Woodbine Falls cover process by theirison Woodbine Falls cover process by theirison
Its been while! Hope everyone has been doing well and painting their ass off!!
And speaking of painting, here is a shot of the newest cover Im working on, its actually an album cover for a local band here in NYC, Woodbine Falls (band name). They are awesome live, its hard to say that about bands no-a-days.
Anyway, it's on Rives bfk paper (white)
Prismacolor pencil
Caran D'Ache water-salable wax pastels (my favorite medium of all time)
And a hint of acrylics in small places.

Still have a ways to go but I'm moving right along!

Follow me on Instgram for more up to date process stuff!

Gee show off why don't you haha (lame joke)..... the flower is incredible and I'm loving the position of it with the face - any symbolism behind it out of interest?

Erik,I have a question for you!
When you draw faces/flowers, is it just an automatic process for you? I have to look very carefully at a picture, and without a 'model' I am lost. Is this something that comes with practice? I look at your work and I ask myself why I even try to make art in the first place! I will never be as good as you :')
Much love.

Oh no!!! I am a model hound. All the greats used reference, dont be afraid of that!
I reference those flowers and the model! I pull from a lot of fashion photagraphy and fasion blogs, the trick is making it your own, so be crafty and use your artistic license to change things up.

I spent a solid day just on the sketching a drawing part. That shits super hard!!

So dont feel bad at all.
I guess the trick is to make it look easy, and everything looks easy when you're not seeing the iner-workings

Keep on keeping on!!
