Mr. Fuchs

I love mugshots and ID shots, somewhere I found a collection of ID shots of people who worked on the atomic bomb project in New Mexico in the 40s. This guy’s pic interested me, some research showed that he was German, emigrated to the US to work on the project. Later, he gave secrets to the Russians and spent some time in prison. The pic was hand colored, and composited with an old scan from a Life Magazine ad.

A dwelling by in the sea

homes in the sea

This is an often seen idea: stacked dwellings in a pile of some sort. I’ve wanted to make my own version for a while, and have several versions of this. It started drawn on paper, scanned and traced in Illustrator, then I added textures in Pshop. I’m mostly pleased, and may animate this some way.

Another creative project from The Jealous Curator. The project was to document, in any way you want, the contents of your medicine cabinet. I started to draw the items, hated that. Photographed them in horrible light, I was going to trace them in either Illustrator or ArtRage, but lost interest in that too. Finally, I mucked around w/ them in Pshop, layered them and added color and type. There are three 11×17 designs, all crammed here. The lower part shows some more detail. I have a moderate amount of happiness with these designs. There was some desperation and some happy accidents, and that’s where the magic happens.

These were done as an exercise, with mixed results. They started as pencil sketches, then traced in illustrator and finished out in pshop. I used both painted on textures and some stuff found online. Text added from a book I’m trying to read (as if these are the dude’s names), set in LetterMpress.
