David + Evelyn by o0Amphigory0o
David + Evelyn
I've been doing a lot of ancestry stuff lately.  This all started after I met up with my aunt who's been researching my mom's side of the family for years now.  She showed me everything she knew about my maternal grandfather's side, and eventually this led to our deciding to take a trip over to Wisconsin to visit my uncle's o we could figure out my maternal grandmother's side, which he's been researching.  It was super fun.  We pretty much spent four days glued to the kitchen table, looking through hundreds and hundreds of family photos.  We wound up taking a few photos home with us, some of which I felt inspired to draw.

This drawing is based off a photo of my half-uncle David Olson, and my maternal grandmother's mom, Evelyn Kozirok.  I tried to be more quick about finishing it, which has resulted in a few slightly disproportional areas here and there, and a more undefined background.  It's not quite how I envisioned it looking, but it's good practice for what other photos I want to draw in the future.

Lately, I've been listening to a lot of podcasts.  I caught one about two months ago that interviewed Brene Brown, a psychologist who studies shame.  What she had to share was really, really illuminating for me.  Her interview led me to realize what emotional problems I've experienced and currently experience have been, in large part, due to buried feelings of shame. That word ...shame... it just seems to encompass so much of what I've been trying to understand about myself, and really about all us humans in general.

This is a tiny piece that grew out of that.  Certainly, there are things about myself I'm still learning to accept...

I may add color later.

This is the first of what's going to be a six piece series.  It doesn't have a well structured plot or anything, is just a bunch of images with things happening in order.  It's a bit of an experiment.  I've been super inspired by sequential work lately, especially comics, so yeah, this is going to be me trying to improve at working sequentially.  I would really like to create comics, or something similar, in the future!

Grad Cats
A little illustration done for the graduation celebration of my mom's preschool class.  The cards originally have the name of each student and their graduation year.  I decided to just show the illustration here on DevArt.

Last piece of the series!! I may make edits to the text once I get some space away from it, but for now, it will be as it is.  

EDIT (5/11/15):  Made a bunch of changes to the text.

I like how naivistic and simplist yet very detailed and beautiful your art is. Your pieces look like taken straight out of a childerns book. :)
