Gustav Klutis Tshirt

Here's my latest design for the art movement series I've been doing for NonFiction Tees.

This graphic tee depicts a reproduction of Klutis's "Axonometric Art." Distortions of space and dynamic composition are the telltale characteristics of Klutis's early art and make his work appear perpetually modern.

Apple Drawing / Soft Ground Etching Combo

I had been thinking about possible backgrounds for the apple drawings when I came across an old soft ground test from an etching I'd done years ago. I decided to use the apples and the etching as design elements to create a simple composition.

I was beginning to think I'd gone off the deep end taking up a fruit drawing study after a solid year and a half of painting very heavily graphic compositions. I'm realizing the potential of using more natural, less rigid shapes to create graphic compositions. I'm pretty excited to see how this evolves!

A nectarine?! Really?!

Last night I decided to draw - this nectarine.
For those of you familiar with what I have been doing, it would seem I had been possessed.
Haven't sat down and drawn like this in at least 10 years. I loved it. More to come.
