“There are a lot of books out there that are how-to’s. How to mix color, paint a face, books on composition and drawing, etc. But there are very few that are about where ideas for paintings come from. I’ve looked at many, many paintings over the years and my first thought isn’t “How did the artist paint that?” it’s “Where did that come from?”. So I’ve created this book, Poster and Process. It features the poster series I created for the Orlando Opera, over 35 paintings. The work is narrative and conceptual, each painting needed to tell the story of the specific opera in a succinct yet compelling way. Each spread features a synopsis of the opera, all of the sketches and studies that lead to the final painting and a text section called creative insight where I explain how the idea evolved and why. There’s also a section about the creative processes that I use in developing these kinds of works.
