I was inspired by a photograph that a friend of mine put up on Instagram for this drawing. My friend is the awesome crazy author Ksenia Anske who writes really weird and cool fantasy / horror books and gives them away for free (Or you can buy them, your choice)!
Recently I’ve tried to loosen up and work a little more fluidly, otherwise the perfectionist in me fights me all the way to redo tiny bits and things take forever. So for this one I drew on watercolor paper (that doesn’t take well to erasing) and worked only in 8B so that I really had to commit to where I was going to put lines down.
It was an interesting experiment and I have another coming up soon with the same technique so enjoy!
2014 was an amazing year. Sure it will full of downs as well as ups but for me it was a year of learning. Learning new techniques, learning to be patient, learning to let go and learning to put myself out there without being ashamed of asking for what I need.
I decided that a summary of art was in order so that we could see what I accomplished in 2014. I’m still convinced that Antinous is my best piece yet but I’m determined to try to top it this year in 2015! Which one do you like best?
