Freestyle Fridays Week #37

I did this weeks Freestyle Friday, I experimented with a scratch art project. I had my program try this one out. First I layered the crayon on thick. Then painted over the whole thing with Tempra Paint. Last I scratched in the design. This could still use some work. I may switch the Tempra with Acrylic.

Freestyle Fridays Week #36

This week I took more time detailing and designing the initial sketch. I did 2 sketching sessions of building and blending. I then splashed on some water colors randomly blending them together. I let that dry and then I filled in some of the shapes to fill it out. Finally, I went in with an ink pen and detailed the main figure.

Freestyle Fridays Week #35

This week I sketched out some ideas I had for a create and destroy wall. This piece is focused on create.  I unified the letters for create with the background and vise versa. I used water colors and water colorpencils for the next step. To finish it off I tightened it up with ink pens and colored pencil

Freestyle Fridays Week #34

This weeks Freestyle Friday is just the way that I work out concepts and letter styles.
I work out a lot of designs and structures at the wall on site. But working out some of the ideas
and treatments before hand lets me get a clearer picture and also gives me something to show the people I am workinhg with. Each design or effect could be for one letter, a whole piece or whole background.

In Serch Of Some New Styles

Freestyle Fridays Week #33

I started this sketch a couple weeks ago but with the Jersey Fresh Graffiti Jam coming up I let it sit. Started out wit some mechanical drawings in colored pencil. Added some water color filling in areas, but also blending, and splashing.
Added a skull with ball point pen as the main image tried to keep it translucent. Finished it with some shading with water color and colored pencil.

Freestyle Fridays Week #28

So I needed to do a new UV piece for the http://www.leonrainbow.com/shows/2010/bangkok-blacklight-at-smile-gallery-in-philly/ so I took some larger paper. I decided to use the piece with the coffee stains..to see if I could rock over it. Took it in the backyard because I new I was gonna be a bit messy for the first few layers. Added a few messy layers with UV paint and water. Then added some mists and tags with fluorescent spray paint. Took it in the house and added some watercolor and colored pencil.
