Art Overload

The past few days has been hectic, as I went back to the society for a casual class trip and ended up spending the day in NYC waiting for discussions on the Air Force Art Program. The program itself is interesting because it provides willing artists research material (and food) for a specified amount of time as they join with the air force training exercises. The only thing asked of the artist is that they make an illustration/painting of something they saw when they get back.

Anyway, the society is finishing up their air force art show this weekend, I believe sunday afternoon is the ending. I suggest that anyone interested in the illustration process (Research, developing ideas, creating an image representing something in their own way) or any fans of planes in general check this show out while you can.

Shocking even myself, I click "new post" and have a post which I can consider relevant...

I went to the city yesterday for the show "Blow Up" located at the Society of Illustrators. It was a great talk by a combination of three major illustrators: Tomer Hanuka, Yuko Shimizu, and Sam Weber. Details can be read HERE. They talked about their processes and answered questions from the audience. I suggest seeing the show itself as the works are amazing even without the stories behind them.

In other news....I continue my paintings....

Something tells me I need to work with a new color palette...
