hot off the presses



For Cathy Gendron's Editorial Painting class we were assigned to create a cover for Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis.
After executing the illustration we had to compose a cover that included the title, author's name, and original illustration. I apologize for the cover. I had wet paint right up until the last minute, so the if the graphic design is lackluster . . . I spent all of 5 minutes on it (don't tell Cathy that).
As for the painting, I'm pretty pleased with it. Hope you like it, too.

Love the textures and brush strokes.

Very cool painting--it definitely fits the subtle humor of the writing. What was the media process here? I like the warm lite brown area, looks like watercolor bleeds.

well as far as media goes its pretty much a Heinz 57. Its oil paint on linocut print, mounted to panel. The linocut print was indeed handcolored with watercolor washes
