Snippets of ATC's

One of the deadlines that's been looming for me is for an Artist Trading Card book by Bernie Berlin. I need to produce four different cards, each with an assigned technique. I'm so used to just letting my art "happen", meaning that I don't plan ahead the techniques or images, but instead I just work intuitively, using whatever seems appropriate once the piece starts to take shape. So having to do art that specifically addresses different techniques was a little hard, because I sort of had to think backwards. But they're small pieces, so that made it a little easier. I don't think I should show the whole cards since they'll potentially be in the book, but I think it would be okay if I just showed little snippets. So here's what I've worked on the past couple days...

Corey, I have always admired how you put current photos of you and yours into your work... Your style is so unique and special, it always works!!!

Hi Corey!
I am under the same deadline, and have struggled SO bad with this (the assigned technique) especially since the ones I was assigned.. were ones I NEVER EVER have used! YIKES!!!!
I am freaking out.. only a few more days to get them done..
I just HATE being told what to do! :)
p.s. good to meet you at AF vendor night!

Let us know when the book is published so we can see the whole pieces! Dieing here!

It's good for you to work outside of your comfort zone(s)! I think these teaser snippets looks very cool and I can't wait to see the entire cards!

i just found your blog - love your work corey! I experienced the same discomfort pulling my four together for Bernie's book - i am most comfortable working intuitively, never knowing where I'll end up....
