Running With Paintbrushes

So I should probably tell you all about my other blog, Running with Paintbrushes.  This is a project I am currently working on with 2 of my best of friends, Rebecca Solow and Scott Murphy.  We were great friends in the Illustration program at Hartford Art School.  We moved to Astoria, NY together and have lived together until recently, when I moved into my girlfriend, Sarah's, Apartment.  This blog is meant to illustrate the varying ways in which we work, along with showing how each of us would tackle an assignment. Each month (approx.) we will get a new assignment from a professional artist, art director, inspiration, etc.  Then each week we will show our thumbnails, finished drawings, and Final paintings.  It should be a lot of fun, and hopefully we will be able to keep it running until we become too busy with real illustration work.
So please follow us on our journey.

Will o' the Wisp

It's been a long time since I have done a drawing with the intent that it would be a stand-alone finished piece. I wish I did t more often, there is something so wonderful about having no need to set up a work station, no palette to fill with paint, no easel to sit at, just the wonder of a pencil and a sheet of paper. I love this piece so much that in the future I would like to flesh it out a little more as a painting, but as for now I am completely satisfied. Will o' the Wisp, 9" x 16", pencil, 2009.
