Studio Time Machine

I was going through some old files and found these photos of my first studio on the second floor at the Bakehouse Arts Complex.  These photos were taken June 28th, 2009.  After a few months (two I think) I moved down to the first floor.

December 4th, 2012 – Art Basel Miami day 1

It would be an understatement to say that the amount and quality of the street art in Wynwood has increased dramatically since last year.  There needs to be a stronger word. Hyper-dramatically?  Anyways, the photos below are just a few snaps I took while walking around the neighborhood after I finished hanging my work at GAB studio.  I will post pictures of the gallery once it is open but for now just feast your eyes on this small sampling of outdoor art I saw during a short walk today.  …

New Prints!

I made some new prints this week, just in time for the holiday season.  If you need a special and unique gift for a special and unique person please consider supporting an independent artist by purchasing one on my available prints page.  The prints are ready to go and will start shipping on Monday, November 26.  These prints are an extremely limited edition of 14 variations.  There are 5 pairs of prints in the same color combination and 4 with unique color variations.  …

Overlay

Experiments with the new markers continue.  The drawings here were done with the “transformer marker” which has an interchangeable head for nibs of different size.  These were made with the 15mm nib.  The ink is Liquitex Acrylic Ink, which I have been using not so much because I like it but because it is available at a local store.  The ink is not bad, but it does not have some of the qualities I like in other inks.  Drying speed is not something that I had thought would be important but I have found that the faster drying inks have a more even color.  …

Some large drawings

I have been having some fun with the Masterpiece 60mm marker.  I quickly exhausted the speedflow black ink it came with.  This ink has the best effect through a new nib.  I was unable to get this quality of streaking with any of the other inks. All of the following drawings are 18″x24″ in size.

Seriously though, look at these streaks:

Then I experimented with the purple One4All ink.  Straight out of the bottle it is a little too thick to flow easily in this pen.  …
