Joan Jett, 1981, graphite, acrylic, oil on illustration board
More early work in the form of portraits. While at Art Center I was experimenting with acrylics and oils and the lethal Krylon Crystal Clear layering technique where wet oils could be painted over quickly creating a dynamic transparency between the glazes.
Model, 1982, graphite, acrylic, oil on illustration board
This technique worked well and after sanding the art down many times and painting again over it I built up a fine textured surface.
Philip Burke, 1983, graphite, acrylic, oil on illustration board
When I moved to New York I start creating portraits of up and coming illustrators. Philip Burke was one of them. He is still making awesome art. There will be some great close ups of this art in the book.
Winston Churchill, 1981, graphite, oil on illustration board
This was a fun piece swishing that wet juicy paint around. Yummy!
