    Jeffrey Alan Love - Portfolio Building Thread

    Hello everyone. I am a student in The Art Department's Career Mentorship Program based out of Richmond, VA, and am working on building my book cover portfolio through the program. Here are some examples of my work so far, and as I finish more as part of my work through TAD I will post them here. Thanks for looking!

    Such a wierd and cool coincidence my man, I was just browsing through your TAD blog and had saved your very awesome figure drawings/paintings. It was a breath of fresh air, and I was all like, man I have to check out more of this artists work, but I couldnt as I had to go out.
    And here you are posting away here your super cool works.


    About the works, they are indeed 5 star stuff, shows you might have been at illustration academy, showcasing nuances from works of sterling hundley, George pratt, Jon english..... But I will never think that is a bad thing. But after that your personality takes over.....the works become personal..... endearing.
    Man you are kicking ass, and you will go far....

    Much love.

    Thanks, Bhanu - I appreciate the kind words. I did attend the Illustration Academy, in 2008, and I helped out at the one in Richmond this past summer. I highly recommend it to anyone who can make it!

    Great Work Jeff!

    Hey Jeff-

    You are doing it right!

    Exploration is the thing that is going to make the difference in your work. I love to see your willingness to search for you. You have had access and been influenced by many fantastic artists, it is great to see you putting yourself on the line and developing into you! The Career Mentorship Program has been and will continue to be a place for artists to develop themselves and find a personal direction in their work.

    I love it!

    John

    John: Thank you for the encouragement! I know how lucky I am to be in this place, with these people, at this point in my career.

    Bhanu: I've been posting my figure drawings and sketchbook work over on the Sketchbook Forum - here's the link. I'm using this thread to only post work that I think might be a part of my portfolio. I have been doing a lot of work for TAD, but a lot of it has been exploration and experimentation and doesn't necessarily fit into my portfolio. I am working on some pieces now that will fit, though, and I will post them when complete. If anyone wants to see all of the work I've done through TAD, most of it is posted on my personal blog jeffreyalanlove.blogspot.com or TAD RVA's blog tadrva.blogspot.com. At the TAD RVA blog you can also check out work being done here at the Richmond POD by Sterling Hundley, Josh George, Edward Kinsella, Leslie Herman, and Jenna Chew - an amazing group of artists that I am lucky enough to work side by side with on a daily basis.

    Cover done for a comic book anthology. Five different artists with five different stories, so I used collage to try and show different things coming together to create a cohesive whole.

    For the morons that plague us with the same stupid question over and over and over...

    THIS...IS...ART...




    Do you begin to understand now?








    Jeffrey, lovely work. Keep going, keep playing, and keep giving us something to think about.

    No position or belief, whether religious, political or social, is valid if one has to lie to support it.--Alj Mary

    Thanks EllionV. They range in size from very small (4"x4" for the heads John English posted) to very large (22"x30"). The image you're asking about is a mixture of a lot of things, acrylic, watercolor, cardboard, construction paper ink, gouache, all done on various surfaces (illustration board, watercolor paper, bristol, regular printer paper), torn or cut up and collaged onto a board. It was a very intuitive piece, and I just grabbed whatever was at hand - having a deadline was probably the only way I was able to complete it!
