My name is Ken. During the day I'm a Matte Painter and Concept Artist on feature films. In the evenings and on weekends (when I have them) I sketch and do scattered Illustration work.
I don't get to take my work home with me. The NDAs in the industry are extremely strict and the images I complete are often filed away for an extremely long time.
This has created a huge desire in myself to do as much personal work as possible.
A lot of my current stuff is done at the ol' coffee shop or Starbucks on my way home from the office.
For my movie stuff I have a matte painting section at my website www.kenmccuen.com
My weapons of choice are pencil, ballpoint pen, and watercolors. ... usually in a moleskine, or on bond paper for sketching.... rag/print-making paper, graphite, oils, watercolor, and/or digital for my finals.
I used to do a lot of pen sketching on the train to work... it made a lot of drawing look like it was created during a mild earthquake.
Some of the stuff below is pretty old (latter part of art school)... go page 7 and 8 of my sketchbook for more current stuff.
Thanks for taking a look,
