Tales of Love Through Art

2013-02-14T09:52:16.575-08:00

Today is the day many are celebrating, LOVE, Valentines Day. I'd like to share some of history's famous works of art depicting LOVE.Let's start off with one of my favorite sculptures by Antonio Canova. It is a partial depiction from the "Tale of Cupid and Psyche" by ApuleiusA love story that has inspired and been reworked in today's more modern tales, such as Beauty & the Beast.Words can't express my awe for this sculpture. The way the figures twist/bend/touch, it's so life-like you can see the movement! I only have images to share with you all, but imagine viewing this in person and appreciating all angles of the figures. It comes ALIVE! Psyche Revived by the Kiss of Amor (Love). Antonio Canova (Italian, 1757–1822) Marble, 1793.Below is for all the Music Lovers out there that swoon for a great LOVE song ... (This being more of a sad love song, if you are familiar with the story).The Greek Tale of Orpheus and Eurydice.I enjoy the story more than I do most the art and sculptures that depict the couple, but here you go: Titian (Tiziano Vecellio), Orpheus and Eurydice,  (Italian, Pieve di Cadore ca. 1485/90?–1576 Venice)Don't look back, and move forward in life, love, & happiness...Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Orpheus Leading Eurydice from the Underworld, 1861I wonder if any musician has tried to recreate their own version of the tune played by Orpheus that made the Gods and Nymphs weep...Arno Breker, Orpheus and Eurydice, 1944To finish off this blog post, of Love in Art, I leave you with a painting I have adored since seeing it in a romantic calendar as a child.Frank Bernard Dicksee, La Belle Dame Sans Merci, circa 1902...and the Poem by Keats that this painting is based upon:John Keats (1795–1821). La Belle Dame Sans Merci O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms! So haggard and so woe-begone? The squirrel’s granary is full, And the harvest’s done. III.I see a lily on thy brow With anguish moist and fever dew, And on thy cheeks a fading rose Fast withereth too. IV.I met a lady in the meads, Full beautiful—a faery’s child, Her hair was long, her foot was light, And her eyes were wild. V.I made a garland for her head, And bracelets too, and fragrant zone; She look’d at me as she did love, And made sweet moan. VI.I set her on my pacing steed, And nothing else saw all day long, For sidelong would she bend, and sing A faery’s song. VII.She found me roots of relish sweet, And honey wild, and manna dew, And sure in language strange she said— “I love thee true.” VIII.She took me to her elfin grot, And there she wept, and sigh’d fill sore, And there I shut her wild wild eyes With kisses four. IX.And there she lulled me asleep, And there I dream’d—Ah! woe betide! The latest dream I ever dream’d On the cold hill’s side. X.I saw pale kings and princes too, Pale warriors, death-pale were they all; They cried—“La Belle Dame sans Merci Hath thee in thrall!” XI.I saw their starved lips in the gloam, With horrid warning gaped wide, And I awoke and found me here, On the cold hill’s side. XII.And this is why I sojourn here, Alone and palely loitering, Though the sedge is wither’d from the lake, And no birds sing. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY ALL[...]



Character Portraits for Draca Wards Saga

2013-01-21T12:59:04.267-08:00

Hello!

I have been real busy working on the 3rd book cover for The Draca Wards Saga. I have also been working on character portraits for the Fantasy Saga.

I decided to work on the FEMALE characters first :)
Not because I favor them more...maybe just a little GIRL POWER!

Actually, in that vain, the author B. Pine is a part of a blog tour called Heroines with Heart. They are focused on books with strong female leads, so I decided to do the portraits of the main lead females found in author B. Pines fantasy saga first.

I was very excited and decided to do Megan as the very first portrait. For those of you who have not read the 1st installment, FAMILIAR ORIGINS, of the Draca Wards Saga here is a quick synopsis:

Megan is a redheaded druid who leaves her commune to live with her father and study the healing arts at the Academy's college, Somatica.  She is so talented in magic and quarterstaff combat that she often gets herself in trouble.


I'd like to introduce you all to Megan



Stay Tuned for the next Female Portrait! 

Coming Soon...who could it be??? Jania? Galen?...you'll just have to wait and see.

The Kathleen F. Marks Memorial Foundation

2012-12-13T15:20:14.174-08:00

I'd like to take some time and introduce you all to a wonderful Not-for-Profit organization I have donated my talents to. I'll also share some work I have done for them this past year.Founded by Crystal Marks-Schwer & Isis Marks-Kline, the KFM foundation is looking to help fund any and all active cancer research facilities. As they like to say, "We HATE all cancer equally and will contribute our funding to research of ANY type without discrimination."Crystal and Isis are sisters, and started this foundation in the name of their late mother, Kathleen F. Marks. Their mother Kathleen was diagnosed with cervical cancer back in 1997. She was strong and reached remission twice in her battle, but sadly past away October, 11 2001. With the love and support of friends and family they were determined to start a foundation to help cancer patients and their families in financial need get the information and funding needed. This dream finally came true in 2011, when the KFM Foundation was finally accepted/approved as a 501 C(3) Not-for-Profit Organization. They now hold many local events and fundraisers throughout the year in Westchester County, NY. These events help fund cancer research, testing, trials, and vaccines. The foundation will also help cancer patients and their families in financial need through these fundraising efforts and/or grants on an individual basis. KFM will keep an open line of communication with local cancer treatment centers, doctors, and other charitable organizations in the area who choose to participate. Candidates would be referred to the foundation through a treating medical professional. KFM will host an individualized fundraising event for these individuals, with their involvement as well as their families. The proceeds for their fundraising event will benefit the patients. Ultimately, their goal centers on finding a cure and helping patients and families in this pursuit.Their biggest event, and sure to be the most looked forward to annual event, The Masquerade Ball was a hit this past October 2012. Who can resist a ball with fire dancers, rope dancers, masks, and gowns to raise money for the fight against cancer! Just looking at some of these pictures will make YOU want to attend next years event.Here are just a few pics of the event. You can see more on their Facebook Page, link below:                               To learn more about The Kathleen F. Marks Foundation visit these links below:KFM URL PageKFM FacebookKFM Donation PageHelp spread the word of KFM and share this Foundation with others. As their motto goes:Below are some samples of the work I have created for them. I am so happy to donate my time and talent to this organization and hope to do more for them in the future! [...]

Finished Map of Tuanth for the 'Wolf Lord Saga'

2012-07-07T16:22:47.509-07:00

Here is the finished Map Art I completed recently. This was a digital creation with some scanned in sketches using Illustrator & Photoshop. I hope to create some more with ink and watercolor in the future. I am in love with creating maps. Look for more to come.



Creation of the Tuanth Map Art

2012-07-07T16:15:36.629-07:00

I just recently finished a project with a new Client on a Map Design for his fantasy story 'The Wolf Lord Saga' Creating a Map of a fictional land may sound like a simple task because there is no worry for any cartographic mistakes, but I must disagree to a point. To be described a fictional land, especially one so detailed and planned out by an author is beyond stressful, due to the fact that there is a need for absolute correctness in placement & distance for the reader to draw a accurate correlation between the story and the illustration. I was happy and lucky to work with an author with which I shared such a rapport. It helped with completion of the art in a timely manner. Below I will share some images of the stages of creation of the Map. Above is a collage of preliminary sketches trying to distinguish layout/shape/design. It is important to have great communication and understanding with the Author to have the ability to project their world out on paper. Above are samples of texture and coloring. We still hadn't decided on the continent shape. Above is the Stage right before the finished Map. Only a few Changes were made to the final Map which I will show in a new Post. I did a lot of research of maps and I think I'm in love. I have created a map before, but now after doing a second its growing on me. Maps are freaking Gorgeous! Expect to see an explosion of Maps to come from yours truly.



HAPPY 236th BIRTHDAY AMERICA

2012-07-04T13:13:35.093-07:00

In honor of todays 4th of July, I will be posting some great paintings of American History: Lets Start off with Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware Lets Start off with the above Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware Some Facts: The very original painting was created in 1850 but was destroyed by a bombing raid in Germany in 1942. Leutze had painted another version, the one seen above, in 1850, which is 12 by 21 feet, and is now displayed at the Metroplotian Museum of Art in New York City. John Trumbull's famous painting Trumbull's Declaration of IndependenceSome Info in Artist: Trumbull was born in Lebanon, Connecticut, in 1756, to Jonathan Trumbull, who was Governor of Connecticut from 1769 to 1784, and his wife Faith {Robinson} Trumbull. He entered the 1771 junior class at Harvard University at age fifteen and graduated in 1773. Due to a childhood accident, Trumbull lost use of one eye, which may have influenced his detailed painting style. As a soldier in the American Revolutionary War, Trumbull rendered a particular service at Boston by sketching plans of the British works, and witnessed the Battle of Bunker Hill. He was appointed second personal aide to General George Washington, and in June 1776, deputy adjutant-general to General Horatio Gates. He resigned from the army in 1777. Paul Revere OR Henry Pelham The Bloody MassacreThe engraved for print image was distributed and Credited to Paul Revere, but Henry Pelham a known artist and engraver then argued plagiarism, and that a work in progress by he himself was rendering of the Boston Massacre, had been recreated and engraved by Paul Revere. Read the actual article from the Boston Gazette Monday, March 12, 1770: Another John Trumball paintingThe Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker HillEnglish artisans refused to engrave Death of General Warren because it glorified an American victory, so Trumbull, with the help of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, produced an engraving on the Continent. Probably because the work's theme offended English sensibilities, the engraving was a commercial failure. Two copies of the print now hang in the Adams family “Old House” at the Adams National Historical Park, gifts from the artist to John Quincy in 1826 I'll end this post with a recent painting created in 1975 shown above. Arnold Friberg's "The Prayer at Valley Forge," A depiction of George Washington at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in prayer on his knees beside his horse Nelson at the Continental Army's encampment, during the terrible winter of 1777-1778. The legendary story was told by a local Quaker Tory named Isaac Potts, who said he spied George Washington praying fervently in the woods alone during one of the bleakest times of the war for the Americans. Hope you enjoyed this post. Happy 4th of July my fellow Americans.[...]



Leo & Diane Dillon

2012-05-29T15:49:03.459-07:00

It is sad to hear of the passing of Leo Dillon today. I sadly never had the opportunity to meet Leo or his wife Dillon, but I was well educated on their art and career.
I was going to write about my time at Balticon this weekend, but I would rather talk and introduce you all to who Leo Dillon was.
Of course you can not mention Leo without his wife Diane. Leo & Diane Dillon are a household name in the art and publishing world. The Dillons have created a vast collection of art consisting of drawings, illustrations for prints, book jackets, textbooks, album covers, and children's books. They have been honored with
2 Caldecott Medals for 'Ashanti to Zulu' & 'Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears'
4 New York Times Best Illustrated Awards
4 Boston Globe/Horn Book Awards
2 Coretta Scott King Awards
3 Coretta Scott King Honors
& a Society of Illustrators Gold Medal

Now that is a list of accomplishments to be in awe of. It's unfortunate to accept that this is the end of a loving creative partnership/marriage and can only hope his wife Diane finds solace.

If you are not familiar with the Art of Leo&Diane Dillon please 'GOOGLE' now and go to your public library or local bookstore to admire their work.

Limit Break Studios - Life After Pride

2012-05-06T12:19:48.925-07:00

Hi All! I wanted to talk about some work-for-hire art that I have been creating for LIMIT BREAK STUDIOS.I love taking on side projects especially when it allows me to do different style work than I normally do. It helps streanthen the creative palette, I feel. I have many years of experience Vectorizing designs/logos/text/& art So this job suits my abilities. Limit Break Studios is a new and growing company, that has hired me to help vectorize and prep some character designs & props for animation. They are working on a very vulgar (not suited for the easily offended or kids) adult animation called 'Life After Pride'I think many people will relate especially in this economic crisis to the shows theme of a young man laid off and having to move back home with family and surrounded by friends of similar outcomes with dissapointing lives. Its Rude Offensive Vulgar Suggestive and everything us young adults would love to veg out to in front of the couch. Attached is an example of what I do. I recieve some concept art from an artist and I have to recreate it in vector with color palette and movable joints for the animators. This is a spin around example of the character Principle Wally along with the initial sketch sent to me. Its currently in the early stages of production, but I must say its fun Designing some of these wacked out characters. You can even check out there promo episode on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rHDImMxedU Stay on the Look Out for "Life After Pride" created by Daniel LaRussa www.limitbreakstudios.com Get to know some of the characters on Twitter @ROIDO245 , @DAVE_LIMITBREAK , @CHIP_LIMITBREAK
