New one for SooJin Buzelli at Planadviser magazine, based on the concept of “The importance of the right training/knowledge is power.” A pretty tricky phrase to illustrate, particularly since I needed to encapsulate both of those slightly different ideas. I like all the other sketches, but this is the only one that clicks with the concept. A nice thing with SooJin’s assignments is that I often get neat sketches that I can reuse later one for personal stuff.
Bottom is the color study, which, in some ways I prefer, but it made me too sleepy. Flashbacks of falling asleep in overly warm classrooms.
The new work by Tran Nguyen set forth in Thinkspace Gallery in California. This Vietnamese-born artist received a degree in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design, which I dedicated an entry to its fabulous series ” A Place procured From Our Yesteryears “. Nguyen has a deep interest in therapeutic imagery. He is fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a vehicle of psychotherapeutic support, dreamy surreal exploration of the mind.
