Hello fellow tumblr-ers. You all have been incredibly awesome and supportive of me, and as a token of my appreciation I’m giving away art! One lucky winner will get a custom drawing of whatever they’d like.
Two different ways to enter:
1. Reblog this post here on Tumblr
2. Comment on this picture on Facebook
What you win: A custom drawing, subject matter of your choice, drawn by me, and mailed to you to have and to own forever and ever. I’ll draw whatever you want; whether that’s a portrait, an animal, a portrait as an animal, a superhero, a portrait as an animal-superhero riding a dinosaur, etc… it’s up to you.
(Whether the drawing is black and white or color is up to me and depends on how complex of an image you’d like.)
Contest closes on Wednesday Mar. 27th at midnight EST
A piece I did a few years ago when President Obama and Hilary Clinton were battling it out for the Democratic nomination.
This is an homage to two illustrators whose work I have admired for decades; Gilbert Stone who made the distorted portrait famous, and C.F. Payne who perfected the mixed-media layering technique that I used for this piece. Payne also distorts his figures from time to time and pays homage to Gil Stone as he does so. Of course, stretching the figure isn’t a modern phenomenon, and these guys’ work is an homage to the Renaissance masters like Boticelli and the Mannerists who idealized the human form by distorting the proportions to create a more idealized figure.
This was done as a technique demo for one of my illustration classes, and the model is a student of mine named Jill.
A watercolor portrait of one of my amazing students, Solongo Monkhooroi.
here’s a big gulp of…..FREEDOM.
