The other day I had a chance to finally finish a new collage – this fox portrait. I also was able to make another time lapse video, which was a lot of fun to put together:
What’s actually a little amusing is that for the previous time lapse videos I made, I used to sit underneath a tripod that held the video camera, trying with all my might not to bump into it while working on the collage. With this one, I realized I can just film the whole process upside down, then flip it when I edit the video. That way I’m free of working under a tripod. In the future, I’d also like to work on using better lighting for these to make it easier to see my process.
Animals are one of my favorite subjects to tackle when it comes to piecing together my collages. Here’s a piece where I was commissioned to collage a dog that has two different color eyes. I’m thinking my next couple of collages will involve some more wildlife.
In other news, I’m planning to get started with exploring a couple different mediums. As much as I enjoy making collages, it’s always good to change things up every once in a while.
After relaunching my portfolio site, I’ve finally had some time to make some new artwork. This is the first eagle portrait I’ve ever done, and it was interesting tackling an animal portrait after spending so many weeks immersed in coding websites and not making artwork.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to make a new work of art – life has been keeping me busy! Earlier this year I went through a coding bootcamp, and recently I moved to Maryland, so needless to say, life has kept my hands full. However, I finally had a chance to put the finishing touches on this little guy. I definitely plan to start making more collages soon.
I’ve made quite a few bird-related collages over the years, but this is definitely the first time I’ve tackled a duck portrait. Seems like I’ve made it a habit to make animal portraits these past couple of years. I really do enjoy animal compositions, although I feel like I should start exploring some landscape/cityscapes again, as well as possibly still life. Sometimes it’s good to change things up.
Beagles are one of my all-time favorite kind of dog, so of course I had to go and make a beagle portrait. However, I also really like corgis, although I have yet to make a corgi collage. Perhaps that will be the subject for my next piece…
Here’s my first attempt at doing a close-up portrait of a giraffe. I’ve always thought that giraffes are strange-looking animals. They definitely don’t look like they belong on planet Earth, but some other place in outer space. From their long necks to their unusual ossicones that looks like horns, everything about them seems like it came from another planet. Hence the title of this piece – which I definitely enjoyed coming up with.
I have a tendency of tackling dog collages all of the time, so I thought it was time to change things up a bit and make a cat collage. When I completed this piece, I realized the cat definitely looked like he had a bit of attitude – hence the title.
