Iconography

Posted in Art, Misc, Paintings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2012 by josean

Various Icons on wood panels.  I started buying wood plaques for Free Art Fridays, since they tend to fare better in the outdoors (There was a tendency to rain after I put art out).  I started out with small 3 inch panels, and slowly moved up.  Some were done with a wood burning tools and paint markers, while the larger ones are acrylic and ink.

8.5×11 Icons- Ink and Acrylic

3×5 Icons- Paint markers

What started as a simple 1 layer stencil for a sticker (and possible wheat paste in the near future) turned into a 4 layer stencil I put on some canvas panels.  It’s been a while since I’ve worked with multi-layer stencils, which really makes me want to do some screen prints soon. It was a bit tough making sure the layers were lined up without any registration,  one of the reasons I’m selling these so cheap. Each one is unique and on an 8×10 canvas panel.  I’ll be making more variations, and custom color schemes are available upon request.

Heart Skulls

I made some new heart skulls on a bunch of 8×10 canvases I found in the trunk of my car.  I made the stencil on copy paper since I couldn’t find my transparency paper, and it has somehow held up.  We’ll see how many I can get down before the stencil calls it quits.

These and more skulls are available on Etsy.

Summer of the Skull

Posted in Art, Misc, Paintings with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2011 by josean

Summer’s on the way, which means one thing for me: 3 months off! Spring sprung up skulls back in my paintings, and I’m exploring new ways to work with them.  My backgrounds are more coherent, although there is still a bit of randomness and chaos.  I find it humorous the extent that color plays in my work, since about 6 years ago all my work was void of color.  I figured I’d get to it at my own pace, which happens to be perpetually late.

Here are 2 of my most recent paintings.  I’ll have prints available for sale in early June.  Boxy Skull prints now available! or wear it on a shirt

Although I plan to have a cohesive body of work, I don’t plan to limit what I paint.  I do plan to start offering commissioned work and portraits for a limited time.  If anyone is interested, feel free to email or message me through my Facebook page.

Lastly, the newest issue of Gigantic Sequins is coming out real soon (any day now).  This art and literary magazine will be featuring art by Jennifer Maidment, Joshua Gabriel, and a couple of my drawings, plus lots of literary goodness.  Issues will be available at select shops in Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia (other cities TBA), or you can order a copy through Gigantic Sequins.  Preorder now, and you’ll be automatically entered for their Welcome Summer Raffle, which offers ten multi prize packages you can win!  That’s ridiculous! Check out their site for details.

The Girls – Spring 2011

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2011 by josean

I just recently had my easter break (10 glorious days) which gave me the time and motivation to do some painting after a bit of a hiatus (work and some freelance stuff was taking up all my time). I’ve been working with oil markers a lot lately, and have been incorporating it more into my paintings. Although a bit tricky at first, I was able to utilize them to create a painterly effect with more control. This control allowed me to do what I’ve wanted with acrylic, to a point I am using very little of it. These paintings are mainly spray paint, oil marker, and masking fluid, built on layers in a more consistent manner than my previous paintings. At 25, this is my largest series yet, and it seems it may continue for bit more.
