Versus Exhibit // Bog Man

Quick post here guys, I'm supposed to be working!

Bog Man, pencil, powdered graphite, digital.

This was something that I did for a local gallery show put together by Sean Andrew Murray of Big Huge Games fame. The concept was simply "Vs." I went through several more action-packed pieces, some of which came awfully close to final drawings, but in the end I wanted to do something more simple and, in the end, it turned out as well as I could have hoped.

I've been thinking about Ireland recently, and I'm thinking of getting a little thing of peat moss to tend. Those little flowers are really pretty. They find all sorts of bodies in peat bogs, you know.

I also wanted to go back to a muted color scheme having just done all of those really vibrant book pieces (previous post). I'm much more comfortable with colors like this, but I love both.

I'm really trying to get some new work done in this method to unify my portfolio. Expect updates!

If you're in Baltimore or around it at all, you should come to the opening of the Versus show. Lots of great people have done great work for it, including a lot of my drinking buddies). It opens next Friday at the Windup Space (12 North Ave.). It's going to be sweet. You'll get to see this piece at its tremendous native size (27.75" x 19.75").

Thanks for all those great comments on the last post! Keep 'em coming!

Hey guys, I'm graduating. Isn't that sweet? Sweet but weird and scary.

This was the last project (aside from some academic stuff) that I did for my whole college life. Thanks for hanging on these last couple years. I'm going to try and keep up the work flow as much as I possibly can (I'll be doing one or two more pieces before the month is out, that I know for sure), so stay tuned. It should get interesting.

I don't have much to say about these things. I've been looking at them for so long now, I'm just kind of tired. I can say I set out to do something colorful (especially after my largely black and white work last semester) and weird. Expect to see me drawing more pigs soon. They are crazy fun.
