New Project: CMYK

The plan for my next series is called "CMYK" in which I want to portray elements of print design in an artistic matter. In printing, CMYK mode is primarily used so for each color (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and blacK) will be personified into female figures à la Alphonse Mucha style, my favorite artist and father of Art Nouveau. Below are some sketches I did last week. Now to find some research on some of my ideas and expand on them.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Finally finished this series (started it in November 2009). I have already started some sketches on a new series, we'll see how long that will take to complete.

More Woman Portrait

Trying to work on those feminine features and trying to move away from angular and sharp edges. Quick sketch I did on the plan on the way to Fort Lauderdale last week (which of course took longer than expected) but never underestimate the power of paper and pencil!
