After a horrible two weeks of being terribly sick, I am finally back in my studio and working away. It's been a nightmare and I hope to never go through that again. I am still not back to eating much but I can manage to get out of bed and enjoy getting out of the house on short trips. My goal is to enjoy a big, juicy cheeseburger in the very near future but for right now I am still on jello and oatmeal.
While I was in OKC at the Paseo Art Festival, I had a commission request for a new Travel drawing. The customer requested brighter colors and asked that I add a passport image. She also wanted a square rather than full page format. I drug myself up to my studio a couple of days ago and attempted to get her piece going. Now it is finished, scanned and I am waiting to hear if she approves.
6" x 6" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page
The same drawing lettered with a full page format.
When I first scan my work to include on this blog or other online services, I add digital lettering. I like to move it around on the page until it finds the right location to enhance the drawing. My prints then have this digital lettering. However, I hand letter all of the original drawings using sepia watercolor.
