My latest digital painting was based off the book Memoirs of a Geisha. The setting takes place inside of a tea house. I still have a couple of things I want to do to finish it but it is almost there. 

Spring Break

Over the last few weeks I have been having a lot of fun sketching on post it notes. It is a really nice size to just make lines and small images. The post it notes inspired me to create a small series of paintings entitled "frosho"

The paintings are based of types of people who would haveAfros. I thought about using icon people such as Richard Simmons but it just seemed to corny. The painting of the boy with the lady bug is based off of my dad. During break I found a picture of my dad from the 70s. He was a proud white man with an Afro with bell bottoms and aVolkswagen beetle covered in ladybugs. 


I did this painting a couple of weeks ago. I painted out of frustration because I am getting a little stressed out with the way my work has been evolving. I am trying to do work with a more limited and less saturated color pallet.
