Howdy Folks, it’s Friday! Woot, woot! So, so, so glad. Been working a lot. Been dying to get painting again. But on kinda a sad note…. i think my studio is offically full! Like the Thom Yorke Painting is sitting on top of a chair. Marie Claire cover is leaning a against the six foot layered picture…. hm… i guess i have one of two options; first, maybe i can start doing Gallery shows so it frees up more room to make more art to hang in here….. or two, i can try to figure out how to hang art on the celling… haha, but need to figure something out soon. The painting i posted today is of one of my best friends brother-in-law Lowe Stellberger. He has his own Brilliant Shoe Line called Heutchy, which i was lucky enough to get to design a fabric for his Spring 09 Collection (which is coming soon). Oh and the painting was my second oil painting. i hope you like it. :) P.S. i got the funniest fortune cookie yesterday. It said “3 months to this day, something great will happen to you”. I’m hoping it comes true… So folks, mark the calander, April 15, 2009. It’s going to be a good day! hahahha
Morning, Morning! So i got a haircut yesterday, which was much needed cause my hair was about the longest it’s ever been! So needless to say, i feel quiet nice this morning. The post for today is a drawing i did for my friend Alice. Well, on New Year’s Eve we went over to her house and i looked up on the wall, and low and behold, the Painting was on the wall. :) Oh, p.s. the picture is of me on another adventure in the underground forest. But seeing it again made me want to post it. i really enjoy this one alot. I posted a song for one of my best friends Mr. Ryan Baxley. i thought it was fitting considering the post was about his fiancés painting. :) It’s really a great song from his Album “Bedtime Stories & Fairytales” Ryan Baxley’s Song or if you want to hear more music posted on this blog Click Here
Hey everyone, how are you? i finally took a day off cause i’ve been going a lot. Did this blogger portrait from Violette Tannenbaum of the blog L’atelier d’un fee. Please check out her blog. i hope you like the portrait.:) On another note, i’ve been working on this project, not sure if it will happen, but if it does, i can’t wait to fill you all in! :)
Wow! Hey friends! Sorry about the absence. i’ve been hustling on this project and haven’t slept for like a week… hah Well anyways, little while back a guy named Tom talked to me about doing a portrait of a girl he knows, as a Christmas present for her, but it took a while to get an image and finally this picture was born. He wanted me to do the piece in order to win the girl over. which seemed like a nobel cause. i’m about to send it off today. So Stephanie, if you are reading this, here is your Christmas present, and i hope you all like it and hope you are still with him. :)
Hey all. Well, it’s 2 in the morning and i have a few more hours of work left, so i shall make this short. The post today is a drawing i did of one of my all time best friends since 3rd grade Mr. Benjamin A. Williams III. We are working on a project together and i did this portrait for it. Hope you like it. Hope you’re all doing great! :)
Hello friends, please forgive my quick sabbatical. My 4 best friends came into town and reunited in the first time in a while. We have all been friends since i was in 2nd grade, so needless to say, i was out and about. Posted some pictures from it up on my Image Diary. The picture i posted is a goofy self portrait i did with a little Crayon set. It was really fun drawing and coloring with crayons. Wow, there are so many fun things to do when you are a little kid; coloring, playing tag, playgrounds, Hide and Go Seek, the hot lava game. i’m been really wanting to play those games lately. i need to find a group to play it with… and probably need to find a good forest for it, too.
Hey there friends, how’s the day going for ya? i had an action packed day, got a few paintings done, and started a drawing portrait of a ogre. haha i did this picture tonight of Marisa from the blog Thumbelina. i have to say, her blog is one of my favorites. it has the feeling of a dream or a fairy tale. Please check it out. i hope you all like it, :)
Merry Christmas Eve!! Wow! i can’t believe it’s here! I’m going to spend the first part of it cleaning my destroyed studio. Right now, i’m typing surrounded by multiple empty coffee cups, drawing references, candy, inks, colored pencils. You name it…. i need to clean.
Well, i finished up my first magazine cover yesterday. i’m really excited for you all to see it! it’s for a February issue of the magazine, so of course the cover theme is my favorite art subject matter, “Love”, but instead of doing something ultra lovey dovey, i decided to shoot for a feeling a little more abstract and harder to capture on paper… i wanted to capture the feeling of “Intimacy”. i wanted the viewer to look at the picture and feel first of all that they were the only person in the world that mattered to the cover girl, and second, that you had known her your whole life.. whether or not i accomplished that remains to be seen. haha
Now, for the main subject matter of the post. (sorry about the rambling; i slept in and now feel wired. hah) The drawing today is a sketch i did of two great French [intlink id=”3829″ type=”page”]bloggers[/intlink] Alix of Cherry Blossom Girl, and Louise of Miss Pandora. Alix’s blog is named after one of my favorite Air Songs, and i’ve been meaning to draw her for a while now. They did a photoshoot called “Les Nymphes” which you know with a title like that you can’t go wrong, but there was a picture of both Alix and Louise i had to draw.Tried something a little different out on the sketch. Hope you like it. Merry Eve of Christmas!
Ok, so, i know this is the 3rd Taylor Swift drawing i’ve posted on here, but this one comes with a story. When my mom saw the drawings i had already posted of her, she said to me, “Oh Danny, you know what? I have the perfect picture of Taylor Swift for you to draw.” i turned to her with a puzzled yet amused look on my face and said, ” Oh yea?” Taking my prompting she responded, ” Yes! When I was at Starbucks today, I saw her new album cover and it’s perfect for you to draw. I mean, in the picture she’s got ‘Your Hair’. You know what I mean, like the hair you draw. You should draw it.” haha. Yes, so this was Saturday that she said this to me. So i always “Honor my Father and my Mother” and thus this post was born. :) On another note, I was contacted by Schnati from the great German blog Les Mads. and she said they wanted to do a interview with me. So it’s up today on their site. Click Here for the Les Mads Interview.
