I found this from my Junior year of high school in 2009, was blessed to be the winner of this ‘Southlake Carroll Veteran’s Day Art Competition”
I was obliged to give a speech at the award ceremony during the ‘Veteran’s Day’ pep rally. I saluted and walked off the stage since I knew they would rather see the picture than hear me talking about it. Sometimes the frame can bring out a mood or more profound statement by monumentalizing the picture plane. I always have been drawn to the play of middle red and blue, like the colors of 3d glasses.
This is an old newspaper article with photo of my friend Travis, Kent and myself at Westlake Academy. I went half a semester in 6th grade before transferring to public school again with Southlake Carroll School District.
So, I have been working for a couple hours everyday on inkwash and watercolor illustrations. These are a couple of them. I have been working on simplicity of line work and effective color management with this more illustrative or cartoonesque style.
