Working hard and now recharging

For about the past 2 weeks solid I've been painting for about 18 hours a day working on my Stan Lee Tribute piece, and a commissioned piece for the president of 42 Entertainment (the number one viral marketing company). Both paintings are turning out to be two of my strongest pieces, with the commissioned piece shaping up to be my strongest work to date. Here's a sketch of it:

Right now I'm in Chicago, the windy city, and my absolute favorite U.S. City. Whenever I'm here I feel so creative and inspired, maybe because I attended art school here or because its home to the Art Institute of Chicago, or maybe because my beautiful girlfriend lives here... either way, watch out art world, Joshua Clay is in full effect!

Today my plan is to visit the art store for some much needed supplies, and then go hunt down a local coffee shop with a good vibe so I can get some sketching done. I have a big solo show coming my way in March 2008 at Distinction Gallery in San Diego, CA so I gotta get all my pieces planned out so I can get back to painting in the studio ASAP.

The Stan Lee Tribute piece is done, and I do have some sneak peaks of it that I'll be putting up here probable tomorrow. For now, I'm off to the art store!

Right about now

I've got a lot of things in the works. I'm currently working on my piece for the Stan Lee Tribute Show thats going down at Gallery 1988 in Hollywood. For those of you that are in the dark, Stan Lee is the man behind Marvel Comics. The cool thing about this show is Mr. Stan Lee himself is gonna be present at the opening so the pressure is on to put out a super sick piece. Luckily I work best under pressure and I'm bringin the pain!

Here's the preliminary sketch for my piece:

I've already made some big changes in the final piece... but I'm not tellin what they are quite yet haha. Lemme just say the final piece is lookin great! Definitely shaping up to be one of my stronger pieces. I'll get some sneak peaks up soon.

Here's the postcard:

More about the other projects I'm working on soon enough :)
