This is a convenient place to upload images, so I can use my tablet in my outdoor studio, to access the images, for reference studies – so I can draw outside.
During the summer, it is especially beneficial, and a practice I have done for over a decade; I live in an equatorial, hot humid environment, with daily thunderstorms through the summer.
I work best in natural conditions, and have the most energy; but the humidity isn’t good for most of my expensive equipment ( PC desktop, touch screen Huion graphic tablet; paper and vintage comic book personal museum.
I set up the personal museum with $10,000; intending to study the comics of my childhood, and classics before my time – and after I stopped collecting; with as much dedication as I would if I lived in a dorm near Ringling Art College, and daily went to their museums to copy masters paintings. My vision was to bring my prolificity, and give it a direction – a theme, that connects them all; inspired by the budding Marvel cinematic universe, at the time I conceived this idea; around 2013.
My artistic goal has been to inform my style with the idealized forms of comicbook ( dating to the golden age), and meld them with naturalism.
So, I am attaching images here, when I have an idea for a study that would benefit upcoming projects; but want to be outside on the screen porch, in the fresh air, and reference my large verizon tablet.
If I open this to viewers, I may attach the studies. Concept art, and writing documents ( such as costume descriptions, design, and story).
These images are from internet searches, personal photos, confidential projects, and scans of vintage comics ( other media) and my own drawings. The copyright law varies for the aforementioned, however, the intent is for an academic purpose, and give insight into my process.
[ Can later insert images of trees, grass. Ocean scenes. ]
