I have been commissioned by a friend from the coffee shop to fill his living room wall one piece at a time. When looking through the site he was a particular fan of the After the Ice Caps pieces. I was pleased to hear this as that gave me a great excuse to work with water again. So today when I was at wits end trying to deal with graduate school schtuff, I whipped out this piece. I was completely drawn in, which is great, because the work for grad school has not been doing that. I need to figure out what it is that makes that line for me. I think that the block project does have the capability of getting me excited but depending on what people say about in my online forums for school, I either ride really high on the idea or beat down on it. Currently I'm feeling a bit negative about it. But all in all, if I can just respond by doing an illustrative piece that I am pleased with, I really can't complain. And now I am looking around studio at unfinished works and thinking about wrapping those up as well.
Here's the piece that I did today. What do you think?
I am excited as well for the upcoming pieces that will connect to this one. It is an old concept that I worked with several years back, but one which I never developed to complete fruition, so this should be pretty good.
For now, I am pleased. I need to do more of this to keep me happy. The seriousness that they push at school seems so oppressive, and I am a pretty cheery guy most of the time. I hope you all have a great day! Do something that makes you feel awesome, as a favor, for me.
