Happy M-Day!

My wife asked me to do a drawing for our M-Day cards.  I wasn't sure that this was ever going to get done given our hectic lives right now.  I sat down the other night with a moment to draw and decided to take a crack at it. This is what came out.  I started with a loose sketch in Sketchbook Pro and painted some monochromatic values.  I then brought it into Photoshop where I converted the values into color and cleaned up the painting.  (I got a couple of random comments from companies because I spelled out M-day)

I love the super man cape! Who were you thinking about when you came up with the idea?

Brandon said...

The idea was entirely subconscious. It's not a physical representation of anyone I know. I suppose it was more about evoking a feeling.

Hi Brandon, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
Essex
SS0 9XD
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

Thanks, Brandon, for taking the time to tell me your secret! I think in anything we replicate, we somehow put our own "touch". I like your idea. Who's to say only the ones who can draw can do art? This way, everyone can do art and have the fulfillment you and I enjoy from it. I really appreciate your input. :)

Hmmm. This drawing is missing something that I can't put my...my finger on...it's...it needs....something--OH! You know what you need?! MORE TALENT!

(Sorry couldn't resist, old friend)

Seriously, I am in constant awe of what you do. Love all of it. Please post more and post more often!
