Comment:
Finished this just in time as the deadline is the 27th for this guy~
I'm participating in a local show in October, and was asked to make an entirely new piece of art using something of Public Domain. The show is themed and named Public Domain, and pretty much all media types are open. I figured I would use one of my favorite classical suites, The Carnival of the Animals, as inspiration and as the public domain element that is to be present in the piece.

I did most of the piece tradtionally using ink, marker, and pencil and then proceeded to scan it and add in a photo element (the blue eye) and textures that included the actual sheet music. I went a little Lisa Frank with the colors, but honestly I'm really happy with the way it turned out!

Now to get this off to the printers later this week!

RAWColumbus presents ALLURE by soulspoison
RAWColumbus presents ALLURE
Hi followers, fans, and supporters,
I have been hand-selected by RAW:natural born artists to [perform/show my work] at their next artist showcase in Columbus called ALLURE, but I need your help! The event will be held at 503 S Front St #260 @ Shadowbox Live on Tuesday August 19th @ 7pm. The event is 21+ and the dress code is cocktail attire. I'm writing to you to ask for your support to be a part of this amazing event! Not only can this event help me network with other great local artists and expose me to 500+ attendees, it can help me expand nationally as well.

Here's how:
RAW is providing me with a video interview and b-roll footage of the event, as well as head shots and photos of my display and work to help me to further promote myself independently. I'll be eligible to win the RAW artist of the year award locally and/or nationally!

AND I will have an opportunity to showcase again OUT-OF-STATE at any other RAW location of my choice! All I have to do is sell 20 tickets to help promote the event. Your support would be greatly appreciated. The tickets are only $15 and need to be sold by Tuesday, August 12th in order for me to participate. If you buy them from me you also save $5 because they go up to $20 at the door.

You can purchase tickets right from my RAW artist profile: www.rawartists.org/padmabhujag…
 
If you are not available to attend that night, you can still purchase a ticket to support me and my work as a sponsor. This will open up a guest list spot for me to invite someone who can attend [friends, clients, record label owner, gallery owner, etc.]

For those that buy a ticket and cannot attend the event, email me at padmabhujagaart[at]gmail[dot]com with your name and a screenshot of your confirmation, and I'll send you a free set of buttons and mini print!

Thank you so much for your support, I couldn't do this without you!

Namaste,
Simhanada

Comment:
New art is getting to be a rarity for me this summer, who knew a bookstore could be so busy! x n x
So a few weeks ago I was digging through an old folder and found line work that hadn't be colored or finished. This one was one I'd wanted to do up sooo badly with watercolor, so I set to work on it.

Working off and on at home, plus during my lunch breaks, I finally managed to get it done. Then I forgot to post it. XD A lot of you may recognize this guy from some older works, he's named Makaiha! Oracle (really more of a crack fortune teller and magic user) that can shift his age/appearance at will for clients. I think this is maybe the second time ever I've drawn him in full naga form instead of his human guise. Overall I'm suuuuuuuuuuper happy with the result! The scanner butchered it as usual but its not too terrible.

Comment:
असीम (Asima) - Unending (adj) - having or seeming to have no end.

Another personal piece, one that's been turning in the back of my mind for a bit.
I needed to do something using a lot of personal elements and symbols after hearing a song that means a lot after so long. For a few years I hadn't listened to it, and it came on during a shuffle playlist and bought a lot back with it. The ouroborous is a symbol I've associated with for a long time, designs based on spirals and circles have always held a special place for me. Coupling that with the serpent (a symbol of renewal and rebirth), the fossa familiar, and Saleeda - well it makes for a strong statement spiritually. While it doesn't make sense to much anyone but myself, I'm glad to be done and sharing it.

Maybe I'm a Lion...

A little bit strange, a little bit secret. A little bit human, a little bit not. Old soul, new vision - 26 years living, head in the clouds, feet in the sea, heart of a lion. I'm an artist and crafter, poet, misanthrope monster, war-worn mech, passionate dreamer, eclectic spiritualist, dancer, Taurus, and wild wanderer.

I am an amalgam of many things, I love music and art, and live to see the world for what it is and once was. I draw with my soul and speak with my heart, nothing will change that.

Its taken twenty-four long, hard years to find me.
