I would like to thank the South Shore Distinctly Art Festival staff for selecting my work for the group exhibition. This is the first time exhibiting my work in the Chicago South Shore area. The staff curators did a great job installing the work for the window display; it’s very vibrant and clean, and really catches your attention.
The exhibit has been up since October and will run through March(there will be a close out reception at the end of March). If you happen to be in the south shore area check it out on 71st and Oglesby.
One last note; this is a small part of the Mother Earth Conservation exhibit. Look out for the Conservation Exhibit A sometime this year.

Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist by Stephen Rogers Peck

December 28, 2012

Atlas Of Human Anantomy

I’ve studied out of this book for about a month; along with Andrew Loomis’s Figure Drawing for all its worth and David K. Rubins book on the figure. I must say this is one of the best anatomy books I’ve used. Inside this book you have sharp, great, clear photos and named description’s of the bones and muscles; followed by simplified drawings and shapes, to help you remember  the bones and their form;  in separate sections.

In the next section of the book they have nice b/w photos of nude models to help you train your eyes for surface landmarks on the body. There is also sections on Proportions, comparisons of body parts and alignment, varieties of physiques, male and female proportion in 7 life periods, racial types as well as facial expressions.

Overall I give this book 5 stars, as it was well planned out, informative and easy to follow. If you don’t have this book you should really consider adding it to your figure and anatomy section.

Corel Draw 16 adds some great features in its latest edition

August 1, 2012

I had a chance to check out some of the great new features in the powerful vector drawing and design program in Corel Draw 16. Some of the new powerful but simple tools for drawing are the: Smear, Twirl, Repel and Attract Tools. Attract will pull things together, Repel will push this out, twirl will spin things, Smear will change the shapes dramatically without having to use the pen tool. I think these are great improvements and definetly will save production time; especially if you are creating vector work for story boards, creating vector drawings for animation.

To get a feel for the description of the new tools take alook at the demonstration in the video link below; by expert corel draw user of  “Advanced T Shirt Artist Developer”

What’s New

This is the upgrade you’ve been waiting for! CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 makes everyday tasks faster and easier, delivering new time-savers that help you create with confidence. So many features worth waiting for! CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 offers the tools, the features and the power to enhance all of your design needs.

Take a closer look at the 10 most important reasons to upgrade your graphics software:

  • New! Advanced OpenType® support

    Create beautiful text with advanced OpenType typography features, such as contextual and stylistic alternates, ligatures, ornaments, small caps, swash variants and more. Ideal for cross-platform design work, OpenType offers comprehensive language support, allowing you to customize characters to suit the language you’re working with. Control all your OpenType options from a centralized menu and make contextual changes with interactive OpenType features.

  • New! Custom-built Color Harmonies

    Easily create a complementary color palette for your design. The new Color Harmonies tool, accessed from the Color Styles docker, combines Color Styles into a Harmony, allowing you to modify colors collectively. It also analyzes colors and hues to deliver complementary color schemes—a great way for you to satisfy clients with variety!

  • New! Multiple trays in Corel® CONNECT™ X6

    Instantly find images on your local network and search iStockPhoto®, Fotolia and Flickr® websites. Easily access your content, using the multiple trays now available within Corel CONNECT. And organize content by type or project in trays that are shared between CorelDRAW®, Corel® PHOTO-PAINT™ and Corel CONNECT for maximum efficiency.

  • New! Creative vector shaping tools

    Creatively add effects to your vector artwork! CorelDRAW X6 introduces four shaping tools that provide new creative options for refining your vector objects. The new Smear tool lets you shape an object by pulling extensions or making indents along its outline. The new Twirl tool lets you apply twirl effects to objects. And you can use the new Attract and Repel tools to shape curves by attracting or separating nodes.

MIchael Burton joins the art for conservation.org website

June 29, 2012

Many of you know I’ve been studying art theory, fundamentals, digital, and concept art. Along with my studies I’ve decided to create paintings with purpose; images that can tell a story. This approach will allow my portfolio in progress not to end up like homework studies. The new work turned out to be a conservation project with a fantasy theme. I recently teamed up with the “Art for conservation” community and selected some new material, along with a few of my older pieces to help create messages and spread the word on protecting our home(planet).

Check out some of the new work I’ve been working on before It’s release to the public.

Michael Burton new preview video for his book “Let Me Paint a Picture”

June 23, 2012

This is a book I self published and revised about 2  years ago. The idea to create and publish a book came from my mother after reading two of my written works. The first was “let me paint a picture” which turned out to be the title and epilogue for the book, and Struggle through seasons” a very personal but creative piece about my life.

It took a little over a year to complete the book, and was hard to categorize it since it was put together a little differently than the average book. I settled for calling it a creative memoir. I wrote, illustrated and published, Let Me Paint A Picture: My Life, Growth, and Testimony. The book has given me an even bigger picture about my career and life. Realizing another side of me that loves writing poetry and heavily conscious lyrics. Also, I knew I had a testimony to share with others; especially knowing God had granted me a second chance in life at such an early age; and why I’m so passionate about using my gifts and creating with purpose.

I peeled away at the layers of my life; touching on topics such as: Love, relationships, family, survival, dreams, goals, growing, life and death; journeying from child, to teen and adulthood,
