Hey all, just a quick post to share my first day involving my internship under Peter Krebs who's currently working as a photographer here in Charlottesville, and is working on a large series (thus needing me to intern) involving the community and the people in it. I don't have a descriptive grasp on it, but I'm looking forward to helping him out! I'll be doing business type stuff for McGuffey Art Center like data entry and helping with exhibits as well as work Bridge Gallery, the gallery Peter will be showing his work.

Another treat to my soul, Peter introduced me to another studio artist at McGuffey, Arnaud Boudoiron, a graphic artist from France who was kind enough to let us take a peak at some of his work. Although the image below isn't the one I saw, it's the same character, I think he's called Steel Man, sorta riding off of you know who but from what I'm told the story isn't as super-hero-centric. His website is in French, but the joy of art is that it transcends language and culture barriers, I hope you think so to! Please check both artists out! That's it for now, back to making my own artwork!

Hey all, a small update to show I'm trying to practice anatomy every day. First one is from life, second is from photo reference from a self-assigned editorial Illustration I'm working on.

Phantom of the Opera! and other sketches

Thanks to a good friend of mine I was able to enjoy a Saturday night performance of Phantom of the Opera by students at Albemarle High School from where I graduated almost 5 years ago :uo! Yeah there were some definite outside and inside changes, but there was enough of the old place to still make the visit nostalgic. To make a long story short, the performance was epic, though you probably wouldn't think so from looking at me because I was drawing the whole time! PO snuck up on me, and I didn't get in the drawing I wanted done today, so I decided to do it there. Since there were over 300 costumes, it was information overload, and as you can see, I hardly drew any costumes, but I drew what I could, including the musicians and audience members. The likenesses got muddled since I could hardly see what I was doing, but it was fun and definitely wore me out in a good way. I also added some sketches that I did sometime last year too, sorry for my poor layout skills. Yadda yadda! Hope you enjoy :u)
