Found Sketches

Rummaging through some of my older sketchbooks, I came across a few sketches I had been happy with, and forgot about. It's rare that I find time to sit down with a live model and actually accomplish some figure drawings, so I don't often have the option to post any. So, upon rediscovering these, I decided to post them. ... and, well, here they are.

FREAK SHOW Concept Rendering

Youngblood Theatre Company's Fall production of Carson Kreitzer's FREAK SHOW ran for it's final weekend ending on the 20th. The show had a pretty good turn out, and received several good reviews. It's great to know that everyone's hard work and enthusiasm was well received.

Maybe later I'll upload some photos of the set, but for now, I thought I'd share my original concept rendering. Those who saw the show would see that there were some changes made on the actual set, but overall, this is a good example of what the set looked like.

Next up on the Youngblood Theatre Company agenda is a remount of Adam Rapp's RED LIGHT WINTER in January, so definitely keep an eye out for that.

Turning Blue


I've started a handful of small paintings creating figures with only blue and ivory paint. And, of course, working in gold leaf stripes and different types of lace (for this painting, thin and hot pink..). This is by far the most stripped down I've allowed a painting to be in a long time. Probably because I feel this painting was an experiment as well as a beginning. A beginning to a much needed body of personal work. I'm not quite sure what to make of it yet. All I know right now, is that it feels good to be involved in personal work again. I intend to make the most out of whatever free time I have.
