Coreyartus's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
I am a Costume Designer from San Diego. I teach at a local university, and design and build costumes for them. I also try to work on my own projects such as my Fairy Tale series of women's vests, my personal digital artwork, and my map-making and cartography endeavors I do for fun. These include everything from wallpapers for one's desktop to crepe-paper display heads.

I have a vast collection of poses and rendering examples in my favorites collection that I am gathering as inspiration for my various costume designs and my personal artistic development practicing costume rendering. I sometimes favorite individual examples so I can link back to the artist's page. While most digital rendering methods are far too detailed and specific to be practical to actually illustrate in the theatrical costume design process (way too much time to execute), I've found that many works provide wonderful examples of stylistic ingenuity. They sometimes suggest ways of conquering specific illustrative quandaries that I find inspirational and informative for my own endeavors.

I also have a small sample of my own work on multiple shows and projects. I've found I really enjoy the digital art side of working in Photoshop, and recently I've been knee-deep in Procreate and iColorama with my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I've been finding excuses to create digital art more and more on a variety of endeavors both personal and professional. You can find some examples of that in my Gallery. More can be found on my portfolio sight linked below.

In the end, regarding my theatre costume work, it's important to remember that it's not the renderings that are my particular artistic expression but the costume that results from its use as a tool in the process. Costume Design is about what appears on stage with the collaboration of other designers, actors and technicians, not on the piece of paper. But creating a rendering that is both stylistically interesting and clear goes a LONG way to engendering faith, trust, and understanding in the collaborative theatre-making process. Learning how to draw and looking at the work of others is important.

So that's why I'm here. Thanks for letting me favorite your stuff!!! :)
