Drawing & Painting Demos
Drawing Demo: Mina from Sailor Moon, Part 1: Sketching
A demo of my drawing process, part 1. For this drawing, I am referencing an image of Mina, a character from the Japanese manga, Sailor Moon. This video is me sketching and finding out the major shapes and lines of the subject. I am using a Graphik Line Maker pen in Sepia, size 0.3 on Bee Pen Sketcher Paper, which I enjoy drawing on with pen. Though Part 2 will focus on coloring the drawing. Enjoy.
Photo Shoot in Quarantine
During this time of "stay at home" and COVID-19, I was looking for a creative outlet and I came across the idea of doing a photo shoot in the home. So today, I scrounged up a few objects to photograph, including a jar of pennies, paintbrushes, a horse figurine from my grandmother's old house, a crochet project, a nesting doll, pliers, part of a bike, a spool of thread and a clock from my childhood, It was a fun project to creatively shoot ordinary objects; and at the same time it was a bit nostalgic as I photographed things from my past or items that represent my art interest.
Masked in Fear & Death
During the spring and summer of 2020, I was part of an art collaborative that commented on the coronavirus pandemic that has spread across the world and at the moment of this posting has killed 150,000 Americans so far, including one of my uncles. In the collaborations, each artist creates their response to the issue and then exchanges his or her work with another and creates an artistic response to the other artists piece. The drawings in this video are my artistic expressions to what is going on and the photo at the end is me wearing the mask my collaborating artist made for me in response to my artwork. I created this video to show how the picture and the mask are tied together. Enjoy.
