Contributing Art To Fencing

Some time ago, I created three prints based on each weapon of classical and olympic fencing using different gods to represent the past connecting to the present. It was also part of something I had in mind to expand on in the future as a way to introduce and educate people on this sport. For about nine year now, I've been fencing epee and really enjoy the aspects of the game but also the physical workout it provides for me as an artist to stay in shape. 

And each year or every other year I would contribute my talent to the fencing community to design a t-shirt. Although, I'll be doing the twenty-fifth anniversary shirt in Spring of 2018 instead. This time around, I've decided to contribute three prints from my Society6 online store to the Middlebury Open tournament on weekend of March 1st, which occurs every year by tradition, where they have raffle prizes to give out when people buy enough tickets. The money is used as a fund raiser to support next year's budget for the Vermont Fencing Alliance

This is also a good way for me to market myself through the fencing community and outwards., one in which I think would be an interesting experiment. The prints, having been delivered to my address, came out really nice which made me very satisfied. Society6's print quality is beautiful and they use, I quote:

`Gallery quality Giclée prints on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using Epson UltraChrome™ K3 archival inks - the standard by which all other professional level ink technologies are measured.`

This is only one of these unique times when I contribute my work to the community because I enjoy this sport very much.

New Art for 2017

Happy New Year to all and apologies for the late posting. I've been quite busy for some time working on a few projects and managed to complete one that's been on top of my list. I had a friend pose for me with her leather jacket and holding one of my practice swords at the martial arts gym in Burlington one night so I could use several shots to get it right and I went with the pose shown in the illustration below, especially with spikes on her jacket inspired by the artistry of Toxic Vision

This piece has been in the works for months and finally produced on Procreate on iPad Pro and then it was given the finishing touches on Clip Studio Paint ( formerly Manga Studio ). The more I worked with Procreate, the more impressed I get especially with the Apple Pencil. That thing is so sensitive that I can make wispy lines to the thickest.

Lo and behold the darkness of things that crawl out of the shadows!

Inktober 2015

Because I suffered pneumonia around October and had to recover from it, this is my first and only Inktober piece for 2015. During my recovery phase, I got a bit better and decided to get the ball rolling by doing some inking on my moleskine sketchbook. I used a Pilot G-Tec C pen that I bought recently which I really enjoyed using and I find this to be one of my favorite pens to use now.

This is my gothic theme of a character with pulcinella mask which is like a venetian culture of secrecy and a rapier blade walking down the cemetery towards some unknown destination while the statue weeps, perhaps that someone is about to meet his or her fate in death.

New Society6 Art Prints

Over a month ago, I illustrated and designed a t-shrit for the Champlain Cup fencing tournament with an irish green backdrop as a transparency. Once it was printed, it sold out very quickly almost on the first day of the event and people had to request for more orders. I had the idea of re-creating it as an art print instead in black and white which was the original intention and so, therefore, two alternative versions have been made available in my Society6 store.

 

One would be with the white background and the other in black for a more dramatic effect with some quotes. However, the half-tones for the mask in this print has been re-created. I certainly hope that those who have missed out on the shirts would have a new chance at it, especially there are phone case offerings for them on my Society6 store.
