In the strangest year in my lifetime, I figured it was fitting to wrap it up with a few oddities that are changes in perspective.
This was a quick piece done for an exhibit at Works/San José show, Unity In Diversity. This theme relates to a graphic design project by San Jose State BFA student Javier Yep in 2017 that included a “unity in diversity” flag.
Inspired by the flame effect of these frames, I created a couple of illustrations in ink and colored pencil based on a painting I did in college.
Last one in the Harvest series skews tropical with papayas. This ended up being both the biggest fruits (only four on here) with the smallest details (little black seeds).
3rd of 4 in the Harvest series – avocados, cut open to show off the green insides and shiny pits.
Another fruit in the Harvest series – this time, a little pile of blueberries. This one’s more of an experiment in subtle patterns within a dense texture.
Here’s a bright little drawing of persimmons from memory. I drew this with Prismacolor pencils to experiment with blending techniques to replicate the muted sheen on the fruit.
