My latest ACEO drawing for my on going “Illustrated Lyrics” project.
I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. Partly from all that’s been going on in my country and partly from coming to the realization that the level of realism I’m striving to achieve in this drawing is going to take a bit more time than I had anticipated. Pointillism is truly a technique that tests one’s patience and will.
Getting some inking done on my current ACEO drawing, although at the moment I can’t say that it looks like much. This is going to be my first piece completely inspired by song lyrics. I have a couple of song lyrics written down that I’m working on creating my own artistic interpretation of. I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for a few years and now that I feel most comfortable with doing ACEO drawings I figured I’d give it go. So here I go off on a new project. 😊
Well my Dark Wing series has come to an end. “Essence” is the third and final drawing of my avian beings with tattooed moon glyphs. I thought about extending the series but I don’t want to over do it. So I’m on to something new, something involving song lyrics. Music plays a big part of artistic inspiration for me and I’ve been tossing around this idea of creating some art based on song lyrics. So I’m up for giving it a shot. Stay tuned and see what transpires. 😊
Here’s “Hope”, the second completed drawing to the Dark Wing series. Just one more to go, which I am calling “Essence”. I’m hoping to have it finished some time later on this week. At the moment I feel myself in need of a brief break from doing series so I’ve been thinking of doing a few stand alone pieces. I’ve also been mulling over the idea of possibly adding short prose, quotes, very short fiction pieces or even song lyrics to accompany my drawings. I’ve have bits and pieces of stories and prose floating around in my head that I want to do something with so I figured maybe I could illustrate these stories and write them out on the back of the matte that my drawings are mounted to. It’s just a thought. Nothing definitive just yet but I’m open to here your thoughts on the idea. 😊
