I have a WIP pic of the Palin peace but I'd rather finish it before I upload it here.

Check out the stencil/sticker work I did though. This is my first attempt at spraying onto stickers but I'm happy with the results. This isn't the best picture and the crap lighting + clear coat makes the black look a little "iffy" but it looks like a solid layer of black in person.

I'd love some feedback on this work though. Again, most of what I post here is my hobby art and styles I'm trying to develop, but I'll show a few examples of my work for school and what-not.

And here's a little of that. It's all my work for a media layout class, logo done in illustrator, the rest of this 8.5x11" design in photoshop. If it's not obvious yet, I fucking love the rising sun effects.

More street art stuff. Some of my black pigeon lithographic prints on newsprint. You can see the ones I cut out and the stack I still needed to cut. I'm kind of pissed that the stone I had this etched into got ruined, so I can't print anymore exactly like this.

The newsprint is thin enough for these to be wheat-pasted and last a while.

Another stencil sticker. I designed the stencil with more detail but cutting it this small meant losing a lot of that and bridging more gaps just to keep a little strength in the stencil itself. It's a 3 layer, and if I feel motivated and confident that I could get rid of it once it's finished, I might do it poster-board size on canvas, but I don't want to waste the time, effort, and money if it's just going to sit.

I have a few more ideas I want to put on canvas, really grunging and abstracting topics. I really try not to work with pop bullshit that any joker can pull out a stencil of, but I got bored at work and made the design and felt like cutting and spraying something. I promise to be more original, whatever that means in this day and age.

I took a lithIography class last semester, but I think you can find limestone in a few places... Flea markets, art vendors, people who specialize in it. The press would be harder to find, I would think, but if your art class has one available you should jump on that. Printing is a pretty crazy thing to get into. Most people will never do it in their lives, but it's convenient if you're into certain things.

This was a modeling project for sculpture class a year or so ago. This wasn't my first experience working with clay, but it was my first time working with sculpey and trying to model a figure. It was an alter-ego project and I went for a cyberpunk theme.

Here's one of the hind-end. The finished version has a gun and a base with it but I must not have pictures of that part yet.

Spray paint and hand painting from a while back when I was altering over the spray to make into something recognizable. Thus, the planet eater was born. If I could go back with some of these pieces, I think I'd rather have the backgrounds alone.

Colors are a little off in the picture. It's more of a hot pink that works better with the boobs. This is ink and paint on the back of a Strathmore pad cover

Eat really irks me when fellow stencil artists call themselves street artists because they're using a style they typically see from people like Banksy and Fairey. Spraying a stencil on a canvas makes you no more of a street artist than strumming a guitar makes me a rock star.

I like that one, looks like a tree root (I think it is).

Unfortunately, the sentence you wrote "Ceci n'est une mur" does not work.
It's kind of awkward like saying "This is not wall" , and you used the feminine form for a masculine word. Correct saying would have been "Ceci n'est pas un mur".

Sorry, I hard to correct it >_<

Damn that free translator! Well luckily I'm not French either, so it works for me. It translated n'est as "not" and pas as "not" so I left one out for the sake of balance. As long as it's readable that's good, broken as it may be. I didn't even think to account for the feminine/masculine part of the language. Thanks for letting me know though, for sure. I wish I'd have taken the time to ask a French speaking person ahead of time.

Did this today experimenting with sticker design.. Not the design so much as the colors. And apparently facebook has problems properly displaying squares.
