This piece continues with my investigation of the moving image. But instead of creating multiple frames for an animation I wanted to spill a scene onto one page.

The Call for Entry - Finding Gallery Shows.

This page is a list of websites that may help visual artists find calls for shows around the country. The purpose of this list is not to be all inclusive and list every local art center and gallery out there. Instead I envision this page as a list to help me* as well as an artist interested in gaining National and International exposure through a broader list of Call for Entry Sites, Slide Registries, Galleries, Museums, Universities and Art Centers.  There are a number of FREE call for entry lists out there.

Birds - Graphite Pencil Triptych

Birds - digital collage - drawing

A combination of thoughts and images showing my journey forward on the triptych called "Birds"  This image illustrates what the final piece will look like when I am finished. It is a digital collage put together with about 10 layers of images and 4 photos in photoshop.  It is my sketch and helps guide me compositionally.

Fragmented - Digital Animation

Scott Hutchison - Fragmented - Digital Painted Animation

I have restarted a piece I began working on in 2011. It is called Fragmented. This is my first piece that is completely painted digitally. I am using a technique called Rotoscoping . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotoscoping This project contains 827 stills and each painting takes about an hour to complete. Only 827 hours? Insane! But I have an insane sleep schedule sooo… Anyways, I think it could be a killer project and have quite an impact when it’s finished.

One figure with a birds nest in her hair. I wanted a greater conflict within the piece and to create a sense of wonder and mystery for the viewer. It is this wonderment, discovery and curiosity that keeps me creating, painting and drawing day in and day out. With these thoughts in mind I came up with the idea of adding more birds. The Working title is "Birds".

Flowers & Landscape in Graphite

Landscape drawing by Scott Hutchison

My process of creating is not bound by any one subject or approach. It is an honest connection within myself, the world around us and the medium I have chosen. I particularly enjoy the linear and figurative elements of foliage. Branches and pedals twist on themselves and reach through the composition.

This is the first of a new series of drawings called "Plastic". This face is one of the hardest I have worked on. The abstraction over the face is caused by pressure and tension as well as from light reflecting from plastic wrap over the face.

What to do when your art fails.*

Scott Hutchison's Drawing called Hold - He hates this piece.

 I have spent 20+ hours on a piece of art that frankly, needs to burn. What happened? This drawing is not in anyway what I intended it to be. It fails in so many ways. One: It is drawn sloppily. Two: It is Tacky. Three: It has a labored, overworked feel when you see it upon close inspection. Four: It poses to be more than it is, trying too hard to fit in.
