Why we do what we do.
LoganWolfARTS is where I, Marino Martínez also known as Logan M. Wolf, present my artistic endeavors. It has been my goal to create art that is fresh, different, and yet classic.
I come from a Fine Arts background, but developed my skills while traveling the world and meeting other great artists. I’ve been however been doing crafts from before going to art school (19 years strong on 2023).
Why I do this.
Making art has been my life for almost two decades. Doing beautiful things that will then enchant you for generations to come is a dream come true. That’s why I focus on creating quality pieces and stories. Also, by working the handcrafts in a “collection” system that requires me to design, sketch, test and research, I ensure a product that is up to par with the international market of great quality jewelry. By working stories and illustration together it is true that the process becomes longer, but well fed with references, studies of character and graphic style to fit the story and illustrations alike.
How I do it.
The "How" involves you. The world you love and how I connect that love. The Empathy. By understanding your wishes, affections and connections, I can create wonderful art that brings your dreams to life. The wish to immortalize your loved ones, to connect your generations with beautiful relics... the pleasure of making your imagination a reality, that is how I achieve my goals.
What I do.
The main activities LWA is known for are:
-Making and teaching the art of macramé
The macramé is made with top of the line waxed polyester thread. The dream catchers are made with metal, vine and bamboo rings, and nylon waxed thread. The handcrafts are, as it name refers, all made by hand, with the exception of stone shaping. Thanks to the materials used, I can guarantee that they are made to last. One main ingredient of my crafts is the stones and minerals with which I adorn them. I have a moderate inventory of quality stones for my creations and your commissions.
In my my workshop I teach all my skills in the arts of knotting, also known as macramé. I prepare text and tutorial material through PDF’s that I create. Dividing small groups from basic to advanced I share the little knowledge I may have in hopes of growing the community.
The short novels are all written and illustrated by me. They come from concepts that grow little by little until reaching a “full story” status. The process is very much parallel to the illustrative process. Once the story is finished and reviewed, I hire a third party to proofread and spell-check it while I work on finishing the Illustrations and preparing them for scanning or photographing. The third party returns the revised story and I proceed to do all the digital mounting for a proper book, be it printed or digital (kindle or pdf).
Illustrations start at the sketch table. They are normally associated with the short novels, but are also available for commissions. I work with thick paper and, depending on the format and materials, may or may not laminate the original once finished. Some illustrations are even framed by me as part of their design.
