Free Friday: New Drawings

8 Jun 2013 12:55am

It is already Saturday here on this late evening/early morning in South Central Texas, and am up burning the midnight oil for a hot-deadline for one of my bride-clients. While her wedding signage is printing, I thought I would take this opportunity to call it a Free Friday with new drawings I have been working on since my previous post about working in a new direction for my fine art portfolio. (Prepare for many photos again!) I know I mentioned staying away from the “trends” in art these days (i.e. drawing girls, unicorns with arrows, animal bones and skulls, antlers, etc.) but wouldn’t you know, when I just “let myself go”… I naturally gravitated towards just about all of the above. Hm, well… minus the arrows and skulls…

The ‘top secret’ series I mentioned in my previous post, was inspired by the World Wildlife Fund, and their work in saving the critically endangered wildlife of the world. I was inspired to help raise awareness in the fight for their survival.

It has been fun to experiment and try new styles… I get inspired, draw it, and then hopefully over time, perfect it. If you have an Instagram account, you can find me at JBishopStudios, which has recently sort of “blown up” with kind words and feedback. This is just for my fine art though, you won’t find any of my stationery, card, wedding work there…

Louisville, Kentucky City Skyline

7 Jun 2013 9:00am

The city of Louisville, is the largest in the state of Kentucky. When I was commissioned to draw the city skyline last month, I immediately knew I had to draw the skyline with the Ohio river in the foreground…complete with the Belle of Louisville, the oldest Mississippi-style steamboat in operation in the United States!

Along with the city center, I wanted to make sure and capture at least one of the major bridges connecting the states of Kentucky and Indiana together over the river!

Shanghai Skyline Wedding Invitations

4 Jun 2013 9:30am

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of working on a beautiful wedding invitation set for a client getting married in Shanghai, China. We took it one step further by adding color to the skyline in an evening sky tone.  To offset the soft tones, we used a bright white textured stock + Cherry red envelope… to make the whole thing really buzz with vibrancy.

Social Media Correspondence Cards

29 May 2013 9:00am

As of late… here are the little mini correspondence cards I have been using in the studio when including a personalized note in orders or in letters to family and friends. It features a little space to write in the screen names for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. I just wanted to share! Here is a post I wrote about the Social Media Dilemma… and what I post where!

Chicago City Skyline Save the Date Postcards

23 May 2013 9:00am

A few months ago, I had the pleasure to work on this custom set of Chicago, Illinois city skyline Save the Date bordered postcards in a heavyweight smooth finish natural white stock. For these, I had to “revive” my now retired version of the skyline (an older style drawn in 2009!) and in an interesting twist… changed the skyline into a Sage green finish.

Project Graduate Construction

20 May 2013 10:45am

As we round out another school year, I have a hard time believing that I graduated high school so long ago… I still remember how it felt to be spontaneously thrown out into the “real world”… and then to feel it again when I graduated college! Time surely does fly!

New in the Construction Series… is Project Graduate! This is the first time I’ve designed within the Construction Series with a silhouette as well. It was the perfect solution to keep the design friendly to everyone, and just adjusted the outline for Project Graduate Girl/Female and Project Graduate Boy/Male.

Free Friday: New Drawings

17 May 2013 9:00am

It has been a while since I wrote about my secret desire of becoming a world-famous artist! (Ha.) I thought this Friday would be a great day to write about some works that I have created in the past few months. There is more in the works… more soon! (Prepare for many photos…)

I have been creating in a few new directions, and while it is fun to experiment and try new things, I also need to be careful as not to represent my work portfolio as a whole as being without direction, unstable or incomplete. I’ve always drawn “Muses” and “Little Worlds”… and recently started on “Crash Diet” and a new ‘top secret’ series… but it might seem as if each of the works come out sporadically… I get inspired, draw it, post it… inspired, draw it, post it. It seems that I need to be inspired, draw it, and then perfect it.

More coming soon, but just know that I am going to be staying away from the “trends” in art these days (i.e. drawing girls, unicorns with arrows, animal bones and skulls, antlers, etc.) You know what they say, if it’s trending, you’re already too late. Artwork is just like any other “business” out there. The goal is to have a market, to be appealing and to find that niche… and then own it.
