Storm Redesign Redux by shoomlah
Storm Redesign Redux

Finally found time to redo the Storm redesign I did for Project Rooftop a couple years back:

Project Rooftop - Storm by shoomlah

...I was pretty rushed the first time around, and I feel like the design suffered for it – wanted to revisit it to get in more of the streamlined, Egyptian elegance I was aiming for.  Much happier this time around. :)

House of M #2 - variant by shoomlah
House of M #2 - variant
My variant cover for House of M #2, announced yesterday on Comic Vine!

 I’m a big fan of the House of M storyline, so it was a blast to work (even peripherally) on this property – weird political machinations, crazy costumes, Namor!  Namor’s abs.  Seven-year-old Claire would be so proud.

Iceland 2014 - Vik by shoomlah
Iceland 2014 - Vik

One of several paintings I did based on the 2014 Iceland Residency I did with Light Grey Art Lab, about a year ago.  You can check out the rest of the series HERE.

Here's my spiel from the exhibition:

"I love weird landscapes. I love inscrutable waterfalls, I love columnar basalt, I love incomprehensibly massive glacial tongues and unexpected volcanic activity.  I love all of this stuff, and so it frustrates me to no end that it’s so rarely reflected in my own work.  I spend most of my time (both professionally and personally) designing characters and costuming, so this show seemed as good a chance as any to step out of my comfort zone and focus on honing my landscape painting skills.  Hard to go wrong with Iceland in the landscape department. 

I included a few of the plein air studies I did while on-site in Iceland, but most of my time during the residency was spent just taking photos and trying to absorb the scenery.  I ended up with ten finished paintings, and tried to focus on some of the imagery during the trip that really stuck with me – the acidic green mosses, the almost eternally overcast sky, the force of water, the semi-abandoned structures.  I also included a couple photos from the trip, a tiny sliver of the several thousand currently residing on my hard drive.  As much as I enjoyed the scenery, it’s not hard to admit that I enjoyed the people even more; this residency wouldn’t have been half as worthwhile if it weren’t for the amazing and talented people I got to spend it with."

I'm nothing if not terrible about telling you folks about things at the last minute, right?  So let's not break tradition- I'm going to be heading down to LA this weekend for the Line Weight III show at Nucleus Gallery!  This is a show dedicated entirely to traditional linework- I rarely get to sell originals, let alone six of them, so I'm pretty excited.  Additional details:

  • Just take a moment to stare at that flyer and look at what good company I'm in, I'll wait.  I KNOW RIGHT?  It's daunting.  I'm flattered.  I love all these guys.
  • I'll also be doing a LIVE DEMO at the gallery during the opening on Saturday, which I am not at all terrified about!  You can head over to the Gallery Nucleus twitter if you want to win whatever I end up drawing- I promise I'll try to draw something cool.  Just for you.

Can't wait for this weekend, and hope to see some of you guys there!

I'm not quite sure!  I'm listed, but work has been INSANE recently and so I might have to back out this year. :(
