TJ Drake paints with acrylics on canvas. "Creatures of Habit" Is a series named and designed from inspiration of working at Vitae Distillery. Using abstract backgrounds, bright colors, and the inclusion of animals hanging out with cocktails, was a fun way to say good by to summer in Charlottesville. Each unique piece, starts with a modification of images to create several copies of pixelated prints, then cut them into a set of stencils. After freehand spray painting the backgrounds, the stencils are used one-by-one as layouts for paint application.
