I was in Altoona,PA for Illuxcon last week (thanks again Pat and Jeannie for putting on a great show) and I was exposed to an entirely different set of shapes and lighting conditions. I carried a small sketchbook with me and tried reducing the scenes in front of me to just black or white before working out the actual shapes. i'm still using super simple shapes (line tool, square brush, square marquee) to block out the piece. Keeping to a strong, simple, stark, graphic composition makes for a better image i'm rediscovering. Here's the latest in the series of, but no longer strictly Graphic LA.

Awesome Rob. My painting teachers have always talked about the power of shape... maybe that's why I like this series so much. One of my heroes is William Nicholson. You can see all of the same graphic power from his woodcuts in his oil paintings. I feel like you brought that same thing through from the thumbnail to the finished piece.

I also wanted to tell you that my friends and I loved your talk on Sunday. Thanks man.

So awesome!
I really like your technique; many pieces look 'finished' at the block-in stage. It really bolsters the holistic approach to art.
