022517 – Glassware design


So I have an opportunity to possibly turn one of the cocktail artworks into a design for a Double Old Fashioned glass. So here is a sketch I’ve come up with for it. It is somewhat modified from the original artwork I made. I like the overall design here – but need to rework it for colors. I am planning on cutting all of the parts out and scanning them in individually to vectorize them to work with them directly in Illustrator. I will also need to modify it so it will look good with only 3 colors. But it is a start…

This isn’t a done deal – but I am hopeful!! I would love to see this happen!!!

Here is the original Abstract Cocktail piece this is based.

022217 – Abstract Vacation

{click for larger version} So here is the piece I started based on different patterns and carpets I saw while on a family vacation this summer. The trip was too much for my dad and we lost him shortly after this. The trip was tough emotionally on so many levels. I can’t say I have come to terms with everything, but this piece helped. It is chaotic and busy with many layers – there are also bright spots and holes. I think this sums up my being right now!

The work  is a little under 8.5″x 11″ | It will go into a 11″ x 14″ or 12″ x 16″ frame|| $225

121817 – Revisting a piece

So I decided to revisit this piece I started late this summer. It was an abstract piece based on some photos and things I saw while on a big family vacation. I took it out of the drawer and just went at it. I think the tone of it has changed from my original thoughts to something more chaotic – but I think it now matches my feelings from the past few months. It isn’t done – just yet…
