Some interesting things to see in Chelsea

Here are a few Chelsea galleries I highly recommend visiting:

Dottie Attie: What Would Mother Say ?

This one is great for anyone who loves sequential stuff. Paintings and text, gender and politics.

Eric Fischl

Large paintings of Bulls. Human inhumanity.

Beth Cavener Stichter: On Tender Hooks

Gorgeous clay sculptures with a challenging commentary.

A whole bunch good painters; predominantly realists and impressionists, all worth a look.

Maya Gold

Abstracted paintings of actual settings. Psychological effect using scale.

Yao Lu: New Landscapes

Collaged photographs in the esthetic of traditional asian landscapes


I've also uploaded a few things to my blog:

Fashion Wars


this was for Marcos Chin's Fashion Illustration class. Cept it was due like a month ago and I decided to re-work it since I'm a million years behind in everything. poop on it for me please.

also I've been wicked lazy the past three days and every night for dinner I've had a chipotle burrito, this was me this morning in bed before I decimated my toilet.

Hello from 21st and 6th ave

Hello everyone, my name is Daniel and I am a grad student at the SVA MFA Illustration as a visual Essay program. I thought I would invade your blog with my non-sense, and my blend of creativity.

For Matthew Richmond's Digital Portfolio class, we had to take a quote from "The Medium is the Massage" by Marshall McLuhan, and turn it into a illustration.

I used to the quote, "Using Yesterday's Tools For Today's Job".

The Invisible Man

Hey everybody! This is a book cover I did for Tomer's portfolio class. Overall I'm pretty happy with it- the only thing I plan on doing is going back and making my own pattern for the wallpaper. Either drawing it by hand or in illustrator. We'll see.

Food for thought

Hey everyone,
I've been working on some new things for Marcos and Tomer, and upon my never-ending cruise on the internet during this I found these two digital artists whom I think some of you would love to see, if you haven't already. (More specifically Nate/Johnny/Ray)

Martin Ansin:
this guy seems really cool, I think a lot of his coloring is actually done in Illustrator, the details on a lot of it look almost 3d like they were done in Maya or something. He has a great "poster" like take on his images.


And this guy (he goes by the pen name of NOOK) who I found on, he actually does do half of his images in Maya/3d Studio and then renders them in photoshop. The illustrations he does are really interesting and have a great color/realistic sense to them. Sometimes a lot of his stuff is just floating in white space but I think thats more of his style then a lack of content thing. The one thing that bothers me is that when I look at his images I cant tell if the image is about the actual content or "feeling" hes trying to capture, or if it has become just about the tight realistic detail in his 3d environments and nothing else. I really am interested in how long it takes him to pull these off. I doubt he can finish an image with the 3d rendering for an editorial or anything short term. But then again who knows he could be a robot.

blah blah,
