Allan Innman, You Look Fabulous Dahling! oil on canvas, mounted to oval panel, 15.5 x 12 inches, 2013
So I’ve been doing some new things. Doing a little bit of figurative work. This is a fairly recent piece. I never knew how much hair could be in a beard!

Now that I’m in grad school I’ve had no time to post or play on tumblr. But here is a quick drawing I did last night. I’ve been experimenting with the slinky form. This is spray paint and charcoal on paper.
I hadn’t mentioned this on tumblr, but I’m going to grad school! I’m headed to Athens, Georgia this fall to study at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at The University of Georgia. I couldn’t be more excited. Honestly, I didn’t think I was gonna get in! So I’m more than thrilled to be a candidate.
I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for years. After waiting for the right time - the time is now. Hopefully the post-undergrad years have allowed me to mature and hone my skills. I’m glad I didn’t rush into it.
UGA has an amazing program and is one of the best in the southeast. I’d be one of around 100 grad students in many different areas. I’ll be studying Drawing and Painting in a brand new 40 million dollar building complete with state-of-the-art facilities. Let’s hope I can still paint a few toy paintings, but who knows what I’ll be painting! I hope at least paintings with pop culture references. Just wanted to let all y’all know… - Allan
