"A Quick Sketch of..." is a new series of Interviews on different personalities from the Traditional Gallery. Some of them will be underviewed talents, and some (like our first featured deviant) will be some of the best-known and finest artists dA has to offer.
Quick Sketches give us the opportunity to capture an image of someone, a momentary view of their reality... Please welcome today's Sketched deviant: American painter, illustrator and musician kolaboy.
stigmatattoo What were you doing just now?
:iconkolaboy: I was cutting firewood. I never really appreciated the difficult life of a lumberjack until I began cutting my own firewood.
stigmatattoo Do you plan your day ahead and if so, do you manage to stick to it?
:iconkolaboy: I plan my day ahead insofar as I have the PM hours free to work on various projects. Fewer distractions in the nighttim
Hello! A lot has happened since the last time I updated my journal, and I wish to share the news one step at a time. deviantART is still, after so many years, one of the primary places where I share finished work. Since the launch of my website at the start of the new year, I have over the past few months established a system of where to post updates of my paintings, detailed walkthroughs and works-in-progress.
This section on my website is for what goes on "behind the scenes". Archived here are walkthroughs of my paintings, which I update on a regular basis, and it is also where I'll be sharing photos of how I get my paintings ready for exhibits.
High resolution images of my works-in-progress accompanied by detailed annotations are posted exclusively on my website.
There are two very convenient ways to receive updates of "In Studio" postings via the website's resources. By selecting "art update feeds" from the top right menu located at the header, there are options for subscribing directly to RSS, or to receive RSS alerts via email.
Here is another way to follow updates of all things related to my work, as updates from my website are fed directly here and are automatically posted to the Wall. Some finished works are posted here, although not of high resolution. Simply "like" the page to stay in touch.
Finally, there's my Facebook profile, where I like to post work-in-progress images in a "teaser" fashion, in that they are the most up-to-date, but with longer intervals and much less continuity between one step and the next in the painting process. By comparison, "In Studio" is where the most complete documentation of my works-in-progress can be enjoyed, however each detailed walkthrough on my website are posted only after a painting is finished.
In other words, for those who thirst for as-soon-as-possible updates, this is the place to go. There is also plenty of sideshow entertainment, as this is pretty much the only place where I post photos of my husband Keith's delicious cooking, as well as photos of my cats Chiko and Perry getting into feline shenanigans.
