I just recently moved to NYC, where I've been finding a lot of dogs live. I have seen some of the cutest dogs here, some of the ugliest, and a good range in between. Therefore, I am going to start a series of NYC dogs and owners; documenting some of the strange coupling of man or woman and dog that I've seen. Also, I'm going to be using the series to practice more on my wacom tablet and to start using Adobe Illustrator. So here goes! Bet this dog owner wishes his dog could donate some hair.
Hey! So I decided, after a lot of pushing and prodding by my wonderful and talented grandfather, to start painting again. My idea was to start painting moments of my childhood that portray a distinct and/or resonate childhood emotion. What I love about this painting is how the girl's facial expression can be read in so many different ways. Hope y'all like it!
Hi guys!! If you're new to my blog, welcome! This is where I post my artistic and adventurous ramblings and art stuff. I do all sorts of things; painting, sketching, filmmaking, animation, sculpting, and photography. Today I decided to post these pencil sketches, because it's something that I want to start doing more. My scanner really ruined a lot of the values in these, but even still, I'd love to hear your thoughts! Maybe a few positive comments will motivate me?? hehehe Thanks for stopping by!! Also, don't forget to check out my etsy page, where I sell my clay sculptures, at http://etsy.com/shop/EmilyTomasik
I wanted to use this post to let you all know about a pretty cool thing... there is a contest to win a FREE TRIP AROUND THE WORLD through Travelocity. I have always been in love with traveling, and those of you who know me best know that that is when I'm happiest, and also where I get a lot of inspiration from artistically! Thing is, I need YOUR help if I'm going to really try and win this thing!!!
The winner is chosen by a combination of judges favorites AND the number of votes you receive. It's free to vote, and when you register just make sure to un-check the last box if you don't want to start receiving emails from travelocity. Once you've registered, it's SUPER EASY to vote, just click "vote for me", put in your email, and you're done! It literally takes only 13 seconds.
So if you have 13 minutes to spare, I would be so so so appreciative. This will probably be my only chance ever to do something like this!
My boyfriend and I each posted a video, to double our chances of winning. You can vote for both every day, for the next 6 days (until October 27th). I would be so appreciative of any and all votes!! Please, spread the word!!
Hi all! I recently submitted to the Turkey Trot's t-shirt design contest. Although I didn't win, I still like my designs, so I'm posting them here for all to see!
For those who don't know, the Turkey Trot is an 8K race that takes place on Thanksgiving day in downtown Buffalo. There's a big party afterwards at the Convention Center that's a lot of fun!
This past weekend was my first attempt at selling some of my work at an arts festival. I was at the East End Arts Festival in Lancaster, NY, and I was amazed by the overwhelmingly positive response I got from the vendors and people who came. I won Second Prize for my booth! Thanks to all who stopped by!!
I'm hoping to start showing at more fairs and festivals coming up, but don't have any specific plans as of yet. I will be posting where I'll be next right here on my blog, so keep checking in with me!!
Also, for those who don't know, I'm happy to do custom orders! Custom ornaments, statues, picture holders, miniatures-- whatever you may desire! Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what it is you want! I've never gotten a request I couldn't handle.
In the meantime, please check out my facebook page, Emily Tomasik, for more ideas and photos on what I have done and am selling now! I really appreciate your support!
