One of a set of four 'The Odyssey' inspired pieces I'll be submitting into an art show in July based on the 'Artist's Mythology'.
This is my take on Penelope, wife to the main character "Odysseus", who in light of his disappearance fends of suitors looking to take his thrown by promising marriage once she has finished weaving a tapestry. Throughout the epic, she unravels the tapestry everynight, hoping to buy time for her love to return.

Known as HonoluluDogFight on skineart.com, George Pfromm II is definitely one of my favorite artists on the moleskin aficionado blog. His retro 1940/50s cartooning style is simple yet dynamic. He uses simple lines and shapes to make quirky little characters, which he features in his moleskin-comics. I especially love his thick brushstroke inking style, a far cry from what we all see in current Marvel/DC comics. Although he's not the first to use this look in his work, I admire it nonetheless. Here are some of my favorites from his moleskin sketchbook:
Hey everyone! So I come today to share something awesome I stumbled across today through my journey along the interwebs. While studying at SVA a few years ago, I had one professor that truly embodied what it was to change someone for the best. His name? Steve DeFrank. This man was my sculpting professor and pushed my limits beyond anything imaginable. I never took to 3 Dimensional art, nor did I understand it, until him. He made me realize what an amazing artform it was and how I could translate the imagery I had in my head into a solid and intriguing structure to share with the world. His teachings are ones I will never forget. It's for this reason that today, I googled him in attempts to see what he had been up to, hence arriving to the following videos on his work.
