I got a quick job to make a coloring page for  a fellow entertainer Magic Suzy and her husband Joshua Seth. I might be simple but still fun to help other fellow artist!

Here is a testimonial I received from them today: 

“Lars was able to take a promotional photo of me and turn it into a fun b&w line drawing. He was easy to work with and even did a requested revision without complaint. What a pro!”

Creative Hands revisited

I was looking thru old sketches and found this old creative sketch of some hands, my best friend Christopher Ratcliffe, and some other odd things. Here is the sketch from 1990-94 time at Ringling College of Art and Design.

I now had to play around with Photoshop and thought I would reawaken what I used to like to draw!

Here is my brain storm on the class:

Name: “Start your week out learning Art-Tainment (Caricatures) with Lars”
Short Description:

Week 1: First thing I will be all set up for a retail style Caricature booth with display and all. I would then draw a demonstration off a photo reference received from other fellow artist. I will have the drawing recorded and to be projected on a screen projector. They can observe the 5-7 quick Caricature in Black and white, and then another 5- minutes to add the color. I will then ask them to draw each other on the spot, get to know each other, and also so I can see the level of the students. The rest of the day talk history, foundations, and other links to references. Assignment is to do a value chart, draw shapes with shading in a medium of choice

week2: Have all your own sketch book to take notes, and sketch in to share with teacher. Importance of seeing shapes, squinting, sketching  from a photographs or the fellow student in front of you, critiques will be done with trace over lays by Lars.

week3: Demonstrate Traditional mediums, digital medium Caricatures and tricks in photshop for studio Caricatures. Home work continue to work on studio Caricature off a photo of a famous person or from photos supplied of my choosing. I will also be working a studio piece that you will be able to follow as the students work on there own work. Your final art work will be due at end of the month for grading.
week 4: I will continue to share news about the feild, share personal stories, work on private commissions right in the class that you will be able to along with, ask questions, while following my steps. You will be working on your final assignment in class, followed by me critiquing the Caricature art with a trace over lay or in photoshop showing pointers on how to improve. I encourage all my students to continue to keep me in the loop of your progress even after the class is over, but the further along you take the class with me the more advanced and harder the courses will be!

Creative Life

I have been in the dumps and was very over whelmed by alot of last minute work, but what really cheered me up was this old note I received from Regan Dunnick which was my proffessor in my portfolio class during my senior year at Ringling College of Art and Design. Well is was very motivating, and us artist always need direction.
