20121124-092632.jpg Using loose materials: graphite dust, sumi inks and dyes along with water colors I created an emotional effect to the piece. My goal was to show the innocence of the young maiden with the sin taste of the poison apple. Grimm group show will open on The First Friday of December 2012 For more information and artwork inquires please contact Gina at Blackbird Studios

Draw, Draw, Draw and “Fighting”

I spent my Friday at Emergency Arts. It’s a fun place to visit, friendly Baristas and you get to catch some cool galleries and workspaces for some artists. I met some awesome folks and drew two people. My first subject was Mr. Jerry Misko. Jerry’s a Las Vegas native, born and raised. His father was imported to Las Vegas for work, he was a Pitboss at a Casino.
Jerry is a painter. He’s very personable and a very hardwork artist. I have to admit it took me sometime to capture him.

Above: My pile of drawings were stacking up!

I was able to produce two drawings which I think came out interesting. My favorite drawing of him:

My favorite drawing of Jerry, he looks like a samurai warrior here. "Jerry Misko, FIGHTING!"


 

My second subject for portrait is of Ms. Becky Bosshart. Becky’s awesome! She grew up as a Military Brat, traveling often. She was brought to Las Vegas for writing. She is a graduate student at UNLV where she is studying journalism.

Becky has a very beautiful neck line. She was reading while I was drawing her.
