Progress Photos: PaperMonster “From Experience” Painting

January 12, 2016

 Each one of my paintings starts off with a simple idea followed by a more detailed sketch You can read more in my Stencil Art Tutorial (HERE). For my “From Experience” painting I started with the sketch you see below. These drawings are so important because they give me a reference point for what will or wont work as a stencil. Below you can some process and progress photos and see how the initial sketch turned out as a final painting.

Above you can see the initial sketch. The initial idea started out as a lion/woman combination but after sketching out the concept I realized I wanted the painting to have more symmetry. When I re-drew the sketch prior to cutting the stencil I removed the lion’s mane and turn the lion into a tiger.

Above you can see the final piece. You can see the symmetry and calculated placement of shapes. In the original drawing there were too many shapes that would clutter the stencil and were removed. See if you can spot what was kept and what never made it into the final piece.

NYC: PaperMonster Give and Take Project

July 14, 2009
I am very excited to show some new images from my “Give and Take” Project. The city is full of treasures, texture and communication. The new pieces for the project attempt to capture the decay of colors and textures of the street and give them new life. It is great to explore new locations around the city and visit some classic spots that are sure to never disappoint, such as the Candle Building on Wooster Street. I think the project is going in the right direction and I can’t wait to see what direction it takes me in. Enjoy the images below and feel free to send me your thoughts at v@papermonster.org





Not sure of the name of the street artist who placed the bowl of cherries but together, along with the glare from the trees this picture turned out great.
Enjoy
