May Social Media Highlights

May 31, 2018

Hi. This is my social media highlights from Instagram from May 2018.

I recently finished my Snorf character piece below. It will eventually be for sale either in my future online shop or at a local art fair in the future. Stay tuned for more information about that. I will post an announcement on Instagram once I add a newsletter opt-in to my website and once I launch an online shop. Since this will be my very first time selling my art online, I will only be selling within Canada for the time being. But, I will announce once I start selling my work to people in the United States as well. I hope you will follow me and join me on my journey as my imaginary animal and creature art develops and evolves along the way.

One thing I want to add about my fantasy-like imaginary characters is that what they truly are is what you can think of as your favourite imaginary friend. Maybe you had one as a child. I did. Mine wasn’t quite an imaginary creature of my imagination per say, but he was one of my favourite story book characters. He was Clifford the Big Red Dog and I imagined he was my pet dog.

I’m contemplating coming up with a possible back story for each of my imaginary animals, but I’ll see how things go moving forward. I think it would give more life to my animals. In addition to my mixed media works, I am planning on doing a few professional quality papier mache head portrait wall sculptures soon; so, stay tuned for that as well.

All finished! Title : “Snorf Imagined”. This is part of my Dream Wall series. It is 30x24 inches digital art and mixed media on Epson Ultra Premium Paper and fine art paper mounted on wood gallery panel. The panel is one and a half inches deep. The print of Snorf is glued on to fine art paper and seamlessly blended with mixed media fine art materials. I used rice paper for smooth blending and pan pastels acrylics and Shiva paint sticks. I created this as a blend of digital and traditional art materials because I like the contrast of the details of digital paint with the tactile feel of the mixed media. Note: the circular logo in the bottom corner is for display purposes and is not part of the actual piece. #imaginaryanimalart #mixedmediaart #childrensdecoranddesign #fantasyanimalart #originalartwork #whimsicalart
Creating away. I enjoy using pan pastels for the soft feel it gives to the background in contrast to Unisnoove. This piece is still in  its very early stages. #unisnoove #panpastels #mixedmediaart #digitalart.
Close up head sketch for Splorchrich. Sometimes I just draw allowing my imagination or subconscious to guide my drawing and sometimes I’ll just get an idea. For naming my creatures , I give it the first thing that comes to mind. I love using made up names for my made up animals. #imagination #sketchbook
Initial sketch for my next imaginary animal. This one will be called Splorchrich. I am posting a more detailed sketch of the head separately.

I love using made up names for my made up animals.
Applying Pan Pastel to my piece. Using iridescent, glittery pan pastel to give a bit of a sparkle to the piece. I am applying a triangle and circle pattern with the pastels that reflect the patterns that will be the the “wallpaper” of the piece and is also the patterns on Unisnoove’s body. #mixedmediaart #fantasyart #digitalart #corelpainter2018 #childrensdecor #fantasyart
Here is another sketchbook sketch. I’m still brainstorming how I want my next series of fantasy/imaginary animals to look. I had to add paper to the top of the page because I ran out of space for the top of her head. Sometimes my imagination is at its best when I’m relaxing in bed before falling asleep. Last night the idea came to me to make this unicorn inspired animal with fine elongated features and three horns. I’m thinking of calling this either a Tricorn or an Equifawn. Still brainstorming on that. This will be part of my Dream Wall series as a subcategory depending how it evolves over time. #createfromyourinnerchild #kidsroomart
