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.

I just wanted to tell you all how entirely grateful I am to have had the chance to learn from Jason Seiler on schoolism.com and he not just a great artist, father, husband, but he sincerely wants to see his students succeed! Thank You Jason for opening my eyes, telling me to calm down, see the shapes and at times squint my eyes!
Here are some samples below of Jason Seilers work!
I am sure most of you know that my history is based out of the Hip-Hop Culture where I became very involved in the culture in Gothenburg Sweden. I lived there with my mother from 1979-1989, and I had to leave the country when I was 18 years old, because I got caught for vandalizing graffiti art, crime, and drugs. My mother freak out and sent me to live with my Father and his new family in Tampabay Area in Florida, USA. I still live here with my wonderful wife of 18 years and my son Sean 13 years Old, and my two goldens Jack and Jill. I am planning on going back to visit Sweden this Summer and looking forward to it. I was commissioned to paint some b-boy type Caricatures of the main Dj’s, Mc’s, Breakers at an up comig re-union event in Gothenburg Sweden on November 23rd.Follow the OlSchoolGbg page on Facebook for more info. Flyer is being put together and will be shared on here soon.

Hello to all my friends, I am sorry I have not posted as much as I should be. I would like to share a another great blog writer and artist Chris Oatley and his experience at a Gustav Klimt exhibit “Gustav Klimt: The Magic Of Line featured a hundred face-meltingly awesome Klimt drawings”. Where he got inspired in Los Angeles California at his favorite art museum! When Chris got home he turned his notes into an awesome new blog post.
I can really relate to artist Gustav Klimt and his transition from more realistic work to his more symbolistic period. I also feel my work tends to lean in his direction of Symbols, linear, and expression of mood in my own work. Here some of his work! I love the fact he drew all the time!
Even though I have been having some real challenges with this project, the client Berkley Badger has been a true blessing, he has his certain visions and I believe we have together made what he has envisioned! I have had alot of up and downs as far as feeling thrilled about this project, but know when it is to a point where we are both happy, it is all worth it!. Most of the work has been spent on the crowd, which we went from really hellish type crowd to a more normal somber crowd. Most of the work was also spent in the value underpainting stage, the feet, hands and the crowd was the most time consuming, and then the coloring was added. The client wanted me to find photographs online to paste and use photoshop to paint into it and to make it all work. In traditional Illustration there as been artist using collages pasted in there work to make it a more real artsy look, and I believe that is what we have achieved? Here is the two final Illustrations and please make sure to watch the video I made with the vine of truth! I feel truly blessed to have the chance to help glorify God thru my talents! Peace out!
When it comes to this awsome guy all I can say is amazing! I have known him about 4 years, and he just grows on me. I always wanted to draw him and while I was waiting in church for my wife to get done with their youth group leaders meeting I saw a really great photo of him (sorry my battery died so I couldn’t take a picture of it, soo I mostly finished rendering him from memory) He is the youth leader at my church, and has become a great friend, I had other work I should have been working on but I just had to get to certain point with his sketch. I hope I can revisit this soon, but for now here is Lucas Hillman youth pastor at my church Grace Christian fellowship and great friend!
Good morning, here is a close up of a photoshop coloring I just did on top of another artist line work “Josh Mathus” (out of Europe). I was asked by my client from “Bass Angler Magazine” to color it and he is going to show recognition to both of us 🙂 I will share more once the magazine is out! Have a great day!
