Sid Blaize Was Here

Illustrator/Creative Director/Artist/Fashion Designer and all-around Creative Guru, Sid Blaize sat down with the team at The Bklyn Combine to share some wisdom on his creative process. He also listened to some of our challenges in creating a comic book.

Mr. Blaize has had a long career as an illustrator/artist in the world of fashion and has a rich history. He has worked with many brands like the NBA, NFL, and MLB to name a few. He currently has the Sid Blaize Collection of custom apparel with his one-of-a-kind designs and hand-painted masterpieces emblazoned on the backs of these unique jackets (see Bruce Lee motorcycle jacket).

We are excited to share some of the work we have been creating with oil clay, plaster molds and cotton paper pulp – all in preparation for our hand-made artists books. We are also getting ready for the final AR exhibition in the Smack Mellon galleries in May – hope to see you there!

Mentor Phillip Shung and his team of illmatic illustrators have a new plan for this year’s Art Ready exhibition.

This special ops team consists of Olga, Jayson, Addis, and Peter as well as a few of The Bklyn Combine’s contributing interns. The project is a comic book that will showcase the illustration/artistic skills of each student.

So far, the art is looking quite amazing. We cannot wait to share our finished book with the group.

Stay tuned.

Heejung Cho’s lovely mentees!!

We did wire drawings on panels and now are making hand casts with cement, plaster and plaster wrap. Sculpture making is fun and messy  😀

Great start to our Art Ready classes! We have been making books with handmade papers and are now preparing to make covers using original artwork designed by the students. Next week we are visiting the Whitney Museum of American Art and touring the conservation department – very excited!
