Karyatid Facade

I meant to post the facade I created for my new portfolio page on MySpace. This piece is all about texture, from the concrete textures I used to build the facade, to the parchment and spray paint. I wanted my home page to look like the side of an old building in NY, so I needed some high relief designs. I pieced those together using various elements, such as a fleur de lis motif from an old Art Nouveau tile. I started out with a small fragment of blank cement about two inches square and I just built up layers of texture and stains and relief until I felt like I had built something with a presence.

Lastly, I stumbled across this great source of images and wanted to share it, in case there's like me who relies a lot on found images to create their work. Check it out! source of human photo references for 3D modeling and texturing

Ghosts of Wonderland

Cornish Witch
(This piece was done for a themed Photoshop contest.
I did not enter this piece, I just did it to see if I could
do something on the subject.)

(This was the original source of the above collage piece.)

Christmas Wedding
(This was entered in a Photoshop contest.
I believe I placed 9th, which was a bit insulting,
considering I put a lot more work into this than
those that were ahead of me.)

Now for some recent paintings!

Lemon Honeybee Cake

Angel Bunny

Balloon Bunny

That's all I have for you right now, but there will hopefully be some more in the near future!
