Update: Phantasm an Book Cover Gig

Hello! So its been a while, I know. So, some things I've been up to: I did a poster for a screening of the movie Phantasm, and currently I am working on a book cover gig, both posted respectively. I'm pretty excited about the book cover, since its a departure from my normal sometimes disturbing subject matter, haha. The Phantasm poster was a fun experiment as well. Normally when I do digital work, I use an ink pen to draw out my lines. For this one, I knew I wanted a lot of solid black, so I actually used black acrylic paint. This is also the first time I used filters to create different effects, like the grain in the background, and the first time I have done hand drawn text.

Something New in Progress

So I'm working on a new personal piece. It's a bit different than most of my usual personal work in that the concept is not somber. This piece is actually about opening your heart up to allow others in. Roses, especially red, are a symbol of love. The thorns indicate the dangers of love, however even though it is danerous, it is something humans strive for. The wasp in dreams symbolizes negative emotions, so in the painting it stands for releasing the negative emotions from the heart and getting rid of them, but yet the wasp is still lingering so because we often keep our hearts guarded. This is a self portrait, not something I do often, but I decided to take a risk and go with it.
