Sully the Cat (Portrait)

December 22nd, 2013

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a lovely client on the website CustomMade. She had a cat who had recently passed away and she wanted to memorialize him for her boyfriend. Luckily, I was able to help her realize her vision. Here’s the result!

“Sophy was great to work with — she gave me samples and ideas to choose from which helped guide the process toward the perfect end result. I am thrilled with the finished drawing, and would highly recommend Sophy to others!” -Emily

And here’s a link to my CustomMade profile, where you can request a portrait of your own: http://www.custommade.com/by/sophytuttleart/

Zanate

October 8th, 2013

Today I drew a Zanate at the request of a friend. The Zanate (or Quiscal) is a kind of crow they have down here in Mexico. It’s smaller and sleeker than our Corvus brachyrhynchos.

Oaxaca

October 8th, 2013

I’m back in Oaxaca for the next few months! I’m so happy to be back here and working on my Mexican mythology series. This collection on work will be drawings, paintings, and (hopefully) sculptures that depict my interpretations of some of the classic Mexican folk tales. I’ve been reading The Hero with A Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell and trying to relate these stories to his ideas on archetypes and the hero’s journey. Here is the first finished drawing…

 

 

This is Princess Iztaccihuatl. She and her lover Popocatepetl died in a tragic situation similar to Tristan and Isolde. The gods took pity on them and turned them into Mexico’s biggest volcanoes. Occasionally when Popo thinks of Izta, he spews a thick cloud of ash.

Progress Shots of Dog Portrait

April 8th, 2013

I recently completed a dog portrait for a friend of her little pup, Charlie. I took photos while I was working on it so I could show it coming together. I love seeing this when other artists do it, so I thought I would share my own… I used Arches watercolor paper for this, as well as some good old Micron and prismacolor pens.

Backlash Beer Co.

November 20th, 2012

A little while ago, Backlash Beer Co. asked me to illustrate the labels for their next 4 beers. These beers are based on the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Conquest, War, Famine, and Death. They were a lot of fun to draw and it’s really exciting to see them on the bottle. Conquest is out in fine liquor stores across Massachusetts right now, with War slated to be released in December. Here’s a peek at Conquest:

Smithsonian Drawings

June 26th, 2012

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the DC Zoo and the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. Both are fantastic and you should go if you get the chance. While I was there pretending to be 12 again I got to draw some of the skulls and skeletons on display at the museum. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I also took about 200 hundred pictures of animals (both alive and stuffed!) Here’s a sample of some of the sketches. More to follow I’m sure!
