This summer I’ve been the intern extraordinaire at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC), a non-profit artist organization. I’d like to tell you all about the upcoming BWAC shows: Color, a show juried by Guggenheim curator Lauren Hinkson, with art from all over the country; and Out of Order, a smorgasbord of local art. The opening reception is July 26, and there will music by jazz percussionist Stephan Bauer and drinks from Drinks by Chocolate, and the gallery is open every weekend from then till August 17, but I’m here to tell you about August 9.
On August 9, there’s going to be screenings of Sweet Dreams, a documentary about female drummers the first ice cream shop in Rwanda. There will be drumming performances, a live podcast with the filmmakers and free ice cream from Blue Marble, as well as a mini street fair selling African goods.
So yeah long story short I made the above rack card and I wanted to share with you the cool stuff that’s happening.

Hello friends and followers, I’m opening up for commissions! If you’re interested, please send me an email at gbarnett@mica.edu . If you’re not, please reblog or send this along to someone who is.

Thanks!

Commissions remain something I’m eager to do. I had a good experience with Danella’s commission and she seemed happy with it too. Also these categories are flexible, and I’m open to suggestions (ie, if you wanted a set of sketches for a character or a reference sheet for a species, etc etc).

If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from
If you would like to participate in this challenge, I ask that you DO NOT repost this anywhere else, including deviantART; please REBLOG this instead! I have the challenge uploaded to deviantART as well, so please check it out there if you want to do it on deviantART!
Here’s some of the drawings I’ve done with a few of these palettes c:

messing around with digital painting from a pencil sketch. I’m getting the feeling that digital painting has a bit of a diminishing returns problem. It takes much longer to do than a cell shading, and the results look foggy and messy a lot of the time. When I do it. But cell shading looks flat and unsatisfying. When I do it. The point of this story is that art is hard for me :\
