I am working on an idea to submit for Indianapolis' Bicentenial. As a proud Hoosier I am throwing all of my creativity into it. The only thing that's different than usual is that I am doing it entirely on the iPad from the school district that I teach in. All of the kiddos will have this next year, so I am determined to figure out all of the cool Adobe apps. The bicentennial design is being drawn on Adobe Draw.
What a babe. I've got two other digital drawing projects to do before I get back to Theorum. That is the painting that consists of six panels, also called a hexaptych.
I will be creating it's own page soon. The first of the 6 panels (in process) is below.
I missed some of my favorite students graduation parties. My creativity was spurred by guilt! I used Adobe Sketch to make a card for the kiddos. It is a super fun drawing app. Definitely play with wet on wet washes and watch your drawings come to life with a playback of the entire thing! Very cool, oh, and free. Nice.
I finally got a good picture of Consumption at Garfield Park Art Center. Nike will be there for an extended time as well.
Back to arting, g'night!
Summer is great for my (and my dog's) favorite pastime, trail running. It has nothing to do with art really, but since I don't have much to update in that way, this will do.
One of my former students just graduated from college. Her college subscribed her to ArtForum, which she didn't want. Now I get a year's worth of it. Woohoo, teacher appreciation!
Now, time to get back to wrapping up Typical Whorl.
Consumption will stay up for the rest of the summer for an extended viewing period. This is awesome news since I wasn't sure how people would react to it.
I still haven't gotten a good picture of it in situ, so hopefully I will get one this week to post next Saturday.
Typical Whorl is almost finished, I'm just working on adding details and refining areas.
Oh, and I got my PUP (People for Urban Progress) bag this week! It's made from a vinyl banner print off my painting that I made for the Indy 500 last year. There are more bags made from my at at Silver in the City in Indianapolis.
Back to painting! G'night!
