This week in art

This week, I am working on Robin Mead's cool online class, Crazy Colorful Cityscapes.

In this cityscape collage, the buildings are cut from a variety of painted papers.

Although the course uses traditional methods, I had to try my hand at doing a digital cityscape.

In this week's lesson, we are using stamps to create our buildings. Here is a collection of my handmade stamps. I had a good collection already, and I carved some new ones this week.

This week in art

A couple of cool things happened this week. I created a digital drawing in honour of Charles Osgood on his last day as host of CBS Sunday Morning. Below is a screen shot from the website (mine is #5 in the slide show). Click the image to see the full slide show on the CBS website.

Also, I had my picture on the front page of the local newspaper, the St. Thomas Times-Journal, featuring the new public library kiosk at the Elgin mall.

Nevertheless, I did work on some new digital art this week...

This week in art

Three new pieces of digital art this week. First, a mandala that I created in Procreate with custom brushes I developed based on Zentangle® patterns.

Digital Mandala

This mandala started as line art in iOrnament, then layered with colour in Procreate.

Digital mandala

These sea horses were coloured digitally, based on line art by Ben Kwok.
