This is an Adobe Photoshop manipulation of a college piece, primarily using blending modes. Here is the original:

In our college life-drawing class we’d begin with quick gestures before getting in to the 30 or 60 minute poses. This is one of those gestures.

It’s also a drawing that has seen a few miles–wrinkles retained for sake of character.

Enjoy!

This is a Christian/Dionysian study from college.

Destined for Glass

Vertical Triptych

This was the first series I ever created, many college-moons ago. Essentially, they are prototypes for a column of stained-glass windows behind the altar of a church. They could be hung left to right but I created it with a vertical format in mind–in the order below.

 Also, they were just removed from storage and shipped to me a couple of weeks ago, so you will likely notice surface damage.
