Iron Giant street art

Iron Giant street art

This was my latest chalk street art painting done in December 2017. I participated in the Tempe Festival of the arts chalk art for the last three events. This event had a sponsor and created a theme of the event called “if I were a giant” to match their media campaigns.

We have three days from 8-5 to work on our art. I completed mine 4 hours before the deadline.

As I was working on my art people couple walk around and watch us and there were so many people that remembered the Iron Giant being one of their favorite shows or they just watched it or they grew up watching that show. I thought it was a big hit.

For this event, we are asked to submit a sketch of our idea. the first theme was “winter in Arizona so the following sketch I submitted was drawn on the iPad pro using Procreate. then a sponsor changed the theme at the last minute. the next two sketches were done for the new theme.

Vintage Race Car Painting

Vintage Race Car Painting

This is 24 x 36 inches acrylic on canvas.

This was part of an idea that I had a while back where I wanted to do a bunch of various car-related art in different media as the body of work to present to galleries. in my search for photos to paint I found this one(shown). So I repurposed a painting I was working on. you can see the old painting beneath for a hot second. I created the video to show the progress. I try to take a picture after each session of work. If there is not much to see I don’t take a picture.

I still am considering doing a body of vintage racecar art. I am going to create each piece in different media. one charcoal, one watercolor, one in oil, one in black and white. one very abstract.

The race car street art was done when I had this idea in my head and thought it would be cool to do a racecar related piece in that format.
