I decided to do a second series of the carnival girls from my “If This Hat is Missing…” piece, this time all wielding various weapons. Like the last series, I tried to make each one unique in both their props, physical stance, and the personality each suggested. Mirela’s my favorite (for reasons I can’t quite […]
I was inspired to do this piece after seeing a similar-looking (pregnant) woman at an event. There’s something somewhat adorable about pregnant women, as well as admirable in regards to their life-carrying status. Perhaps there’s an unconscious endearment for their vulnerability. The motif is a flower/sun thing, both symbols of life-giving force, blossoming beginnings, and […]
I got it into my head to do a drawing of a witch. But I wanted to push the idea a bit further than a sexy girl in a pointed hat. I also intended it as an image for my growing selection of religious candles. I enjoyed (perhaps not the right word, but close) depicting […]
I finally got around to doing a full length poster of the knife thrower from my music-inspired “If This Hat is Missing…” piece, which completes the series I had done of all the thrower’s girls. The process was basically the same as the others (which I had to go back and re-learn to refresh my […]
I had been wanting for years to experiment with some halftone coloration, so I decided to employ that here. The imagery itself was something that popped into my head in dream state. Whether it deserved to be brought into our reality is anyone’s guess. The title is Latin for “Modern Vampire.” Why Latin? Here’s a […]
This was intended as a French-style Day of the Dead girl, along the lines of “Anastasia.” I hadn’t done a blue one yet, and I felt that color best represented the overall tone of the piece and the girl’s forlorn gaze. Fin.
This is a further exploration of my “Forever Growing Centipedes” piece. It may be too early to say, but maybe the concept has… legs? Seriously, though. I felt like returning to the more graphic style that I used to draw in. Over time I’ve noticed my art is steadily getting more detailed, which isn’t bad […]
Another piece I started and mostly finished at some events.
I did this over the course of a couple events, which as it turns out, are good places to actually get some work done. I fiddled with the colors a lot in post. Originally, I intended it to be a stark almost black-and-white piece (like another one), but ended up adding a lot of color […]
