Oregon College of Arts and Crafts

On Saturday, Molly and I went to the OCAC Nude drawing session. At first, we got lost. When we eventually found the place it was a lot different than I expected. We walked into a room with about 7 other artists there. Most of them were over the age of 40. I was not shocked by the nudity at all, which I thought I would have been. The model was a very nice lady, along with the rest of the artists there. We talked to a few of the other people during breaks and it helped a lot being able to see their drawings from life and their different styles. It was a great experience and I plan on going back!!

Much Needed Inspiration

It probably really obvious by my laziness.. But I'm not too fond of my concentration. I really like exploring and trying new things in art, but I haven't been doing that with my concentration pieces lately. I found this artist named Jeremy Okai Davis, and his work is awesome. Hopefully it will provide some inspiration for me. Right now is a stressful time in my life and many things are affecting my art work (or lack of art work). But looking at Jeremy's work makes me feel good and provides me with much needed inspiration.

Fourth Piece

This piece represents how sports drinks advertisements are intended to make people feel.. fast and strong. I tried to show a lot of movement in this painting to get that point across. Sorry about the bad quality of the picture.. bad lighting

Nate Merchant

Lately I have been more distracted by my sketchbook than ever. I actually want to work in it, which is keeping me from working on my concentrations. It's worth it though because I made a cool picture of my friend nate. I know I always say this.. but I don't think I'm done with it. I might put a zebra on it somewhere :)

Judy Wise was amazing

I loved her. Her style of art was really fun to try. Here is my first attempt at painting on a transparency (it was hard to get a good picture because its so shiney). I plan on trying this again sometime soon!

Unfinished sketchbook

I think I'm going to make this into a Christmas present for someone so I thought I would tak a picture to remember it. It's unfinished right now but I like it. It's different than the stuff I normally do.

Concentration #3

Ipod Ad..
This one was a little rushed.. but I like the themes or movement in the ipod ads. They are so carefree and are intended to make people want to dance like no one is watching. I think I might redo this one later if I have time.
