It’s been a productive couple of months, and the result is a bunch of new original artwork!
In the month of October, I produced 22 original drawings as part of the #inktober challenge. However, my busy schedule kept me from being able to complete one for all 31 days of the month as the challenge required. Still, I am very happy with the results!
In addition to that challenge, I have new pieces out, including my Ghost – Pray for Babylon piece and my Journey Back From Oz painting! I do have prints of both of these, and will be listing the originals VERY soon!
With that said, I also decided to focus on creating smaller pieces, and have started doing 5″x7″ original paintings and framing them! My first three originals are now available! Here are some of my newest pieces:
I created the Loudest Whispers Collection as a result of being a child from a broken home.
Each piece in this collection reflects the turmoil, hurt and tragedy that follows the children who grow up in such conditions. I have quite a few mental hangups as a result of everything I have gone through growing up, and from trying to unsuccessfully break away from the stigma my past has all caused. It left me a broken soul. I can never adequately convey the depression and hurt or confusion I feel in the written word, or in conversation, and I feel deep shame for ever bringing it up to the ones I love most. If I can’t communicate that way, then I hope I can do so through the use of my art. Hence the name of this collection. Instead of whispering to myself about what I am going through, I can use my artwork to be my voice and tell a story.
I hope you enjoy these pieces. They reflect the extremes of hope, pain, hurt, and never giving up.
I just wanted to share with you my finished Danaerys Targaryen piece! I arrived late to the Game of Thrones party, but fell in love with the show since I started watching it. I have a few more pieces from the show in mind to start working on, but for now, please enjoy this one!
It’s been a while since I posted on here. Been real busy with the day job, and have been steadily working on something either art-wise or printing-wise! A lot of work went into getting everything together for my fellow artists attending Phoenix Comicon this past weekend, and now I finally have a bit of time to recover and get some things updated that were long overdue! I’m on the wait list for that show, so I am hoping to be able to exhibit there one day. Now I am getting ready for the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con!
I added my newest piece, Video Kid, to the store. I also managed to sell out of my #hiptobesquare Art Book! I’m thrilled I managed to get all my copis of that book into other people’s hands!
The weather hasn’t been too kind to me lately in terms of selling outdoors, so the past few months have been a bit rough. However, next week is Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con, and it should be a great time and I’m hoping I’ll do well! I’ll be sharing a booth (Booth #620) with the ever awesome Squee-Queen April Reyna! She’s such a dear friend who allowed me the opportunity to share her space with me.
We’ll also be traveling in style, as I managed to finally get a road-worthy vehicle! I acquired a 2008 GMC Envoy SUV, so the travel will be comfortable and accommodating for more than one person!
Make sure to stop by and see April and I next weekend, and pick up some art from us! Hope to see you there!
I figured my Beetlejuice needed a companion, so this weekend I started work on his reluctant almost-bride, and began painting Lydia Deetz! I think she’s the newest favorite of my Tim Burton Collection! I’m rather happy with how she came out, and I will be adding this to my Store here real soon!
Man, it’s been a while since I had the opportunity to post on here! It’s been a bit of a rough patch for myself, with horrible luck trying to buy a car, find a new place to live, and find space and time to create.
So I decided to start a newsletter to help share more about my artwork and the stories behind it!
Lately, I’ve been feeling like I have a problem reaching out to people through social media. I have a limited appearance schedule, and want to be able to tell the stories to my fans I want to tell about the meaning behind my work, and the direction I want to take everything as an artist. I want to showcase my inspiration and what drives me to keep doing what I do. This newsletter will be the best outlet for that!
I’ll be offering INSANE deals on prints, original artwork, and pieces that will be exclusive to AyeDee Studio Newsletter subscribers only. So sign up today!
Look, it’s ONLY 3 measly boxes you have to fill out, and then you’ll be up to date and in the know!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to First Friday! Another record-setting show for AD Studio! I ran out of cards, and just started writing my contact info on the back of some prints! ‘Tis the season for giving 🙂
