Obama Series

Barack Obama
Collage on mat board

Due to a request, I've decided to work on a few Obama portraits. This one is the first that's been completed in the series--and it's a mini portrait. I think I'll make the other ones around the same size.

Seasons Series: Winter Coffee

"Winter Coffee"
Coated paper on mat board

I'm taking a night class in graphic design and for our next class, our assignment is to create four images that reflect the four seasons based on color scheme and/or subject matter. I decided to do coffee and tea for my series. We have to use color packets of coated paper for the project, so I'm in my comfort zone since the project involves collaging, however, I'm not accustomed to using plain paper. This piece is the first one I completed in the series--the cool colors and the steam represent the coldness of winter.

Progress Picture

I did some blocking-in with color on a sketch I did a few days ago. I'll also try to look through my photographs tonight to find anything that might have some potential with being turned into a future collage.

A Horse, Of Course

Collage on mat board

Here's a quick collage I did today. I'm going to get started on something else as well, and hopefully I'll be able to post more this week. Things have been extremely busy for me, so I'll try my best to work on more artwork.
