Holiday Charity Auction at Maverix this Sunday

Posted on Friday 30 November 2007

So another charity auction at Maverix this Sunday!

This time, the proceeds will go specifically to support their Children’s Creative Arts Media Center.
If you are around the Bay area, come join the party.
Sunday December 2nd. 6pm til 10pm.
1717 17th street @ Carolina
SF CA 94103

This time around we are given this assignment to collaborate with a drawing done by one of the kids at the Children’s Arts Center. I decided to take this particular drawing and do something with it. It is obviously a challenging assignment but totally a neat idea to contribute to the community.

This is the drawing I received from the school. Really talented artist named Evelynn B. Ly! Remember her name everyone!

this is the digital concept sketch I did. I have been painting a 16 x 20 oil painting for the final. I will post the final this weekend to see if I could pull this challenge with such short amount of time! ๐Ÿ™‚

It is finally done in the morning of the Auction!(way over due….sorry Vaughn and people at Maverix…..) I’ll post a better reproduction later. Also, I took step by step as I worked too. There was a few unique things I did on this painting.

The painting was sold to Vincent Nguyen, a.k.a. Evil Art Mafia.ย  He was bidding all the way from his NYC hideout hiring an innocent artist Soosa Kim as a buyer.ย  There stands a bystander Enrico Casarosa not knowing who was behind this night’s second highest bid….

    Ah man, I hope you finish it in time, it looks like it’d be a real beauty in oils. Of course, the sketch is gorgeous as well. The collaboration is such a great idea!

    See ya on Sunday.

    This sounds like a really fun project, challenging as it is. I love your sketch, and the students drawing is really fun too. I hope you get to finish the oil and share!

    Hi Dice ! That ‘s a great painting, the concept of sharing a kid’s concept art with talented artist is awesome and the result rocks , you perfectly match. There’s a “robots” ‘s perfume in the air. Nice wink. I will send you drawings by my daughter as soon as she can use a pen ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I can see in the background that you still have seven Out of Picture comic books, what a huge fan ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Evil Art Mafia is a true art junkie – so I can see how it would feel kind of wrong to feed his habit. Some day they’re going to find him face down in his apartment, smothered by paintings.
