I recently got the opportunity to make this season’s South Pasadena Arts Crawl poster! I love that the posters are always done by local artists, and a great variety of art is always featured. After a little brainstorming back and forth with the art director, we hit upon this idea- something that celebrates women’s history month, an exciting nighttime procession, and, my personal favorite bit, a nod to the Olympic Games white tiger mascot. Each element was painted separately in black and white ink, then put together and colored in Photoshop. It’s like the next evolution of the process I…
I’m not sure if I’ve done any painting quite as relaxing to do as these goldfish. I’m going to miss painting them, but I also feel myself getting anxious for the next phase of this project. And to also get some color in my life instead of all of this black and white!
Just another fish. I feel like I’m hopefully getting to the end of the painting stage for this project, but you never know. There’s a lot more to do, but I’m excited about where it’s going. I have big plans for all these fish!
I probably couldn’t have picked a better color to watch dry though! I love seeing the fiery, bright red slowly transform into it’s less vibrant, but still rich clay-red form.
Scale by scale, fin by fin….
The first wash is down…
Just a few more touches until he’s complete.
