Internet and a Brief Change in Style

After about a month and a half, my new place in Richmond has internet. Sooooo, here is a post!

These past few month have been quite artistically diverse. At my job in Northern Virginia I have been working on the fall advertisement, and am happy to say that its finally done. I have also picked leather working back up. Its quite refreshing to be using my hands for something creative and interactive. At the end of the day, there is an immense sense of accomplishment when i look at the designs and textures stamped on a piece of leather.

Other than the advertisement and leather work, I started on a trio of inks. It is for a very large story that i have been working on in my spare time. Its has all the sweet stuff like action, romance, despair, redemption, as well as a giant serpent and a massive army of the dead. Of course these images will not capture the full scope of the story, but instead the more vital points that affected the two main characters the most .For this, I began working in a different direction. I felt that there must be as much flow through the images as possible, so the concepts became more stylistic.

"I Lace My Dreams In Silver."


" I hide My Heart In Steel"


"Our Spirits Shimmer like Gold"
This last one is not finished yet. I need to work on the small image on the left. So far there is just a sketch, and i will need to get a couple of horse references in order to finish it

These are -beautiful-. They definitely feel flowy. The story sounds like a recipe for awesome.

RE: Leatherwork - I just picked this up, recently! I inherited a huge collection of tools and then raided Tandy, and I'm practicing tooling. So I think we should have an embossing party. If my memory of that armor you made is accurate, you're kind of a badass at leatherwork.
