Juxtapoz!

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 20, 2012, 10:37 PM
I was featured on the Juxtapoz website!  Can't express how happy that makes me.  There are all sorts of things that I want to say but I'm just going sit here and be excited.  www.juxtapoz.com/Illustration/…

Furthermore:  

I will be showing my art at the March 22nd "RAW: natural born artists" STIMULUS showcase. Please check out their website and if it seems like something you would be interested in attending (21 and over only, sorry), buy a ticket under my name. You'd be doing me a huge favor and it would be nice to see familiar faces as I will likely be a nervous wreck.  This is actually my first time showing my stuff publicly.  Please buy tickets tonight or tomorrow or else it will cost $15 at the door.

Hey, dude, have you ever thought of doing "Speed drawing" footage of your work in progress? It would be great to see (I have never really been able to work out how you do the highlights in you work). Here is an example of what I mean - [link]

hey sorry for taking awhile to get back to you but I'm stuck doing everything on my phone for now

I have thought about doing something like that I just don't have the means for that right now. as for highlights, I do them with a Bic whiteout pen and sometimes I color into those highlights.

Your artwork, as the kids say, "goes too hard!!" Literally, I'm not sure I can handle it.

Thanks! That's nice to hear. It seems like people aren't digging it as much, but that's okay. It's been fun figuring it out.

Im impressed by your new work. I have no idea how you get such rich colours and smooth transitions with marker pens.

Thank you! It's mostly just using different Sharpies. I'm going to try and start mixing gouache and water color in there too and see what happens.
