Jen Holding Wolf & Lasers


Youth-inspired mixed media painting that is finished after 2 years of off-and-on attention but it came together in the end. The end result is an eclectic mixture of lace, driftwood, pages and paint that seeks to capture the wild bond between a girl and her dog.

Abyssal Zone + Bunnies

The first stages — sketching & vellum cut outs for adding in lava-ish butterflies. I wanted something a little bio-luminescent to add in some more color.

Finished I believe?! I’m really happy with the colors.

Turkey Gobble Squirrel

Not much going on here yet – just setting the stage for some squirrel action. I missed my 4th of July squirrel opportunity so now I have ditch the gunpowder and explosions motif for the stunning death of leaves.

Chalkfest 2013 – The Squirrel II

We combined our initial sketches into Photoshop to play around with the idea. This is the game plan that resulted from tinkering.

Beginning Squirrel

Starting out the morning by mapping in the big chunks of color. Some people like to use grids, I think that is an extra, time-consuming step so I choose to avoid it. We eyeball in this house.

Squirrel Progress
A bit of time elapsed from the first picture to here. No time to dilly dally with cameras.

Bragging rights! All thanks to my lovely partner Carrie Sood and not possible without the efforts of Volume One. For more pictures check out my facebook page. For more info about the event check out Volume One! Also, feel free to check out last year’s epic squirrel saga.

Just a quick fan art for a badass little dog. This furry lady lost her snout saving some kids in the Phillipines. More info here.

Girl on a Grizzly Bear

A lil scrapbook project for the ol’ vacation. I may or may not have enhanced the photo just a touch.

Painted Milk Cans

Bit different angle, but who doesn’t love a good before and after. I also have a few process pictures if you are interested in sanding, the Chihuahua or the Beagles.

Summer is Coming

Playin’ with atmosphere.  I want to add in more texture and turn it into a texture experiment but this might very well end here.

Sad Walrus – No less than you would expect

sad walrus
Yea… It is. It is a sad clown painting with a walrus. If there is one thing I know, it’s that everyone can empathize with the plight of the walrus.

Crazy Eye

I’ve been on an eye kick lately and I just wanted to share this crazy iris. This fancy ruffle is news to me but known as ‘iridic granules’  or ‘corpora nigra’ to people that like to call things what they are. A brief internet search leads me to believe these are found mostly horses-like animals and function as eye-visors in bright light. This particular image comes from Suren Manvelyan.
