new work march 2010 (part 1)

This is the first of four self portrait works I have done for a life drawing assignment. The task is to interpret the person (be it yourself or a friend, etc) in an interesting way. For this piece, I wanted to portray myself as a rugged, take-no-bs kind of fighter as a metaphor to my work ethic in most assignments I work on.

I always appreciated an athlete's definition of intensity, be it a boxer, an mma fighter, etc. training in extreme conditions to bring your best moves to a match. The same can be said for artists- we all try to formulate or experiment approaches, concepts and ideas to see if we can evolve or bring a technique we weren't fond of using before. The mediums used in this piece are a combination of acrylic ink, white, sienna and black conte, red gouache and a slate grey pencil crayon.

More works to come! STAY TUNED.
