— Posters for “sale” — limited prints!


These two posters are up for grabs!
I will “sell” 2 prints each of these. The price? Your choice.

If you are short on cash, no problem! Then you just pay the shipping fee (with tracked mail it can range from 90 SEK to about 300 SEK (depending on the distance/where you are located)) and we are all set to go!

You only pay what YOU think the artwork is worth for you. Like a “tip” for me how good you think it is.

Here are the choices (all A3-formate). They are available as these uncolored versions and a colored version (without the name tag).

New beginnings


That’s what we all say when we leave for holidays from work, isn’t it? 😉
Truth be told, I think and say that too. Just that it’s true. At least art-wise for me. Since I got off my regular job I have felt a rise in creative energy that have mainly been “caused” by me buying adult coloring books (you know, the ones with flowers and madalas that they want you to color for anti-stress-purposes” and stuff?).

Those color books are GREAT, but not for the purpose they are intended for! I get inspired from maybe 5-6 designs for each artwork I make. Here are some very recent examples, just a few days old:

 

SMALLER1

Mermaid

Mother Nature

There is more to come where these drawings came from, I get SO much inspiration from those coloring books. Maybe I should make one myself?

The last non-colored image is available for a3 print-sales. I already in the progress sold 2 so apparently you people like these kind of things! I will surely make more.

AND I have ordered an art-printer for myself with a full a3 scanner (trying to scan a drawing in two pieces and then put them together doesn’t work in the current a4-scanner I have… tried it and failed). With my own a3-scanner and printer, I can choose the paper and control the prints myself. I will establish a webshop for prints eventually, since the interest is sort of big as it seems.

If there are any questions you can always contact me at paulinamedeponaarts@gmail.com for more information.

Now, time to get going with another design before my free time runs out for the summer. Later this week I will start another SFX course and make myself another silicone-monster 😀 Last year was a blast and now it’s time to repeat!

Had a break from tattooing but now I am back in business…


Hello there, the few of you who still read this blog!
Been some time since I tattooed (before the other day when I tattooed my fiancé), had a little break for over a month in order to get myself back on track. Realized I had not had a proper day off since July, those things mess with your head and energy 😉

Well, now I am back and started tattooing again. It feels fun again!

This is what I did on my fiancés arm (the moon and clouds around it is not my work)

29791629_1900161716941973_4919332653234126848_nI will from now on take bookings through paulina.tatuering@gmail.com to ease the stress from my private social media accounts. Social media can be such stress sometimes and I try to sort it out, be a bit absent. You need to live as well 😉

Otherwise than that, I have been experimenting with BOTH aquarelle-paint and doll making (yep). Haven’t reached that far on the doll but it’s a first for me.

As you can see, I have been busy since last entry but haven’t shared it here! I hope to make a full post about the doll-making when I am done. It’s a very intriguing field and I have watched hundreds of Youtube-videos, searched maaany forums and well, finally got myself some Pro-Sculpt and wires. Looking forward to continue this project, complete with a costume and wig 🙂

Long time no see


I am, again, bad at blogging. I want to write more here but there has absolutely been no time recently.

If you follow my other social media (Instagram and Facebook) you know I have started tattooing since July. Every 3:rd week I am cracking it at Custom Classic Tattoo in Hudiksvall, all week long, to gain experience and “points” (money mostly) to be able to build my own business in the tattoo (+ art probably) world within a few years.

It is going well, and I will get my old tattoo blog (taken down by me right now but it’s there and ready for me to publish again) up and running again for some more progress images of my little journey over here.

Here is my most recent artwork of Ozzy Osbourne! Made with Promarkers, ink pencils, aquarelle pencils, aquapix, ink and goache.

I will post more about my tattoos too later (I hope) and get my tattoo page up and running! Til then

Experimenting with mixed techniques again


Long time no see, I have been in a bit of an experimental period in the sense that I have been learning airbrush (off camera mostly) when I have some space over for creating art.

I need to shuffle my priorities a bit now, I can feel it. I have way too little time over for artsy stuff recently and I need to change that. This is what I LOVE to do (besides my horse) and I need to invest more time into it.

I do this mainly for my own gain, it is my feel-good-drug that keeps me up in this crazy world that is spinning faster and faster. I have no illusions I will reach somewhere, I just want to improve for myself and my own purpose in life. And as with all drugs, you need higher and better doses the longer you go; With art it is that I feel I HAVE to improve all the time in order to get the sufficient kick out of it.

Recently it has been slow due to my learning progress of airbrush but recent days, my artworking initiative has started to come back. Especially since I just learned that my airbrush colors works and blend with my promarkers in a beneficial way.

This is a commissioned multi portrait of Peter Steele that I am working on (in time lapse too, so the entire progress will be displayed later)!

Peter Steele mixed media portrait by Paulina Medepon Arts

The bottom picture is the recent image I shot. This has so far taken me about 3 hours, so still VERY early on. Later I will try to add some airbrush touch to it, to make it more interesting (and ups my mixed media concept in one artwork to 6 components; Promarkers, ink, ink pencils, aquarelle pencils, charcoal and airbrush).

To be continued.

Sewing in deep water


This is the sketch I made at 6 am this morning when I woke up with an “idea” in mind (it’s interesting how creativity hits, especially when it’s in a field you are not that experienced in and in a way that I would NEVER even think of – I AM GOING WITHOUT ANY PATTERN OR INSTRUCTION HELP WHAT SO EVER, that is why I want to share it already in case I blow it later on so I write about it when I am still in a good place 😉 )

18199227_1457351774324846_8860140936231869220_n

Now, several hours later, it looks like this;

18301034_1457793800947310_8755053188596898866_n

I have used the original idea but I have altered the design and making the hems even. I REALLY wanted that huge hood and I actually pulled it off so far, even the attachment to the neckline seems to be a no-problem. On the open sides seen in the picture I will do faux leather inlays that I will lace if the fit is too loose with leather strings. In the front as “buttoning” I will do lacing with ribbons but that comes later when I put fodder in! I will also make long, symmetric sleeves (without the leather I had in the original idea I guess, haven’t decided yet 😉 )

The layout is now in progress as I go, with the original sketch in mind, but I have stepped aside from it.

Note, I have NEVER done ANYTHING without patterns and instructions before, now I have to figure it out myself.

I am in DEEP water here, completely swimming in the unknown. But that is the purpose and essence of “unchained creativity” isn’t it? I decided to go completely with my gut feeling at this point and see where it takes me!

Still not sure if this will be a good thing or turn into a quilted blanket, it is still hidden for me 😉 But my GUTS tell me this will be good for me at least.

It’s not the finished product that is the goal, it is the development and the process in itself.

Til later (when I hopefully haven’t trashed the entire thing)

Time lapse/speed drawing – Anglerfish


This little bugger is one of my favorite deep sea creatures besides the vampire squid (will have to draw that one later)! I made this drawing with Promarkers and ink pencils.

DSC_0718smaller.jpg

(facts copied from http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/fish/anglerfish/)

The angry-looking deep sea anglerfish has a right to be cranky. It is quite possibly the ugliest animal on the planet, and it lives in what is easily Earth’s most inhospitable habitat: the lonely, lightless bottom of the sea.

There are more than 200 species of anglerfish, most of which live in the murky depths of the Atlantic and Antarctic oceans, up to a mile below the surface, although some live in shallow, tropical environments. Generally dark gray to dark brown in color, they have huge heads and enormous crescent-shaped mouths filled with sharp, translucent teeth. Some angler fish can be quite large, reaching 3.3 feet (1 meter) in length. Most however are significantly smaller, often less than a foot.

Their most distinctive feature, worn only by females, is a piece of dorsal spine that protrudes above their mouths like a fishing pole—hence their name. Tipped with a lure of luminous flesh this built-in rod baits prey close enough to be snatched. Their mouths are so big and their bodies so pliable, they can actually swallow prey up to twice their own size.

The male, which is significantly smaller than the female, has no need for such an adaptation. In lieu of continually seeking the vast abyss for a female, it has evolved into a permanent parasitic mate. When a young, free-swimming male angler encounters a female, he latches onto her with his sharp teeth. Over time, the male physically fuses with the female, connecting to her skin and bloodstream and losing his eyes and all his internal organs except the testes. A female will carry six or more males on her body.

Pretty interesting animal, isn’t it?
Til next time
