Some of the artwork from the exhibition that I think I may not have posted yet on tumblr.
Check out the full collection here!
I drew my bag while bored at the gallery this weekend. I may play around with this at some point in photoshop to colour it.
Brush pens are awesome sketching tools!

'Let there be Life' is a joint exhibition held by Sayada Ramdial, Ellij Nicholas and Sarah Burrows. The show draws inspiration from life itself, and it also reflects on the biblical concept of creation. The opening reception will be held Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 6:00pm - 9:00 pm at The Art Society of Trinidad & Tobago, and will run until Sunday August 3, 2014.
Check it out! We’re in arc magazine :)
Happy Eid-ul-Fitr! So much curry to be cooked at home tomorrow…
In Trinidad, this year they set the national holiday for Eid as tomorrow. So same as last year, lots of curry to be cooked tomorrow!
Hope everyone, especially all muslims, has a good Eid :)
For July’s QuickTalk, each member made an influence map showing aspects of art history that affect their work. We’ll be posting each member’s map over the next few days, so keep watching!
Clockwise from left:
-Alphonse Mucha, because holy crud look at it
-Glen Keane, since Disney was probably a huge influence from childhood, and he’s a huge part of their aesthetic in the films I grew up with
-Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, because I love his mark making, the way he treats his subjects…just his overall loose yet masterful approach
-Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin), because… come on we all had our awkward anime art phases
-James Northfield, and other gorgeous vintage travel poster art
-J.C. Leyedecker, because hnggg his art reduces my ability to even
Hey look, I did an influence map!
Seriously, these artists amaze me. Look up Leyendecker and Northfield especially.
Challenge 49: Collector’s Edition: The Golden Compass
Hello all, I’m pleased to be filling the shoes of the wonderful Elizabeth Beals for this month’s challenge!
The last book I ‘read’, or rather listened to, was the audiobook of A Dance with Dragons, the 5th in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Here’s my take on how the hardcover collector’s edition might look, with the symbols of various houses (and a certain city) ready to ‘dance’ in silver foil.
What I’ve been up to this month also includes this! The talented elizabethbeals was sweet enough to ask me to fill in for her over at another SCAD-alum based illustration collective, the square carousel :)
It was fun! And now my eyes need to rest.
Trinis- nothing to do over the long weekend?
Come see the show!
Bring your friends/ family/ significant other/ wealthy nemeses/ art enthusiast acquaintances… whoever.
Bit of a sneak peak of a painting I started last year and finished yesterday. It was sitting under my bead for many months in between of course :] This one as well as a few others still need to be matted and/or framed.
Framing costs are stacking up, I really hope this show goes over well!
A Facebook event has been created, by the way, where you can get more info and rsvp to the exhibition. I’d love to meet some of y’all there!
