I didn't have a camera in my car so I had t rely on memory. Words nor my paintingcannot describe how beautiful the light was in person. I can only hope this will capture some of the essence of what I saw while driving. Enjoy.
It was devastating to have heard that Norm Schureman passed away this weekend. I had the honor of having him for an instructor at Art Center for Vis Comm 6. He was a great instructor and I will always remember him for checking up on me with a few phone calls when my mother was gravely ill during my last term at ACCD. He will always be remembered in my heart as a kind man and a great instructor and designer. My heart goes out to his family. Rest in peace my friend.
Here is an image I started before going back to the workforce recently. I took an old landscape painting and tried to interpret what could come out of it. I like to do this every now and then and see where I can take with it. In this case, I didn't manipulate it as much, but just went with it. I actually liked the colors so I used it as a palette to start not so much the shapes as you can see.
As far as other things go, things will keep going until the end of the year so we'll see how it goes.
Happy New Year folks! Things are starting to settle down here back in the Bay Area after the move. Moving is never fun and it's chaotic.
A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to be asked to do a workshop on ImagineFX Issue 52 which just came out. I've been a huge fan of this magazine since the very first issue and it was a huge treat to contribute something back. If you see this on the shelf, please check it out. Here's an early b/w thumbnail of the final painting featured in the magazine. Cheers!
