in the latest issue of "The Hand" Magazine. This was the first time I submitted any work to this publication. I am glad I did. In the same issue I see some familiar artists' works I have always admired.

Vanitas 15 work in progress (07-12-2018)

Last week I started a new Vanitas drawing. This is #15. All in graphite. I have not completely figured out all the visual elements yet and am still looking for a right object to place in this image.

Inside & Out: Vanitas show

I am going to be a part of a group show by Ohio Art League called, "Inside & Out: Vanitas" at Griffin Gallery, Gahanna, OH. When they announced this juried show, I thought it was just perfect to show my Vanitas pieces. So I entered and got 2 pieces accepted. Below are those pieces and the DM they designed using an image of one of my pieces.
