CCAD Alumni Excellence Award project

This summer I was asked by the Institutional Advancement team at Columbus College of Art & Design if I was interested in producing 4 prints that were going to be given to this year's CCAD Alumni Excellence Awards recipients. I felt honored to be a part of this project. I decided to use the big ART sign on campus as my subject for all 4 images. These are all salt prints on Arches watercolor paper.

This is print #1. 

Print #2.

Print #3.

Print #4.



Vanitas 12 started (10-14-2017)

I started a new piece: Vanitas 12 a few days ago. This is going to be another graphite drawing on Bristol board. The subject is my model McLane and an empty shell of cicada. I collected a dozen cicada shells back in Japan this summer. They were generally larger than their American counterparts and their color is darker and really shiny. Very beautiful, so I decided to use them for my art work. I collaged 3 different images together in Photoshop to create this composition. So far I've finished general shading with H pencils and am ready to move on to darker leads.

Japanese painter Ryohei Koiso (小磯良平 1903~1988)

Ryohei Koiso is my all time favorite Japanese painter. The brush works, use of colors, compositions, and psychological environments he creates are as exquisite as those of Vermeer's in my opinion. I dream about being able to produce art as fine as his one day...


2nd painting at OAL

I just finished my 2nd painting from Ohio Art League Thursday night open figure painting sessions. I worked on this piece over the past 4 weeks and I am pretty happy with the result. I had fun working with my fellow artists this summer.
