tattoo design turned print

I designed this tattoo for a friend who wanted a wild west bandit inspired design. Thinking about how I like tattoos with hard edges and less soft shading - I don't think soft rendering ages well or compliments the body, I came up with this. It is definitely inspired by Shepard Fairey, and i plan n creating a larger print/painting from it, which I hope to post in the near future. There are a few design possibilities, I am not sure for the print/painting which I will choose and what I will be added to it, you will just have to wait and see.

Classroom doodles

Well as you may or may not know I have been attending a program in order to obtain my teaching license. This program conducts class twice a week , and like many artists taking notes during a lecture, I find myself sketching rather than note-taking. These "doodles" began to compile and grow into a body of work. Although I do not consider these works final works of art, they do reflect many ideas I have for future pieces and incorporate familiar icons within my own artistic lexicon. I have not posted anything for a while because I have been consumed with student teaching and creating lesson art lesson plans for my own students. These doodles are the closest thing to a finished product as of late. So as always I appreciate any feedback and I hope you enjoy my classroom doodles.

Lesson Plan

Well it has been a while since my last post. I have been very busy, working on various projects, and none of them near completion. It is this state of being incomplete that makes me weary from posting any new art. However, with that said, I have decided to put up a work in progress. Over the past few weeks I have been constructing a self portrait lesson plan designed for high School students. it involves looking up celebrity photos and constructing a collage of sorts from the chosen photos. The lesson entitled "Movie Me,' as cleverly labeled by my partner, is an egocentric exercise in pondering the thought;"if a movie was made about you, what actor would play you?' Needless to say this lesson plan quickly morphed into my own art project and transcended any normal self portrait exercise. The image you see is a construction that began as an exemplar for the students to follow, and later evolved into my own personal project. Although in its current, unfinished state, I did not intend for the students to witness this piece as their exemplar to follow; however the animation is intended for student viewing. I plan on having students observe the various stages in the process to gain an understanding of the direction the project is to take. I hope you find the product interesting, and I will post future developments of this images evolution.
