WORKBOOK Blog - Workbook Latest Additions: September 28th-October 4th

and here is the link to my portfolio  http://www.workbook.com/portfolios/lars_erik_robinson



Here is a new bio I wrote for it:

Biography

Lars-Erik Robinson was born in Morristown, New Jersey in 1971.  I began receiving commissions at an early age of 12 where my quick drawing and painting styles were influenced by the early Hip-Hop culture. Graffiti art is what ignited a spark in me and I eventually went to school earning a BFA at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota Florida, USA in1994.

Discovering a love for drawing caricatures has lead to assignments in restaurants, retail booths at Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach, carnivals, Special events, and trade shows. I also spend time teaching art, giving lectures, and participating in conferences where I paint caricatures live,both digitally and traditionally. Because of my love for traditional painting, I have impressed a national client list by perfecting a technique to work digitally that looks traditional, which allows me to meet today's strict deadlines.

Lars now lives with his wife of 20 years, his 15-year-old son and two Golden Retrievers, Jack and Jill. He is heavily involved with his church, spending time with his family, watching movies, listening to music, and drawing, and more drawing!

Three family Caricature


While I was working at my Art booth at Pier 60 Sunset Festival on Clearwater beach I approuched by family to draw thier son, later she said she would send me a photo of her family. The mother did send the photo and I did a studio retail style Black and White Caricature for her. I used Magna Studio for the inking and the Photoshop cc for the coloring. The price for a drawing like this is $30 a person (so for Three people it came out to $90) color can be added for another $8 more a person.

Robin Williams RIP

This Caricature portrait of the young comedian and actor Robin Williams was in honor of him and his family. It was a great shook to me to hear of his passing, and that he was last one I would have thought dealt with depression. I sketched him in Sketchbook Pro, and colored in Photoshop. It took me about 5-6 hours to paint. I feel so bad for the family he left behind!

New Self Portrait and other news!

Hello,
I am sorry it has been awhile since I posted on my Lars Blog.
New things in the works, is that I will be having some new printing options with Marketing Orbit.
 I was picked out of a hat from their Facebook page, and won a free printed T-Shirt. So I decided to finish a self Portrait of my self to use on the back of the shirts I will be getting.
I had a great conversation with a very talented Master artist and friend that I really admire from Thomas Fluharty, and I loved how he not just help me realize that I had to study anatomy, but also gaave me an encouragement to not give up on finding my artist from with in and continued to pray with me! Here is a sample of his work!
I need to get back to feeding the puppies and straightening the house before the wife comes home so here is my latest self portrait of myself. I would love to hear feedback if the texture works, should I use this as my promo portrait or is it to fat :)
This one does not have any extra noise or Oil Paint texture
In this version I added to Noise and a Oil Painting filter in Photoshop CC.
