Post-Renegade, Pre-50/50

Posted in animals, Art with tags , , , , , , , on September 18, 2010 by scratchyb

I got a better picture of that Boaraffe I posted a few weeks ago.

Now that Renegade is done with, I’m preparing for 50/50 Pilsen, an arts and crafts event planned by Mandy and two of her friends as a way to explore the intersections between art and craft. The first weekend of October, there will be a craft fair, the next weekend, an art exhibit which will continue for the rest of the month, on weekends and by appointment.


The Final Creature from the Arboretarium

That’s it, this is the last one.  Here’s a little preview, a better shot will come later, as I get time.  Meanwhile, back to the grindstone preparing for Renegade.

Constructor Aftermath

Posted in animals, Art, Hybrids with tags , , , on June 7, 2010 by scratchyb

For anyone who is curious, two of the new hybrid animals I had on display at Constructor are now posted on my Etsy store: the Tarsnail and the Seacock.

I’ll be posting the Mousegonfly and a couple of other new pieces later on this week.

Hybrids are back

Posted in animals, Hybrids, Technique with tags , , , , , , on June 2, 2010 by scratchyb

I’ve returned to the Hybrid series, officially titled “Creatures of the Arbortarium” (that’s an imaginary word, not a mispelling-an asylum for mad trees) for one last time.  While, I notice that my art has often had some kind of hybrid creature lurking in the foreground or background, I would like to get away from these plaques in favor of some other ideas that I’ve been itching to explore.   One major difference between the current animals and my previous ones is that, rather than just working with pen and ink and watercolor pencil, I’ve begun burning the animals with a rudimentary woodburning pen.  Here’s a couple I have so far.
