post eight

Awhile ago i was givin the assignment to do a memorial piece for a family friend of mine. About two months ago her son, Staten died in a car accident and in memory i did a poster for her of her son.
staten everhart
This peice was done in adobe illustrator with the help of a Bamboo Wacom tablet and printed 36 x 24in. I refrenced a photo of Staten for the face and pose, the shirt and type were all hand done. The lyrics to "In My Life" by the beatles is running behind him.
Seeing it framed was something new for my work. I rarely ever see my own work framed, seeing as if i hadle my own work i choose to keep it as far from my own eyes as possible. It was nice seeing this one though, especially knowing it was going to someone who would really understand it and have a connection with it.
This was also done knowing that within a few days ALOT of people would be seeing it for chirstmas parties and what-not.
With that in mind this came along.
business card
this is my make-shift business card. As mentioned above, knowing my work was going to be in the public eye i figured i'd submerse myself in the party prepared. If the poster caught anyones eye i could at least leave them with something. This was also done in illustrator with a photo refrence.

Post Seven

One update today.
Owl People
this is a drawing i did for my figure drawing class. We got a list of seemingly nonsensical/ nonsequitar phrases and we had to pick one and draw it. Some of the phrases were Blue and Greasy, devil skinner, free range woman, every other hung up person, owl people, shadow man, ect. I choose Owl People.
My refrence photo was of my uncle and his family that i posed how i wanted them to be. It measures 14 in x 18 in. This was done in 2B graphite, ebony graphite, white chalk, and india ink.

Post Six

Updated today is the finished skateboard i did for my illustration class. As stated a few posts back, the assignment was to design a deck based off of a classical novel. Mine was 20,000 leagues under the sea.
Finished board
I appologize for the size and kinda wonky formating on it, the long shot was the only wa to show the details in it.
This was done entirely in acylic paint with a clear coat of spray polyeurothane. I couldnt get a good shot of it without having that awful glare along the top of it.
A more in depth description is in Post four i think if you want to know more about it.
