Hey look at this I’m on a f*cking roll here. This is like the third post this week… I just finished this sketch that had 6 previous incarnations. What I wanted was a girl longing for someone to the right of her, at a cafe. I am going to finish this as a painting on a large canvas (24″x30″, still not sure if I’m going to do acrylic or oil. There will also be another image to the right which will have the interest. The idea behind this is I want to start dabbling in fine art and pushing the boundary of what is cartooning or illustration and fine art. As these two field blur you start to find cross over like Makoto Aida’s works. I know its Japanese but it has definitely influence American culture at least in how I was brought up, thus my art tends to hearken back to Anime instead of UPA. That said that is the reasoning behind the style. The over arching theme is feelings, there will be others as well as variants, this one is longing.
PS – crits are welcome!
