The Work of Art?

image

The chaos of creative expression and the creation of art is limitless. I have been asked how long it takes to create certain pieces of art and that is often hard to answer.

The final center design above combining the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos logos took many hours from idea to completion.  There were many preliminary drawings of ideas, further sketches on different papers and color studies using pastels and colored pencils. 

Art does not just happen but the journey from vision to completion is fraught with twists and turns,  stops and starts. I would not have it any other way, that is where the joy resides.

Super Bowl = Broncos + Seahawks

Preliminary drawing ideas on tracing paper.

With the Super Bowl almost upon us I still am not sure who to root for.  Growing up in Idaho I was raised a Broncos fan but now living in Washington the Seahawks are … well I think you understand my dilemma.

So I came up with the idea to combine the two logos into one.  So is this a “BroncHawk”  or “Seaonco” ?  The final drawing was completed using pastels on 12×9 inch gray pastel paper.  The first image is the untouched original,  the second has a faded black border added and the third is the preliminary drawing ideas.

Enjoy and feel free to share the images! ~M
