We’re set up for this weekend. Come on down as if the price was right! Lol.
Ok...so this piece was made entirely out of worn and .....wait.... lol 🤦🏾♂️... let’s try that again. So this piece started from an 8in x 15in piece of MDF board that I got from my bro Paulosky. Thickness is about 1in. I wanted to make a 3D koi pond at first. Look up resin koi pond and you’ll see where my head was. But anyways I’m so indecisive when creating a new piece. I’ll have a solid plan one min and then the next day I’ve totally changed my approach and subject 🤷🏾♂️. My homie Steve tagged me on FB a few weeks ago. The post was a contest for artist to submit Venom inspired artwork for the upcoming movie (which I’m super amped about on a sidenote). I missed the deadline which was on the 3rd. So that sucks. But I had a few reference photos on hand. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do a horizontal or vertical piece. I scrolled through some of the photos to see which one would fit best within these dimensions. Although some of this photo was cropped out, not much, it still looked cool within the space. I gridded out the MDF board. 1in squares all around. I digitally placed my reference photo in a grid on my phone (same measurements as the one sketched out). Using some precise hand eye coordination, I sketched the venom from my reference grid onto my MDF grid. This method is mostly used to ensure that eveything is in the right spot and proportional.
To be honest I was going to collage it at first but I had a mental flashback of me wanting to use clay. I asked my wife if we had clay anywhere cause 9/10 I don’t know where shit is 😂😂. Luckily my oldest son had some cheap clay that he just got on his Bday 😂. Sorry son, you were too late opening this 😂. I sketched Venom out and began to fill in the colors with the clay I stole 😂. Only this time I put a piece of parchment paper on top of my sketch so I could still see it and so the clay wouldn’t get dirty. Secondly parchment worked best because it goes into the oven once im done mapping it out anyway. It was my first time attempting this. My white clay got a lil dirty from the lead of my pencil 🤦🏾♂️. Other than that it was looking pretty cool regardless.
This is an 8in x 10in collaged Portrait of Cable. Made for my homie @jeremycantrell . The piece was made entirely out of worn and torn comic book scraps from my personal collection.
