ink, then digital.

The monochrome designs are for laser-etched
ornamental bicycle cranks.

The two-color variations are just for me; they
would make a nice pair of prints, or something.

Soda Bottle

8" x 14", gouache .

An quick exercise in drawing and painting from observation. Done in prussian blue, sepia, yellow ochre and white. Drawn first with red conté crayon on chipboard.

Could've used better lighting, fluorescent bulbs kill surface interest to my eye and washes out contrasts and shadow; plastic is hard enough to render under the best of conditions.

This would've been more satisfactory with a single incandescent bulb or in direct sunlight.

"Sloth Scamper"

I was recently commissioned by this band in Taiwan called Sloth Scamper, who describe their music as "shoegazer powernoise", which after listening to some of it, I suppose I now understand :)

They were looking for an artist  to create and design the art for their cd packaging, and they found my work online.

Here are the images used on the cd cover, insert, back, and on the disc itself.

Each is about ~7'5" x 7'5", actual size. Mixed media.
