Robur And The Escape To The Eyrie


(click to bigefy)

I'm somewhat behind on posting the work that I have been doing amidst my 6 month mentorship program with Giuseppe Castellano, as I have been gratefully busy as of late. This is the second drawing done involving scenes from the Jules Verne book, Master of the World. It has been challenging to not only compose these scenes, but to design the characters, the vehicle, the settings, etc. Guiseppe is one hell of an art director and his insights have been a boon for me. If you are not familiar with Guiseppe and the Illustration Dept., one would do well to check out the forum, the classes, the bookshop and the podcast.

Yves Tanguy Sketch


I've been super busy as of late and will have much to show, hopefully soon. In the meantime, I couldn't resist doing a sketch of my 2nd favorite surrealist, Yves Tanguy. Dali, owed a lot of his early ideas to this guy, this Tanguy. His wife, Kay Sage, was quite a surrealist painter, as well. Maybe better. Further examinations of her works are a definite must.

Inktober Day 28: Float


Today's official word prompt, which is 'Float,' brought to mind a six grade musical number that we would sing at times. It went something like this:

Gobs and gobs of grimy, greasy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Prehistoric piggy feet
French fried eyeballs
swimming in a bowl of blood
And you forgot your spoooooon...
But, we have straaaaaws...

The things I remember. This eyeball isn't French-fried, though.
