    what is everyone making?

    Hooray new art thread.

    Love those colours and textures Imaginary.

    I'm currently planning and thumbnailing a new comic. It's going to be my longest one yet, probably 14 or 16 pages(oh yes its the new Habibi!). My hands have been better recently so hopefully they can stand up to it.

    Other than that I fancied doing a big watercolour illustration for fun and for my new portfolio site.

    @Amalgamated Biscuit - that's some awesome stuff. I like the lighting on that piece above. I am thinking about getting back into watercolors.

    @Imaginary Well done! I would have lost my mind during all of those little concentric circles.

    @Amalgamated Great sense of light!

    I have been busy....

    A Rockwell parody...

    Some Ghibli stuff....

    You guys are making this summer very organic.

    Love the earth tones and warmth.

    Great foliage.

    jesserubenfeld- Love those Miyazaki pieces, especially the detail on the Kiki's Delivery Service one.
    Jack Crowder - Love the line work on that bottom one. Also the colors on the other two, they really pop.

    Someone photographed me painting out on Sherbourne St last week and made a Reddit thread about it:

    New charcoal drawing I've just finished - probably the largest I've attempted at 29¾? × 22½? (760mm × 565mm).

    I took part in this week's art assignment and made a video-based thing:

    Lazarus Corp -- That's pretty awesome! I love the little detail of the arm wrapping extending just onto the border.
  11.  (11390.14)
    Warped Savant - thank you! Extending the arm wrapping just that little bit beyond the border stopped the whole image feeling a bit too flat. :)

    Photographed a bunch of my (mostly) recent stuff outside in natural light this month. You've seen a couple of them before, but this is the first time I've managed to photograph them glare-free.

    "Lamia" (c) me 2014. Beer and acrylic paint on 48"x48" masonite. Portrait of my buddy Oldhat, who kindly loaned me one of her photos as fodder.


    "Night Soccer" (c) me 2014. Acrylics on 36"x48" canvas. Memories of Tuesday night soccer training at Curtis Oval in Australia.

    Night Soccer

    "Blue House" (c) me 2014. Acrylics on 36"x48" canvas. Big blue boarding house on Huntley Street, Toronto, behind the Rogers building. I think the architectural style is Second Empire.

    Blue House

    "Toronto With Subway Spiders" (c) me 2013. Acrylics on 36"x24" canvas. About 2,000 hours of obsessive pointillism over a period of three years.

    @Greasemonkey - Those are all great! Love the texture and motion in night soccer, makes it come to life. Blue house looks Wes Andersony to me for some reason

    Could not help myself....

    @Imaginarypeople: Thanks! Not the first time someone's made the Wes Anderson comparison; probably because Mr Anderson and I are both obsessive about fine detail and composition.

    @Greasemonkey - you also both use bright vibrant colors
