  2. The Sound of Music meets Ben Shahn.
duttonart:

The “anatomy” of a recent doodle for Austria. Experimented with ink and colored penciled cutouts, which I then pieced together in Photoshop. Slowly finding my way to a happy medium where I can mix cutout shapes, drawings, and painted elements, reserving Photoshop as a final-stage editing tool. 
The doodle itself is based on the lyrics of the Austrian national anthem:
Land of Mountains, Land by the Stream, Land of fields, land of cathedrals, Land of hammers, with a promising future, Home to great daughters and sons, A nation highly blessed with beauty, Much-praised Austria!
The Sound of Music meets Ben Shahn.

  3. MARS!

    MARS (a play about mining) has come and gone, sold out for all three nights at the Center for Performance Research. Thanks to Superhero Clubhouse for the opportunity, and to Ray Jones and Clay Rodery for participating.

  5. Name: Clothes
    Artist: Abigail Kiser

    Everything is better with a soundtrack. The multimedia Superhero Clubhouse show MARS: A Play About Mining will include live music, and this track is a demo recorded as part of the process. So, as Clay Rodery, Ray Jones and I continue to work on the art for the projections we’re receiving a stream of insight into what everyone else are working on, which makes it pretty impossible to run into a creative block. Enjoy, and check for tickets to go on sale. The show will be open for just a few days in March.

    This week I received a package from Joonhee Lee: catalogues from Kookmin University Museum’s Conversation II, 2012 International Young Artists exhibit. My piece, based on the relationship between Shere Khan and Mowgli in Kipling’s The Jungle Book, is on page 34.

    Thanks to Joon for the opportunity to exhibit.

    From the introduction by Choi Tae Man, director of the museum: “By just fastening up the collections by treating them as antiquities of the past, the museum cannot be said to have fulfilled the role of a museum that the modern society requires. This is why not only the academic investigation study on the historical meanings of the collections are important but the efforts to socialize them are needed … a meaningful attempt to demolish the boundary between life and art through new artworks that have been interpreted modernly.”


  7. Logos set the tone, and this project has a little of everything, so I created this in the hopes of keeping it all open to us: fantasy, history, space travel, coal dust, and comics.
Superhero Clubhouse is known for producing plays with a strong environmental message. The live-action, multimedia performances of Mars: A Play about Mining, inspired by the cultural history of Appalachia and the future race to inhabit Mars, will start March 2013 at the Center for Performance Research and will incorporate traditional narrative, modern dance, live music, and projections.

  8. Cyber-bully vector cartoons

    Earlier in the year I donated some vector/logo sketches to a company working to educate teachers about how to handle cyber-bullying. They’re meant to function broadly, so the content is generalized and the style is clean enough to be applied to different things at different sizes. I kind of want to recycle this first guy, below. He’s kind of the sad, classic bulldog. Had to do it once.


  9. Michael DeForge makes me feel ashamed for not keeping sketchbooks, for zoning out, for getting distracted. Why does his artwork make me feel like I should be exercising? Something to do with the energy level careening from it.
