Obsess Over Everything

Banana Woman



My latest Photoshop experiment is a banana lady.  I’ve been wanting to make a lot of ladies with screenprinting, but this is the easiest way to do it.  Maybe a painting will come next but for now this is it!


Made her sketch by hand.

Scanned into photoshop and then inked it out.

Color filled everything and added shading

Drew parts to go into the pattern.  Made a fill pattern and that was that.  Pattern Circle


Just when I was stuck in a rut of no inspiration or ideas, I found this guy. Hew Locke does it all, and in the flashiest of ways. I’m in love with these sculptures of his that have so much to them in terms of material and concept. Plus, they’re just gorgeous.
