Time Lapse Video in Collaboration with Brian Guice Media

Brian Guice Brian Guice

This will be the first in what I hope is a flurry of posts recapping a very productive start to 2014 for my work.  I had been interested in doing some kind of promotional video to give viewers an idea of how my drawings come together from start to finish.  I was lucky enough to find Brian Guice Media here in Laramie, Wyoming who had done some phenomenal time lapse videos of some of the artists doing mural work downtown.  Brian was outstanding to work with throughout the process, and I am very pleased with the results of our work together.  I also want to acknowledge Wesley Berg, who was a visiting artist I invited to UW in early 2014 and who I met a few years ago from a drawing show we did in Santa Fe.  Wesley provided the song for the video from his musical project, Glacier Face, and it’s pretty great.

AUNIVERSAL PICTURE 8

I just completed my second observational drawing of the diaper still lifes, and my third drawing with charcoal and conte on prepared linen.  In one of the images, one might note that I will be using simple steel bars affixed to the wall as a framing device for these pieces.

This is a work I started during a live observational drawing demo at Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center in Cincinnati, OH, February 2013. I’m sending the finished drawing back to help raise funds for the expansion of their space, which is definitely a worthy endeavor. I encourage all my friends to support a really great non-profit cultural institution that truly supports all of the arts.

This is my newest observational drawing based on a still life created out of diapers.  This is my second drawing on prepared linen instead of paper, and I used conte in addition to charcoal.  The hanging system is much simpler using grommets, and overall, it is a much more stable substrate although I still prefer the look and feel of paper.

My old site was . . . old.  I wanted to add new interactivity when it comes to my work.  I hope you find it more effective in some ways than my previous site.  Please let me know and thanks. – Shelby
