I am venturing back into art. It’s usually a winter pastime for me on those dark nights where you need something to fill your time. But I recently got inspired watching youtube videos of other artists and figured I would start to crank out a new piece of art every week
I am currently building a portfolio of work to hold an art gallery showing in Boston in the Summer of 2015.
I am torn as to what the theme should be for the show. Until this point I have primarily drawn celebrities that people would (hopefully) instantly recognize with the exception of a few non main stream personal favorites that might not be household names.
I’m now thinking of taking a different track and starting to research, find and photograph interesting faces. My thoughts are the show could exhibit one or the other or perhaps both famous and non famous faces. Something like “Rags to Riches”
For now I’ll be working each evening to produce new work to really fill out a large portfolio, I will also need to start working in different sizes as right now I’ve been using 11″x9″ bristol board – but it would be more interesting to have a gallery showing various sizes that are much larger also.
below is the first few images that I might use – If you are reading this post later than the time of writing I have “hopefully” updated more work below.
