Sargent copy

... filling in while I'm sweating out environments for the interactive Metropolis game 2719. Will post what I can when I can on those.

This sketch was done for Janelle Monae's metropolis album, which for those unfamiliar is a concept album that features Miss Monae as an android named Cindi Mayweather. The year is 2719, and Cindi is on the run because she fell in love with a human, and this is against the rules. This is an early ideation for droid control marshalls... safe, expected, and ultimately rejected. The concept was abandoned for a while but will need overhauling for the associated online game, 2719. I will be reimagining them as creepy kids inspired by Mark Ryden's Little Boy Blue.

oak queen

small oils...

These are fun for it feels like I actually produced something when it's done outside the digital realm. I'd like to get decent at oil painting...hope to do some more of these in the next few months if freelance work subsides.

A couple more digital sketches completed in the bustling metropolis of Rochelle, Illinois.

Not quite sure where this blog stuff will go, but I thought it'd be a great way to share a hodgepodge of work while
I construct a (hopefully) more organized site. I'll kick this off with some semi-old work. Digital sketch from life/memory. This punga tree is a viewable through our bathroom window... usually one of the first things to see in the morning. I was struck by the way it looked in the early sunlight.
