I officially have a shop open for my artwork!

You can access it either through that link, or by clicking the “Shop” link at the top of my blog!

I’m still adding lots of images (I’ve only just begun), but feel free to look at the prints that I have up so far! I’ll give an update when I add new prints to the shop. I just finished off my older image "Eve" to make it print ready, and it’s available now!

Thank you to everyone who has supported my art thus far, and I look forward to offering more prints for you to own! <3

Two posters in acrylic that I made for the short film I’m working on, Let Dreams Lie. They’re way too big for a scanner, and I’m not so pro at taking photos of artwork yet… but hey, I tried! The Frankenstein is inspired by Tamara de Lempicka and Lynd Ward, and The Great Gatsby one is inspired by Erte. I found a lot a lot a LOT of love for these artists, and you should love them too!

I don’t think I ever uploaded these, so here they are! Finals from last semester, both depicting memories from making movies in high school. The top image is from the first period piece I ever attempted with the good grace of a $1000 scholarship from my school, Pretty. Dead. You can watch the old trailer here. :) The bottom image is from my first “major” film I ever made in high school, called The Eye Thief. You can watch the full movie here, though I’m just warning you now that it’s kinda long and totally silent. ;)

Yes, it was so long ago that I hadn’t really figured out youtube yet. lol

Both images are ink and conte crayon.

Prop beer label I made for the film I’m working on, Let Dreams Lie.

Photoshop, about 2-3 hours.

Let Dreams Lie is a science-fiction short film set in a parallel world. Dr. Getzler, the world’s first renowned Oneirologist, has developed a recreational machine that allows a person to control their dreams. Maya and Weston, a young and happy couple, are recruited as beta testers; but their relationship is challenged as their dream lives become more enticing than reality.”

Directed by Alek Sabin & Kody Riekena

Filming begins this August.

The brain guy is completed!!! I am pleased with how it turned out.

Brain progress. Next is outlining, labeling, then glossy topcoat. And then to paint the head itself!

Wip of a brain diagram prop I’m making for a short film. I can’t wait to paint and label it! :)

Question for my followers

How would you all feel if I started posting status update-like things here on my art tumblr, that may or may not be accompanied by pictures? They would involve both my art AND filmmaking, and would go something like this:

I’m going to be doing my first show selling prints! :D I’ll have a table at Steamfest in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 1st and 2nd. I’ll also be doing portraits and selling special exclusive steampunk prints! If you’re in the area you should come say hi!

Also, I have to contact locations for the short film I’m doing Cinematography/Art Department/location scouting/lots of jobs on. I’m super nervous, but also excited! I can’t wait to show you all progress on the film… we’re going to be submitting it to ~*SUNDANCE*~

AND I’m going to be published in NOVEMBER! More deets on this one when it gets closer. :3

So yeah. Yay? Nay? Is this stuff you all are interested in?
