Making a Menger sponge in stained glass

I spent the last six weeks taking a stained glass course from a local artist (Vavroch Glass Studio) and the culmination of that is a 15"x15" stained glass Menger sponge rendering that I'm absolutely delighted with. This is a writeup with pictures of the whole process from conception to completion.

Red Square, watercolor and pencil on paper, 6"x6" 12/15/18

This is a collection of 46 watercolor paintings, all different, made in sequence on the days of December 16th and 17th, 2018, as an exploration of some ideas about both serial art and the authority and reliability of an artist's description of their own work and working processes.

Art by Josh Millard

I've been painting a lot lately, exploring in particular mathematical themes and especially variations on the Menger sponge. I'm proud of the progress I've made, and have built a simple site to show off my finished work: Art by Josh Millard.

I've also been writing about art process stuff on my blog, e.g. a step-by-step document of the execution of yesterday's new painting, Five Concentric Wireframe Cubes.

Bird Presidents

I am drawing all of the US presidents as birds, or maybe vice versa? Bird Presidents, in any case. I'm doing about one a day and drawing them in order.
