I have an adventure planned. All I'll say for now is it's a mural for charity in another country. Very exciting! As a young guy in college I had the attitude that an artist should be open to all possibilities to experience life. My art was only part of that lie. I didn't focus on one technique, I was open to all of them. Or at least tried to be. I like different things about different medium and some times the idea will dictate what media needs to be used. I use very small watercolor brushes when I paint in gouache. When I paint a mural on the wall I'm planning, I'll be using sponges, rollers, and brushes. My style approach will be affected as well.
Playing around with a new surface to paint on with gouache. My friend Travis Louie gave me some scraps of hotpress illustration board to try out last time I visited him. His studio looks like an art store as it doubles as his supply closet as well. Very similar to my own! I find so much inspiration from my friends. Sometimes just seeing something they posted on Face Book or their blog is more than enough to light a fire under my ass! I'm still struggling with this paper but I see a lot of potential. This is still not finished yet. My plan is to see how much "polish" I can do on this so I know what I'll be able to do with it in the future.
