And now, for your viewing pleasure, two drawings: one old, one new. See? I told you there’d be drawings
This week’s Illustration Friday was “Voices,” vague and potentially creepy enough that I was excited to draw for it. Too bad about reality and all that. With last minute holiday preparations I haven’t had time to get much drawing done at all, and I know it’s only going to get worse as the week goes on, so instead I decided to post this old drawing from my BFA days which I think fits the theme.
The above drawing is part 2 of my 5 drawing series, “Wings,” my BFA thesis at Notre Dame. I’ve used the last drawing in the series for an IF theme before. The last drawing, and the other three, can all be viewed on my portfolio if you’re interested. All five drawings are illustrations from my novel Lost Child of Summer, which did not exist when these were drawn. The novel is my MFA thesis. I finished the rough draft in October and hope to be done with editing by the end of January.
I did manage to get some drawing this week. I finally got around to inking what will be the header image for this blog. I posted the pencil version earlier this month. Right now I don’t have time to figure out how to extend the image beyond the header area, but I thought you might like a sneak preview, so here you go:
If you click on either image it will bring you to a larger version. Probably worth it especially for the thesis piece, which was originally 11X17 and super high detail. Any comments or critiques are welcome!
