I worked a little more on one of the drawings I posted previously. I took charcoal and added texture to the drawing. I emphasized contour line in it with a Japanese calligraphy pen (it's like a fountain pen except it has a true brush for the nib).

Dia de los Muertos 2

I will post pictures from one of the altars at the Space 15 event. I appologize for not having the names of the alatristas and artists involved as there were few names posted...it was a very "organic" show.

If you are one of the altarista/artists please post your comments here and tell us about your work!

Dia de los Muertos

These are a few pics from the Day of the Dead show over the weekend. The "Venus at her Toilet" images are the vignette I installed. It's based on a painting of the same name by Diego Velasquez. The last one is an image of an artwork that was hanging around...

Some Projects and an Event

Here are some art projects I did this past week. I will also be posting pictures throughout the week from an art event I participated in last week for Dia de los Muertos. Since I can only post a five pics at a time I will stretch the pics out over several blog entries. This event was an exhibit of art installations and artworks in the theme of the Day of the Dead...but that will come later. Today I will post a nude drawn with charcoal, conte and grease pencil on a collage and a little book I made for my bookarts class. I will show the cover of the book, a couple of inner spreads and a distance shot of the book opened up. It's not perfect, there are bugs to be worked out, but it's not bad for my first attempt to make a 3-D book.
