My show will be a mix of super hero/fantasy type illustrations, male nudes and figures, and some other more personal pieces. I work in pencil, pen and ink and work from both the imagination and photographs.
One of my favorite things to do (besides sketching men from live nude models) is re-imagining classic male-female images as male male images.
See how calm I sound with all of this? I’m not. I’m already panicking and wondering what I’ve gotten myself into. I’m hating all the pieces I have and stressing over creating new ones. You’d think having done this twice before I’d be calm about it, but I’m not. What if my show is unattended or poorly received? What if I’m a laughing stock of the art community? What if I’m kidding myself believing I have any talent or that my artwork is worthy of a gallery show?
