The folks at Breckenridge Distillery asked me to paint their logo on the new restaurant they were building in Breckenridge, Colorado. This was a pretty simple job, and that’s probably why it turned out so good. The carpenter used some materials to give the wood a charred finish, love it, looks awesome. And being that the logo is pretty vintage looking, it makes the painting look that much cooler. Thanks to Bryan for letting me take a crack at this project, looks great.
The painting was done using a projector and some basic house paint from the folks at Ace Hardware.
By the way, if you haven’t been to Breckenridge Distillery or if you haven’t tried any of their spirits, I highly recommend it. Great flavor, high end flavor, and always goes down smooth. Awesome folks working their as well.
I absolutely love art. I absolutely love design. And I absolutely love combining the two. I think it’s the perfectionist in me that likes applying a grid system to art. What I don’t love though, is sitting in front of my Macintosh for hours on end everyday. I recently noticed that I’ve been spending way too much time designing graphics in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and not enough hands on work. Catch my drift? I find myself now and again thinking “CONTROL – Z” when I goof up something in the real world. Gotta get away from this freag’n brain washing instrument and back to the real thing.
My goal is to get more into an analog state of mind. I sort of get the impression that this whole digital era completely detaches us from what it means to be human. I’m hoping that in the next few months I’ll get away from so much digital design and more involved with physical hands-on design such as letter press or screen printing. I find that when I’m able to work with my hands (verses a keyboard or mouse), I find a stronger sense of reward for accomplishing a creative design. With that said – this whole computer information age sucks you into an alternate reality, giving you the misconception that all this online nonsense is real. What a joke!
My “Live Now” painting is coming along. It’s not quite finished but well on its way. I’m surprised I haven’t tossed it in the trash though. We’ll see what the future holds for this so-called piece of art. Time will tell. Live Now painting by Chris Scott at Hi-five Design.
This poster style painting is coming along. I’m curious to see what the end result will be. Hopefully I don’t end up crumpling it up and tossing it in the trash. We’ll see what happens when it’s done. Live Now painting by Chris Scott at Hi-five Design.
Indian Ink painting by Chris Scott at Hi-five Design. I spent the last few hours sketching out a new art piece titled “Live Now”. There’s still a long ways to go on this fine art painting, but a good start for now. Canvas size is 22″x30″ on 300 lb. water color paper. I originally designed this poster style painting in Adobe Illustrator. My concept for the drawing comes from Eckhart Tolle’s book “The Power of Now. He talks about how live changing it can be to truly live “Now” and not to worry about the past or the future. “Nothing ever happened in the past and nothing will ever happen in the future, it will happen now”. Eckhart Tolle couldn’t have been more right on. I’ve found that if I can allow my egocentric mind to rest from repetitive thought, I’m able to relax and enjoy the simple beauty of being alive and breathing. This Indian Ink painting is meant to symbolize living now (before it’s too late). Because if you’re wrapped up in constant thought or worry when you should be focusing on what’s in front of you at the present moment, the world is going to slip by. Every now and again, take the time to have a look around, take in the beauty of the present moment and always embrace whatever lies in front of you.
David Rockefeller “The Devil in Disguise” painting by Chris Scott at Hi-five Design. I’ve always had a fascination with the corrupt elite. The Illuminati, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Free Masons, Rothschild Family, Rockefeller Family. These global elite continue to wage a war on your mind, on your soul. It’s hard to comprehend how someone can have such distaste for life, for human beings. It’s very clear they’re more human than being. This painting of David Rockefeller depicts the fascist, neo-nazi, satanic filth that his family represents.
