    paintbook (TAD dump September 5)

    I cleaned this up a little ... If you want to see more recent work and more sketch work, jump to the last page

    (edit: My intro got eaten when I edited this entry, so here goes again...)

    My name is Jska, I as of September of 2007 I quit my job in retail and decided to go for it as a freelance illustrator and painter. I have a long ways to go though, and I am trying to improve my work ethic and technique... its a daily effort for me, that's for sure! I have a lot of reasons why I've decided to take art seriously, which are very personal, and if you'd like to know, just ask. This is what I want to do, it is my passion, and hopefully I'll get good enough to land a job in the industry some day.

    I am a local artist in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I participate in the local art scene as much as I can. I have been showing since June of 2007, and hope to keep going

    Your thoughts and comments and visits are much appreciated!!

    This is a 36" x 48" canvas I intend on covering with something by the time of my show. I've already completed the base washes of color I want to use as my underpainting in acrylic, and I covered that with clear gesso. I intend to do a combination of acrylic and oils on most of these pieces.

    where she is now...


    I've also been helping my friend Leah for her upcoming solo photography show at the Caramel Lounge in the Bellagio. I'm framing and matting all of her limited edition prints AND teaching her how to do it herself. (Every photographer should know how to frame and mount their own work! Any artist really.)

    And finally here's the show flyer I mustered up for our upcoming show in October. I'm super excited and scared and all that crap, but really I just hope it goes well.

    Thought I'd get a start on messing around with creatures before I dive into the 100 COW activity...

    I'm just wondering how that creature sounds like.
    Your "analogue" paintings are looking good so far.
    I'm gonna check back on this sketchbook later on, it seems nice so far

    damn lady, it's about effing time you resurrected your sb! Tho I gotta say, I didn't realize how much had happened between last December and now to get you to where you are. What a way to take a tragic event and not only create something awesome in your friend's honor, but to also let it shape the way you view your own life and future as an artist, as well as the way it has pushed you to be incredibly productive... it's truly inspiring.

    Those paintings are looking good so far as well. Nice stuff. I can't wait to see more... I'm faving you.

    More studio work!

    Alrighty kiddies, just a few random shots taken today... there will be more later tonight (or morning - whatever) as we just (!) did a coffee and redbull run. Living next to a 7-11 is dangerous... (in more ways than one really!)

    Anyway!

    This is the 2 panel piece I'm working on. His face has been bothering me all freaking day, and I just now think I've got it going where I want it to. The tightest parts of my pieces are all the facial expressions, and that's where the light and focus needs to be - so its important for me to get it down just right before proceeding to the oils stage. I will probably be knocking out the entire linework stage tonight. I'll post that stuff later.

    Annnnd there's a studio shot of my little area I've been working in. The entire bottom floor of our house is entirely studio space. When its clean(er) I will post more pics. We've got a pretty good little studio running!

    Getting housemates/artists to clean is a whole 'nother story.

    I leave you with some NEWS - I have a solo art show at the TAO nightclub here in Vegas for November 28th... I will be showing 12 new paintings total as well as LIVE PAINTING (eep!) in front of locals and tourists alike. Should be pretty interesting and hopefully it will open up other opportunities for me and my friends.

    Until later...

    more more more

    So I got into the line work a bit more but couldn't resist fixing the damn FACE - but now I am satisfied so I'll probably go back to the line work tomorrow. Just a few shots of where I left off for tonight:

    And last but not least we have my amazing Genesis Oil palette. Genesis oils are heat set oils - which means I can do a bazillion layers a day without having to wait. I just ZAP it with a heat gun and voila! Ready to work over! They handle differently than traditional oils, but for time issues these oils are my paint of choice

    Until tomorrow... which is also when I'll get back to the replies!

    For now.. sleep

    You have beautiful work, and thank you heaps for showing us the process and photos of your work area, it's very cool to see the creation of a painting. Love the paintings progression and your little COW's, keep up the good work, and good luck with all your goals.

    A pic of my palette of golden acrylics - my fave brand. Their pigment load is amazing and they aren't gummy like liquitex (imho) ... these are what i make my backgrounds with mostly. A lot of transparent colors in my selection, I don't use opaque colors too often... probably because I tend to work in glazes.

    And just so this post isn't completely artless, a doodle before bed of some grouchy guy smoking a cigarette.

    Oh and replies!

    Nistarn - thank you!

    Metal Mike - thank you as well!

    Diphallia - I was actually going to name him "squawker" - its prolly more of a honk really

    Janae! Thank you lady! I still think we should start an SSG of some sort. Also: Seattle is gonna effing rock this year! pld:

    Puck: Thank you sir! I plan to post more progressives. I'm self taught so documenting how I get somewhere is important to me... so I'm glad you appreciate the pics!

    Thanks guys! Hope you dig!
