Picks of the Harvest Prelims

Hey all!

I'm exhibiting with Thinkspace Gallery this weekend, and up until the show I'll be posting previews and prelims of my work to promote the show.

I'd also like to announce I just sent my work in for the next Safehouse Group show, which will be opening March the 23rd in San Francisco. Really excited to be a part of their shows again.

Here's the first full prelim sketch, just trying to draw in a rhythmic lively way and work out the flow of the piece, it's 19" by 18" pencil, coloured pencil and pastel.

Please note all works are available framed through Thinkspace! Please contact this email if you are interested in buying any :)

In the prelim below,  I kept the pose the same but I'm trying to define the owl creature and it's rotating owl heads, gathered some more reference, I decided to keep the same pose but change the composition. It's 16" by 18"pencil, coloured pencil and pastel.

I wasn't really happy with the way it was heading so I reconstructed the composition, moved parts around etc till it felt much closer to what I wanted. Had to remove the creature and replaced it with flying owls.

More coming soon!


  1. Gorgeous work as usual, Rod! Best of luck with the shows, too. Wish I could be there in person.

  2. Great stuff Rodrigo!

  3. Which piece are you sending to the Safehouse show? I'm gonna start working on mine tomorrow
