One a (week)day: Day 167 – Cicada

102307-cicada.jpg
Piece number 167 (10/23/07). This one was done because it was suggested by my friend Jen. When the big cicada invasion happened a few years ago, I was petrified. In my mind is was going to be a bad horror movie with the cicadas being the size of school buses. I was happy that was not the case. They were annoying, but they were amazing to watch. My friend Michelle and I watched a few of these guys coming out of their previous body – it was mighty interesting.

–UPDATE 031610 – Reposting this work foe this week’s Illustration Friday theme of “subterranean”. Though these were a good fit – or at least the 7 year kind since they are spending most of their lives in the earth.

One a (week)day: Day 166 – Hummingbird

102207-hummingbird.jpg
Piece number 166 (10/22/07). I am pretty happy with how this one came out. I like the colors, the texture, and the composition. I spent time texturing the paper just right. This small image does not do the colors of the actual work justice.

Figuring out the balance of detail to use with regards to the size of the final piece is something I have had to figure out as I have gone along with my style. This is a great example of that. If I made individual features on his body or breast it would have been way too busy for a postcard size work.

This weeks files updated w/ scans

I have gotten to scan in this past weeks works. So, the photos have been replaced with nice clean scans. In case you did not know these works were all created while stationed in my dad’s hospital room – so the situation was not ideal.

Day 165 – Orchid (Grow)

101907-orchid-grow.jpg
Piece number 165 (10/19/07). Now today’s work is again from Illustration Friday and the theme is “Grow”. I know I have done a few flowers already this week. But with theme and a combination of having someone suggest an orchid and having an orchid already on my mind made it seem like this is what I was meant to do today. I dont feel this is best rendering of a flower – but I like it. I had a lot of problems concentrating on this.

One a (week)day: Day 164 – Bird of Paradise

101807-bird-paradise.jpg
Piece number 164 (10/18/07). Now today’s work did put me in a better mood. The colors make me smile. I went with a simpler subject again today, b/c my hand is still hurting from Tuesday’s piece. I am having surgery in 2 weeks to help out and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will work. If this one works, I may be able to get the same procedure done on some other fingers.

6″x 4″:: $45 unframed original piece, $75 framed original piece. Once the original sells, limited edition giclee prints will be available at $25 (unframed) The piece sold and a print is available.

One a (week)day: Day 162 – Pill

101607-pill.jpg
Piece number 162 (10/16/07). In honor of my dad’s surgery and for a suggestion made by Erica, today’s theme is pill. Actually this is more of a capsule medication. The contents of the pill is made up of probably 1000 little pieces of paper. I lost count after 700, but kept cutting for a long time after that number. My hand is KILLING ME – I do not remember when it has hurt this bad.

–UPDATE 07/21/08– Original has been sold. A limited edition of 100 digital prints are now available for $30 ($25 for the print and $5 for USPS Priority mail) INTL customers please email me for shipping costs. Also framing is available for an additional cost. All prints are on an art paper with a hand-cut signature.

the art

All my artwork is made of paper. It is only created using paper, glue, and patience. The works on this site represent the pieces that I am attempting to create each weekday. These pieces are available to purchase and once an original is sold prints will become available. Other work can be viewed on my main site - www.sagworks.com. Larger works are available to purchase as originals or prints through sagworks.com. I am also available for commissioned pieces.
