In keeping with the blog redesign and the online transition of Bond: Unprofessional Doodler (just fooling around) to Bond: Amateur Artist (on the track towards professionalism), I have created a new professional-looking portfolio! Click here to check it out!
The portfolio is hosted (free!) through deviantArt, and I am quite pleased with the results. Having had an account with dA for a few years, I found it very easy to organize and transfer images. If anyone is interested, my deviantArt profile is here.
I am currently working on a few things:
- a coral reef painting - a large piece to hang above the fireplace, full of colourful coral, fish, and invertebrates! I have had this image in my head since scuba diving in the Philippines, of slowly drifting towards the edge of a reef and peering down the wall into the dark depths... The painting is still in the initial stages; the reef has been sketched and the background ocean blue has been painted. Stay tuned for updates, as I am quite excited about this one...
- an ichthyosaur piece for ART Evolved - one month until the very exciting Ichthyosaur Gallery, and I haven't even started a piece yet. My plan is to sketch simple outlines and then digitally colour it using the same photoshop technique I used on the spinosaur. I just need to decide on a subject - which genera of ichthyosaur?! Perhaps I will get inspired before the AE liveblogging session in a few days! Remember, you too can join in the liveblogging!
- a playbill poster for Players 99 - Back in 1999, the acting group I belong to (SMP Dramatic Society) put on a cabaret show, and the SMP producers have asked me to create a poster for the archives. I preformed Monty Python's Bookshop Sketch and sang a Cherry Poppin' Daddies swing dancing song, while a couple swang danced. Uh, swung danced? Danced swingingly???
