My latest idea is based on an image of the St. Basil’s Cathedral. It is a beautiful cathedral which I wanted to include in one of my illustrations using my favorite polar bear again and a “super – skinny” woman. I started the painting with a prisma color basis (left side – on top: my sketch) and added an acrylic wash (right side). There is still a lot of work to do but I thought I’ll show you a little of what I am doing lately…
This illustration is done in Mixed Media (colored pencils, acrylics)
sketch – value study
(while painting it I decided to go with a colorful background instead of the cloudy-white background in my value study)
The poster was designed to be used for different gigs – therefore, I left the bottom part (‘Music for Marinas’) simply white to give room for different announcements. If you are interested in Bob’s performance schedule, please, check out his website @ www.bobericksonmusic.com
The illustration is done traditionally with prisamcolors and acrylics, and then worked out digitally.
Below are the photos (Billy Bob/ Fly Creek Marina) that I worked with.
I haven’t updated my website in a while; we were moving – again! For some odd reason the boxes just become more and more. I don’t even remember that I have packed that many of them. Finally we moved into our new home so I can find some time to show you my latest work…
…a website design. So far, I haven’t done a lot of digital art and therefore this was a challenge. I started out with a traditional illustration – just a rough layout, which I scanned in and then worked it out digitally. To make it look more rugged I left the original line work shine through the digital work.
The final sketch was based on all four sketches including the vikings, the amazon and the dragon.
My design is not yet included in the t-e-a-m website – I’ll keep you informed…
Finally it’s done!!!
BOB’S NEW CD “HAMMERHEAD STEW”
While Bob Erickson was busy recording his new CD, I tried my best to work out a cover for it. We decided to place him on the front – cooking his ‘famous’ Hammerhead Stew – while on the back, the hammerhead shark is cooking him in revenge.
The illustrations are done in mixed media on illustration board. The text was added later in InDesign.
You can see Bob live every Thursday 7 p.m. at the FlyCreeCafe in Fairhope, AL.
