Ready for the Bacchanal

MaskPrimed

In October, I had finished my first mask making project after slowly working on it, a little at a time. Originally it had started as a simple sketch idea, that I picked up materials for and started, then got sidelined with life. As October rolled around, and I had some free time, I dove in and made sure that I devoted enough time to it that I would be able to finish it properly.

Materials/Process:

Started with a plaster mask from an art store. Immediately cut off the little rinky elastic strap, as well as the lower half of the face, as I wanted to be able to talk, eat, and drink with the mask on. Next step was to take wire mesh (wrapped around crumpled newspaper), and start forming the under structure of the horns. wiring the base of them into the pre-existing mask. Once the horn structure was about where I wanted them, flattened sheets of paperclay were drapped over the mesh, and sculpted into rudimentary horns. Ridges and smaller details were added later.

At a certain point I realized I wanted a darker look to it, and started cutting out the eye areas and the lower face using an Xacto, then wound up picking up a second mask to add the layered effect (also cut down). Some of the last lines on the face, and the trio of circles, were added by using Elmer’s glue to draw lines, and then building the layers up as each layer dried.

Then primed, and ready for paint. which was a solid basecoat of black spraypaint, followed by red and white, and some more black layering with sprays, before going in with brush to finish the small details and then sealing with a varnish coat.

Coupled with some makeup effects underneath, and a nice suit and some props, turned out quite well.

A very special All Hallows Eve from some of the locals in JDGAF city. Decided to make a special piece for what is still my favorite holiday. First a little line art for you. JDGAF_Halloween

Then, my colors, which I actually created and scanned in on different sheets of paper, all colored pencils. Sharing this one because I actually think it looks pretty interesting to see a piece of mine without the line work attached.

and finally, all of column A, plus all of column B equals,….

May your All Hallows be filled with Ghouls and Goblins, hopefully none too scary.

May not be back to updates until mid-November, as I’m leaving the area to do a sculpture install in Rhode Island. More updates when I get back.

Looks like this might be Little D, the owner of this fine establishment.

Next JDGAF will be up on Tuesday.

Have a happy and safe weekend everybody.

I’m back! I’ve been a bit busy with work for a while and havent been around. A couple trips to Texas in the past two months (Houston and Austin) for art installations, and a number of commissions back to back.
The commissions I’ll upload as soon as I get the okay from the clients to do so. Also working on new JDGAFs and a comic for an art collection book of stories, as well as some paintings, small and large, and a number of ink drawings. The ink drawings I can share here now, because I feel like you may be going through some art withdrawals by your favorite JG.

So, be sure to scope out these new pieces, and keep an eye out for a week of various intermittent uploads.

Karmic Driving:

Welcome, as we embark on another story in the city of JDGAF. Hope you enjoy.

“JDGAF is a series of storylines featuring ever-the-oddball random events in the lives of a growing cast of characters. The location of these tales is the fictional city of JDGAF, which is something of a magnet for mutants, aliens, monsters, dieties, and people who do not quite conform to the norm. Needless to say, it is a place that seldom lacks in something interesting happening. Come, be a part of it, and welcome to JDGAF.”
