My mom retired a little while ago and decided to pursue her passion and dream of studying art. She has been painting for quite some time and drawing since she was very young but she wanted the foundation and community that study tends to afford. She loves it. And it’s all she talks about now, which isn’t a bad thing. I wasn’t sure what she’d churn out when it came to styles and media that she wasn’t natively interested in pursuing but I do like the variety of pieces she has produced. It’s weird to know that this is basically the beginning but i’m definitely curious about what she’ll produce next.
She recently got picked up by Agora in New York and will have her first official show there in a few months. I put together a very quick site for here which you can see here but when I have time, I’d really like to put something special together for her. Feel free to take a look, cheer her on, or even better, purchase something here.
Here is some of her work.
so the lack of posting can mostly be attributed to this latest commission. oil on canvas. a photo reference was provided. i’ve been planning out a new tracy jordan inspired illustration so back to that i go. perhaps i will post progress but most likely it’ll all come out in one post. depends on my lazy factor, ha ha.
also, i don’t know what to call these? drawings? paintings? the ink seems waterbased so….watercolours? my ignorance knows no bounds.
it’s probably not the most original idea but ever since i started ignoring boundaries created by the the folds / bindings in my sketchbooks i don’t think i’ve consciously used them as part of the concept. hell, this anti-rorschach (bad label?) concept itself probably isn’t original at all. i’ll give it a few more goes and see what the results look like. maybe you will too. daria werbowy, anti-rorschached, in moleskine.
nikola is the photographer behind Ambrel.net. i’m not much of a photographer but i do have an appreciation for shooting at night, which he seemed to have a talent for (among other things). the subjects of his nightlife photography are pretty crazy and i suspect that the photos wouldn’t’ve been the same had someone else done them. some of his photos at random, in moleskine.
this place is definitely one of the most beautiful places i’ve ever been too, if only briefly. i’m guessing that few people actually live in the parts with the most stunning vistas and it must be damn expensive to vacation there but man is it nice! santorini in moleskine.
i actually have a hankering to post some photos but i’m too lazy to sort through and find a decent one. soooooo……this’ll have to do for now, ha ha. the acropolis is a cool place, even if it’s 37 C. athens is….a bit dirtier…looking…than i thought it would be but the history of it all is just craziness. when we visited the olympic stadium, some people got a good right yelling for entering the grounds to take pictures. good times. one of the buildings (no, not the parthenon) in the acropolis of athens, in moleskine.
