Subterranean....the topic set me thinking, visualizing all the monsters under the earth, waiting to dig their way out, but what if a very pleasant being sits below the surface, ethereal and luminous, creating the splendor we see. A quick illustration with ink and watercolor wash.
I'm fascinated with the humble ball point pen. Years of college doodling has created a love for the look of blue on white-ink on paper. Other than that my compositions seem to be dominated by the human form. In some way or the other it creeps into the drawing and ends up dominating it. After a considerable time I'm letting my pen do the drawing and enjoying it. Here is how the drawing progresses.
I'm glad I'm not a surgeon or a space station navigator. It took me hours to design my blog site and I'm glad the no one died because of that! I'm a "Libran" and if I remember Linda Goodman's sun signswe Librans are very indecisive, so I agonized over colors for my text to fonts to size of letters. And not to mention the title, it had to be just right to fire my imagination and to make me feel quite "artistic". So I've just penned down close to a hundred would-be titles, and thankfully didn't have to wait a year to find the right one. Over the course of this blog I'll be sharing my work and drawings with you, I hope you enjoy them.
