Grinding foward.

Just some recent stuff ive been working on.

Ill be attending the light grey concept art workship starting on the 30th so i thought ide practice some character stuff.

Also, ive been continuing experimenting with inking and design work.

Everyone's work and enthusiasm is extremely inspiring. Since i live in the middle of nowhere, with no real art community, it has been great connecting with everyone over facebook/twitter. Thanks a lot for all the support!

Freelancing Question

Hey guys!

No work to post at the moment, but I was wondering if I could ask you guys a question and perhaps get some feedback.

I was contacted by someone who asked for a quote on a character design for an iPad app. I checked out the company he works for and it is international and has done work for some pretty big-name clients.

I can come up with a range for the basic character design, but since this is for an app I'm not sure where the usage rights fall. The Graphic Artist's Guild Handbook for Pricing and Ethical Guidelines doesn't really cover that for online media. Does anyone know offhand if I should charge for usage rights or if this is a case where I don't retain usage rights or royalties?

Thanks in advance, miss you guys!

Don't Forget

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing so well! It's hard to believe it's been a month since bootcamp. Just wanted to share this little fun lettering project I contributed to Alyssa Nassner's new project, Positive Inking. The project features daily illustrated and hand-lettered affirmations to inspire you when you are in a bit of a rut (as we all are at some point, right?).  My first post is a hat tip to The Vlogbrothers. Just a reminder that not matter what you are doing, never forget to just be your awesome self.

Been trying to focus on doing more complex work "in context" instead of random doodles in my sketch book.

In these two i was trying to figure out a workflow. Ive been really getting into mixing Digital and Traditional.
I know i just gotta keep at it... right now this stuff isnt turning out the way i want it... but i guess that is part of learning.

(inspired by the movies "Titan AE" and "Castle in the Sky".)

Further Progress on Exquisite Corpse

The mock up for my piece in the Night of the Exquisite Corpse Show at the Light Grey Art Lab is ready! This is my MPLS Bike Punk, showing his angst toward the whiny Portland for stealing the #1 Bike City title. ANGST!! Now time to dive into the final illustration work!

Inking Expirements.

Lately ive been really inspired by Andres to continue with the inking practice. I've found that its really a great way to understand value and relationships in the simplest way.

Here are a couple of my dabblings. Check out more  crap Art on my blog. Aryehart.tumblr.com

Exquisite Corpse Progress

Kaycie's first post!

Hey guys! 

How's life post-Bootcamp?? Mine is going pretty well, I'm still reeling over how awesome it was. Right now I'm still working diligently on Chapter 1 of my webcomic (which will be released sometime before September... I'll post a link once it's up!) and taking my Illustration for Product Design class at MCAD. In the meantime, I'm doing a little bit of "fun" drawing on the side, and here's my most recent endeavor!

"Make your move, Reindeer Games." 

Still riding my "Avengers" fascination, so I drew a dumb little Loki-reindeer for kicks. 

I also did my own write-up of Illustration Bootcamp over at my blog (and I said terribly incriminating wonderful things about all of you, of course) if you want to check that out too. :)

And my new portfolio site is here!

Well, that's all I got for now. Keep being awesome, everyone!

two tiny things

hey dudes! I MISS YOU GUYS AND BOOTCAMP EVERSO MUCH. I was all inspired to get things going once it was over, but then life took over and all I managed to do was get a cargo collective account (yay! new website soon!) and make these two little typographic specimens. And I started watching Twin Peaks. Does that count as artistic research?

This is just a mini-card I made for my brother, from  a sharpie, highlighter, white out and black felt tip marker. Work supplies as art supplies ftw!

This is a little concept work for a zine I'm planning out with an awesome lady poet I met via the interwebs. 

Are people posting their various websites of interest? I can be found at the following places:
I have a behance but I haven't updated it in ages, so I won't link to it. 

How are you guys doing?

I really like the lion head illustration i did and it seemed like  a lot of people responded well to it.

Here is a second one.

Really this whole style is a fluke... i was trying to figure out how Meg did her paper texture thing... and this is what i ended up with lol...


Here's some pages from my sketchbook of some things I've been working on since Sunday. Some letter-work, among other things.. I know Fancy Ray's eye looks a little big and crazy in that one but I think it kind of works.. The other three portraits are of detroit rapper Danny Brown, just trying out some different styles and techniques. If anybody can think of some good source images for jewels and gems that would be MUCH appreciated! Hope everyone is doing well!
