High Lonesome

For IF: I'm not sure she wants be be rescued....

This is my new one, a companion to Runaway. They will both be at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids MI, at the YMCA venue in September.
I just found out what High Lonesome means.

Amended Heart

Today's IF prompt is perennial. One thing about hearts is that they keep coming back for more, no matter what they've been through.

While I was preparing for classes, this little illustration fluttered out of one of my books. The cracks in the heart make it more beautiful, don't you think? Here's to healing hearts. And their perennial nature.

The Invisible Woman Makes a Brief Appearance

It's been so long since I posted that I thought I should get something up here. I'm warming up for my drawing classes this fall with this one. It's likely to change, but at least there is proof I didn't get lost in NY, and sometimes, it's just nice to draw a face.
    I saw a ton of art this summer. One my favorite artists that I encountered was Aya Uekawa: . She is doing some interesting things with mixing Japanese flatness with western 3D. I think I'm going to try that out with this drawing by cropping out the background in Photoshop and collaging in a pattern. It might not work with charcoal, though. We'll see how it goes.
