Santa "CLAWS" iIlustration [part 1] - Friday Art

Usually I upload one of my latest drawings each Friday (Friday art) to share with you all. Today I've a scanned image of a rip-off version of Santa Claus. I'll be shading this illustration and hope that come next week it will be all coloured and finished. As expected I'll be using Photoshop to do the job.

Hope you have a great weekend :)

Hot Stuff : Episode 01

I'm really enjoying the production of Hot stuff mini skits. Above you'll find the first episode, and I'm done with the next script for it. My 3rd episode will feature something from the 2011 Rugby World Cup! However I still have to do the 2nd episode before we get into that! Cisca De Villiers even helped me co-direct a scene from episode 3 which will be spoken in her first language; Afrikaans.

Usually I upload a "Friday drawing" but I thought this would be so much more fun, hope you enjoyed the episode!

My "Picasso"

Frankly I had never really admired Picasso's work. I knew that Art History tells us he was GREAT! Despite all the hype I for one wasn't impressed until yesterday.

I had an assignment to paint like one of the great artists Van Gogh and all the others, and I felt that maybe I can try a  Picasso like painting. I used an image of myself as reference (the one I was holding a camera). Suddenly I found myself indulging in Picasso's child like technique. Now, I LOVE his style. Picasso was a genius to have come up with things like this. I can't describe how it feels to paint like this. I don't know if their words I can use.

Originally You can see my "face" there in white, yellows, and brown. You can also see my green fingers holding a blue camera with a dial. If you absorb the image longer, things start to.... change.

My hand starts to look like a banana tree or something, blue begins to feel like an old building. The area around my nose suggests 2 mountains. Creepy? Unintentionally when one paints a Picasso, you give your audience multiple realities. That's the beauty of it.

Chameleon: Friday Art

I painted this in my illustration class last Tuesday. It's a chameleon painting its self :) with a little of its tounge sticking out. I've always enjoyed painting since my days at Peter Birch School of Art

It's been a great week I'm glad my Animation website is now back online again after a few glitches. Cheers!
