Speaking the Lingo

Hey Sons! So I've got a question, and I asked MBK, and he suggested I post this here too! So here's a direct quote:

 "...the real question I want to ask is more of a general question...about stylistic language with all subject matters. I have a certain way of drawing people, and those are the most important things to me in a piece..but how do you go about creating a language of drawing a building? Or a still-life? How do you match that stylistically with your figures? I ask because for a very long time now, I've wanted to paint a new still life, or go to an old, creaky house or barn and just draw it on site. But how do you find a style for that?

I think I'm asking you because you have a way of using line that can relate your illustrations to your still life's to your portraits, and so on. So how did you find that? How do you get inspired to bring all of those different subject matters into one definitive style of drawing/painting/conceptualizing?

Just something I'm really puzzled on. I've been thinking about it alot, but wasn't sure how to word the questions. Now I think I got it down : )
I hope your holidays have been fun!"

And I hope the holidays have been fun for you all too! <3

A place for conversation

So the house is booked for the SOT 2011 trip. As always I like to keep my cards close to my chest but suffice to say there will be a LOT of space this year. Space at the dinner table. Hopefully no broken chairs, and at least an acre each to be alone in should there be any arguments. But there wont be. Just lobster. And crab.

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas one and all. I'm up to my eyeballs with wrapping and noise here at Kennedy Acres. Hope you all have a great Christmas. And for those of you coming back to the Academy in January....try to get some rest and peace. This last semester was REALLY busy but I saw some REALLY wonderful work. Love to you and yours, God Save the Queen,  MBK

Sons of Turner Website

Well its nearly the end of the Fall Semester and Christmas is coming fast.  So much to do; so little time yet today it has been very hard to concentrate at the studio and so I began a website just to see if I could.
Now I dont know what to do with it except post photos from the last couple of trips.
It ought to link seamlessly with the blog.
I dont think anyone but me will be able to upload content to it, so thats not good.
I'm going to watch the bucket list tonight with a blanket on the couch.
