..another WIP spawned from making marks and throwing turp. - Hylonome, 24x36" oil on canvas. Looking forward to working on this a bit more after we finish moving!! The boxes are taking over the studio at the moment...

I could seriously just make marks and throw and drip turp all day. It's one of my favorite things to do. Sometimes I get figures, and sometimes I get sort of SciFi/fantasy type landscapes. Or sometimes they're just marks. Love doing them. And I have a ton of these! I've usually just called them starts or WIPs. I put them aside with the intention to keep working on them. But sometimes I think..maybe they are just finished. There's a life to them this way that might just be best kept in this state.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at Comic Con! I had a great time, and enjoyed speaking to so many people about our new studio and getting classes going again. The enthusiasm and excitement about our new space is much appreciated! I had a lot of fun sketching and painting with everyone in the booth, seeing friends, meeting new people, and checking out all the cosplay. I come away inspired by all the amazing talent that surrounded me, and motivated by all the great conversations I had with so many awesome people!

Of the many WIPs I've got, this one is speaking the loudest and wants to be on the easel at the moment.

This sketch is on a 2-page spread of white pages. I made marks with my palette knife, sanded, painted, made marks, sanded, scraped, and found faces in the marks I made, and painted into them a bit more - which is generally how I work and come up with things on a blank surface.

The text on the left page is text from what was already on the page, and I just painted over the rest of the paragraph. I've been discovering and composing new phrases and sentences that really are very different from what the entirety of the paragraph is about, and end up influencing what happens in the sketch as well.
