Starting to get back into doing what I do and I have been away from it for a while so time to get back at it. Newish artwork. Old image I started a while ago and changed it up a bit to finish it. It was on of those images that started out as something completely different but kept feeling it go in a new direction and just went with it. ;)

Get Back To Work!

I know I have been absent for most of the past few years. Been dealing with major blows in personal life which has sort of sapped the energy and creative juices out of me. Between illnesses (I am still dealing with), losing my mom and brother in law and dealt with another blow late last year which lead me to really put more focus on taking care of my family. I just could never seem to get back into that creative mode for long stretches at a time anymore.  I have been fortunate though to be able to do a few side jobs in gig posters or logos. The poster thing is a radical departure for me and I am still figuring out what my style and workflow for those will be. It is a fun thing to do, that's for sure. But I miss creating the imagery I like to create. I just haven't had the time.

But I am getting there. I have been following some of our more respected artists that I watch grow into fantastic artists and are all well on their way to great things! I am very proud of them and they have inspired me lately. I have got the itch again. I have been dabbling, though nothing solid to show. Just practice runs. I have some new ideas to get out there soon. I do have a new CD project that is both a commercial endeavour and personal project as it may be the thing to get me going again. ;)

My new work may be going back to my older style and I look forward to the challenges I lay down for myself. Holidays are approaching so new stuff will most likely be in January unless I hunker down and get something done before then. :)

See you all soon! :)

Hey Phil!!...Gotta say love the poster designs. I really gotta jump back into Illustrator. Been ages since I've used the program. Keep up the work!..:)

Thanks, Richard! I know it's really different than my usual but it's a nice gig. ;) I am just about to post a new one. Hopefully a new cd cover will be released soon as well.

:wave: back! It's been a while, hope all is well! :)

I am amazed you still remember me. That makes me happy. I really love that you kept and evolved your unique syle, that was always so "fensterer" and i recognize its yours out of a ton of artworks :)
fensterer Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2014
Of course I still remember! ;) I don't get to spend much time on here myself, online in general, actually. A lot of the old guard seems to have moved on. I haven't done a whole lot of photomanips lately, want to but it just hasn't worked out. But I will be getting back to it soon and hopefully to further my techniques. Good to hear you can pick out my work from the crowd. That's why I use my studio name creative schism. To break apart from the rest. ;) After I finish a few gig posters I am working on, more manips to follow!

I am doing a journal featuring all of the folks I watch and like. I would like to feature two of your works for my journal for October.
fensterer Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014
Sure thing, I would be honored! ;)
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2014
You can pick the two pictures if you wish.
fensterer Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2014
That would be very difficult for me. ;) So whatever you choose would be fine. I am partial to my darker stuff though! ;)
