As of today, there are 75 days left in 2014. Every day from now on I will be posting a new 5x7 inch watercolor nude that will be included in the Limited Edition Signed & Numbered Best of Nude of the Day: Year One book.

Here is what it will look like inside the book:



The remaining 25 will be posted in 2015.

You can leave the painting inside the book or frame it to hang on your wall (or rest on your credenza - we all know you have one).

Best of Nude of the Day: Year One - Awesomesause Edition



Hey Everyone!!!

Way back in 2008, I put out a 40 page 7x7 inch print-on-demand book collecting my favorite works from first year of Nude of the Day. I was pretty proud of the book, but the print-on-demand quality was a little weak and pretty cost prohibitive. Cut to 2012, when I get a call from the uber awesome Alberto Ruiz (on my birthday, no less), asking me if I would like to do a book of my Nudes for his new imprint, Xupuy Ediciones.



Alberto partnered up with The Labyrinth book store in Toronto, Canada, and Pulp's Books, in Paris, France, to produce a bunch of great art books. I was lucky to be included, as well.

This version if the book is BIGGER (9x12 inches), has more pages (48), and is a Hardcover!!!
I was able to include more images, get them to show up closer to the original size, and the colors turned out better than I had hoped!



In early 2013, I came home to a 600lb pallet of books sitting on my doorstep. And that was it. I've been sitting on these babies for over a year-and-a-half, watching them collect dust, and using them to prop up my roommate's tv. Well, after dragging them from apartment to apartment, and now to another state, I finally carved up some time to put these babies online and sell them through my blog.



Each book will come signed by yours truly! :)



I'm also offering a Limited Edition Book with an Original 5x7 inch Watercolor included on the front page for $75.00. This will be an edition of 100 books with an original painting inside them. Signed and numbered. I start posting the original drawings later today, one a day. If you see one you like, order it directly from the post.

Reclining Male Nude

Reclining Male Nude

A few weeks ago I went to the Figure Drawing Co-op at MCAD. It was a strange, but fun experience. There I was feeling like I was back in school, surrounded by a bunch of college students (I was). I didn't know what to expect going in. The session was four hours long comprised mostly of short poses, with one long pose at the end. Sadly all I brought with me was a 9x12 inch watercolor pad. This painting was from an hour-long pose. I spent a while struggling with the face of the model, which kept on taking up the bulk of the 9x12 sheet. I wanted to get more of him in, so I grabbed another sheet and tried to work on both pages at once. It was an hour-long struggle and I hated every minute of it. Every stroke of the pencil or the brush made me want to cringe. I wanted to throw in the towel and head out early. It wasn't until the last few minutes that it all started coming together, and the painting turned out not too shabby. I'm glad I stuck with it. Next time I go back, I'll have to bring a larger sheet of paper.

Tomorrow I'll have a special post! If you want a preview, check out my Instagram.
