VIDA

Years ago I created textile designs. I no longer have the original paintings but I had color copies. I made them repeat in Photoshop for the various sizes on VIDA. I was not sure how they would turn out, sending them off and hoping for the best. I just received some scarves with my work on them. I’m really happy with the quality of product and the way the patterns look. Visit my shop on http://www.shopvida.com/collections/william-ulrich for more patterns and products.

Flight

Trying to get simple movements down with animation before we try something more ambitious. I took an animation course in college, but I’m 51 and never used it til now. I’m starting to really get into it. I have a sketchbook project from 2012 that I want to animate in some way. This is the first one….. Flight.

Skullbat

Trying out some animation and having a hard time getting it to work anywhere as a gif. Wondering if it works on here. Grant and I have the idea to try out some things. This was a test to see if I could make it work. More to come. I wanted to see if my sketching style worked for this.

Rainy Night Shots

This really became a thing for me in 2016, where I find myself out on rainy nights and fall for the reflections. Mostly in San Francisco but the bus one is from Berkeley. We are going into a week of rain now – they say – so I should have more. Enjoy.

The last thing I did this year.

I do paintings that stage homes for realtors, this helps pay for my studio. The owner always wants new work different work. So in trying to keep them happy I do a handful in one style, so they can mix and match. The last time I tried something different it bombed. In general they like my work. They have returned other artists work but have kept mine. So to redeem myself I did this today, incorporating stencils.

I went to the studio to try to clear some depression, seeing friends helps. It’s been a couple days before I could actually paint anything. At least with this – what they want is color, abstract and innocuous so it doesn’t offend anybody. I like this one and feel I can do a couple more to go with it.
