Playing Arts is a collective art project that gathers designers and illustrators from all over the world
with an idea to express their vision of an ordinary playing card using personal styles,
techniques and imagination.
Each deck they print is full of amazing art by artists from all over the world.
Please go vote for my artwork to be included in their soon to be printed Special Edition deck.
Here is a look into my working process. I started this one with a pencil drawing on Canson XL watercolor paper. Then I scanned the finished drawing into photoshop and added all the color, typography and details to make this one really shine.
In May of 2016 I was fortunate enough to be invited to take an art camp trip to Yellowstone National Park with Light Grey Art Lab. Light Grey is an amazing group of, super talented folks from Minneapolis, MN. They put on some fantastic residencies and camps every year. When I saw they were going to Yellowstone I had to go! I met so many great artists and did allot of sketching, but the view was so incredible, it was hard to put my camera down. Here are a few of my favorite photos from out trip.
THE CARVING TREES
On our first day we came across this little grove of birch trees. Although I would never carve my own name, I found it fascinating to see all these human marks superimposed on the lush green backdrop.
YELLOWSTONE HD WALLPAPERS
I was captivated with the gigantic variety of textures in Yellowstone National Park.
Here are 5 FREE Wallpaper texturesfor you to enjoy as your desktop backdrop!
Of course we had to see the famous geyser that started it all. Old Faithful was definitely cool,
but there was this adorable old couple taking selfies and celebrating their wedding anniversary
that stole the show for me.
