peek a boo

a little sneak peek at a new piece i am working on. i started drawing this on a flight to seattle and drew continuously the entire flight (5+ hours) and i was actually upset that we started our decent into the airport as i wasn't done drawing and wanted to finish it

with all the ugliness we are witnessing in the world right now, i thought i would offer a small break just to breathe, reflect and have a smile with Miss Fiona Cake Rodriguez

let's learn to love and respect each other people, the time is now

happy #fidofriday everyone

Ahhhh. I'm touching myself tonight

so last night i finally got to put my new +Wacom cintiq companion 2 through some paces scratching out this familiar red guy in +SketchBookPro and i gotta say so far it is outstanding.

so far battery life has been the only real concern as actual performance has not been an issue–at least not while doing illustration work so far. the drawing here in sketchbook is around 7200 x 9000 at 300dpi with around 30 layers of various blending modes and it didn't even so much as blink the entire time i was working on it.

so to sum it up...i am loving the new cintiq, big time

...enjoy

I and I

there is a hashtag/theme going around for artists called #artvsartist in which artists are asked to somewhat reveal themselves surrounded by their artwork as a way to put a face to the work.

i personally love this idea and though i get that a lot of artists like to hide behind their work, it is nice to put a face to their creations and adds a human element to them.

since most of my photography work is self portraiture i didn't really feel the need to reveal myself for that, but some people may have seen my illustration work and not realized who created it, so here is a small sampling with my mug in the middle

if you want to see more of my work visit www.godriguezart.com

brace yourself

another mashup i have had in my head for quite awhile and finally got out of it and onto the page last night. not as involved as the last couple i have created, but a fun one nonetheless

this mashup is another kind of obscure one combining a meme, Game of thrones and Phineas and ferb...if you get it, you rock...if you don't get it you still rock. on a side note, i will be creating one with Ferb as well

for T's and other goodies with this print:

oh, and one more thing...beware of hitchhiking ghosts!

so apparently the sleep i got wednesday night transcribed to an awesome session of drawing last night and the completion of a new piece

some of you will get the references here in this mashup and if you do you are awesome (disclaimer: you are still awesome even if you don't get the references.) when this one popped into my head i could not wait to get moving on it and i so wanted to finish it, that i once again pushed forward and worked on it all night and when i looked at the clock last night upon completing it...the time was 3:30 am O.o

like i mentioned in some previous posts, when this creative wave overtakes me, i push myself extremely hard to create whatever comes to mind as the muse doesn't always stick around for long and this need to create can quickly slip away, so i try to take full advantage of it when it does
