These are a series of illustrations on cardboard that I made a while ago as an attempt to expand upon the first one (Fly and Soup), which I made in a class. The recurring theme is a fly buzzing through groups of people or creatures or objects. They are all a bit old - the first is 2 years ago, the rest are from 2011, I think… but I liked them and wanted to share them. I started a few others (just abstract shapes made from watercolor right now), but these are the three that were more resolved.
If anybody is interested in buying a print of any of my four maze illustrations (about 11.5” x 18.5” in size) or the maze book itself, or any other art/prints from the Fairytales and Florals show at Light Grey Art Lab, visit this link and click on the image for the show:
This is the first progress shot of a new maze illustration I started in the past week (with some preparation also, in the weeks preceding that week). Sorry for the poor photo quality, I don’t currently have access to a scanner. It is going to be inspired by places in the neighborhood area and community around where I live (where I live is across the street from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and close to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where I just graduated from this past May).
photo of my Senior Project exhibition space at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Four framed prints of my maze illustrations (I got the frames from IKEA, and bought/cut the mat myself, and mounted the prints inside of the mat frame/backing). And then there’s the book version of the mazes, which I will try to post more images of soon. The little shelf on the far left has some business cards.
Here is my full drawing, and details, for my third maze illustration (for senior project), as it currently is. I have not cleaned it up yet, except for some level adjusting in Photoshop. The image sizes are intentionally small at this point. I might upload some higher resolution detail shots of the drawing. Otherwise, I will upload higher res details when the color version is complete.
Here is an image of the drawing for my first maze illustration (for my Senior Project), along with two detail shots, and also a color version that is not quite final (the color was created using Photoshop after scanning the original pencil drawing in). Also, the style, placement, and content of the text is not final. The original size is 14 inches tall and roughly 22.5 inches wide. These images are scaled down quite a bit from that obviously.
sorry that the copyright placement in the images is sort of obnoxious-looking. future, more official versions will look better. Also, I’m being inconsistent with how I put my name - Dylan Davis or Dylan A. Davis.. will try to be more consistent in future.
