Rapidiograph Apples

In my last apple blog post, I'd started thinking about backgrounds and composition. I stepped back from that. I'm really enjoying just drawing and not creating anything finished with these. 
Here are a couple more sketches. I like this style.. Maybe even more than the color pencil drawings. Been drawing some bananas and pears too, but I like to keep with the apples as a common denominator.

Russian Political Constructivism Art T-shirt

...Another newly posted design from my art movement series for NonFiction Tees.

This T-shirt depicts some of the colorful cubist hallmarks of Russian constructivism.

Constructivism was an artistic and architectural movement that originated in Russia from 1919 onward which rejected the idea of "art for art's sake" in favor of art as a practice directed towards social purposes.
