Check out various stages of my new interactive sculpture tentatively titled "In The Dark." It's a mixed media piece that uses 3P Quick Cure Clay, glow powder, glass, water, algae, and black lights. It's approximately 5x14x5". These photos are from fairly early in the sculpture's life, and I hope the algae continues to grow thicker as time goes on. [more inside]
PlanetSlade is (somewhat belatedly) celebrating its 5th birthday with a big new piece off artwork from Cerebus's Gerhard. The piece - which I commissioned a couple of months ago - builds references to 33 PlanetSlade essays into a single giant composition, and also sneaks in a "Where's Wally" style appearance for Cerebus himself. There's a roaming zoom function to let you scrutinise the art close-up, an enlargeable scan of it in its pencils stage and Gerhard's own animated GIF showing the inking process stage-by-stage. I've added a short essay explaining the genesis of the project and letting people follow it through from conception to finished art. [more inside]
My art portfolio website is now using squarespace software and it's finally mobile friendly! I also changed the overall look, added tons of title/dimension/date information, and edited the navigation bar down for a more minimal and clean atmosphere. [more inside]
I am an artist collaborating with a chemistry professor to create new polymer media for artists. I just finished two demo videos that highlight the unique properties and versatility of the media we've developed. The first is also linked in the title and covers the clay and the second covers the textural mediums.
I make artwork about the natural world; my most recent involves watercolor drawings of anole lizards and interactive live plant pedestals. I also have series of roadkill and dodo oil pastel drawings. As a bonus, I uploaded videos of students poking at the plants in the interactive pieces and saying things like, "I think we should light them on fire." And then doing so.
I just finished a freehand ink pen drawing on a 70x100cm paper. I've been working on it for 5 weeks, 143 hours in total.
This is an online effort to catalog the last artworks made by artists before they die.
I've always been fascinated by objects that have journeyed through time and the scars, patinas and even energies they appear to have acquired. At first I started collecting them, and then, as I would notice certain juxtapositions, I started combining them into assemblage artworks. I recently got my first art show of these artworks, and I'm proud to show them off here! (and now you can see where my nickname, extrabox comes from!)
