Mike LeGrand's Brawltimore Harbor




New commissioned piece by me for Mike LeGrand, his idea.  I spent about 40 hours (give or take) on this fun illustration. Theme was a battle-royal of Baltimore Inner Harbor landmarks and Pop Culture. I invented the character of the B&O Railroad Steam-marching-band-man, inspired by Iron Giant and my love of College Marching Bands.  Photoshop, Wacom Cintiq 22inch monitor.

John Browns Rebellion

John Brown's rebellion was short, but poignant, was the inspiration for  Julia Ward Howe to write the Battle Hymn of the Republic. I learned this watching Ken Burn's classic documentary "The Civil War."

"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on."

The Process and Two AK74 Pattern Rifle

Two more digital paintings of weapons. I'm thinking this will be a continuing series and new body of work. Relearning how to look at detail and convey on a canvas. Have to Give a shout-out to my College Illusionism teacher, Susan-Waters-Eller, who taught me how to convey depth with tone, and how to spend more time making work, who also said Digital has a place in the fine art world.  http://seeingmeaning.blogspot.com/


"The Process" - 7 hours of d-painting in Photoshop.


"Two Ak74 Pattern" - about 6 hours, Photoshop.
