My goal is to make the experience of painting a singular one for the viewer. I believe that a painting is not just an illusion in two dimensions, but also that of a moment in life, captured on canvas. Painting, as a language varying in mood and atmosphere, reflects the diversities of life itself. I enjoy the challenges of various subjects, so my approach to the painting process involves the viewer with the subject as much as possible, not only through the choice of a subject, but also through how I portray it.

Inventive, eccentric, and often irreverent, they represent a lifetime of drawing... a very sketchy past. Copiously illustrated with hundreds of paintings and drawings, including never-before-published New Yorker cover roughs, behind-the-scenes animation development artwork, and personal sketches, A Sketchy Past is the first comprehensive survey of de Sève's work. A career-spanning biographical essay written by historian Amid Amidi, along with comments from de Sève throughout the book, offer a unique insight into his approach to illustration and his artistic process.

It provides a digital modeling experience that is very similar to creating real life models out of clay, whereupon the virtual clay simply materializes from thin air and can be quickly shaped, prodded, cut, modified, and added. In practice the effect is very pleasant; allowing your 3D creations to grow organically, on-the-fly, as the idea(s) come to you. Sculptris is unlike other 3D modeling programs previously mentioned on this blog in that the interface is extremely easy to use and the program has a relatively small learning curve. The mouse driven sculpting works very well (see video above), and the modeling is duplicated symmetrically on the fly whereby what you are doing on one side of the object gets immediately emulated on the other (a simple yet brilliant device that is extremely helpful). Here are more notes on this program:

Why is a poster so appealing? Maybe it’s because a poster is more than a photo. It is something that captures life in greater width and height. That’s why posters also easily become keepsakes. Growing up, I had to buy my posters and the larger the size, the higher went the costs.
