Illustration Friday: Deja Vu

*******I am totally ignoring the topic this week, because I REALLY wanted to post something. This is actually the second "real" drawing for the resolutions topic--to LIVE so that when it comes time to die you won't find that you haven't lived at all. These folks are LIVING, which is what we should all be doing, all the time. Living in the moment, because this moment, NOW, is all we really have.

It's funny, though, how some moments seem like we've lived them before. There might be some kind of biological, or biochemical explanation for that feeling, but I don't remember it. It seems somehow, in my mind, tied to dreams.....


  1. I really, really love this Theresa, it's just wonderful

  2. She is so beautiful, and really seems to be savoring the moment.
    I never finished my resolutions piece, being in the now was part of it... oh well.
    I really love the feeling of this! Your pen and ink is gorgeous.

  3. ABSOLUTELY Amazing work! Wow! Oh, and Happy New Year! :)

  4. it's a great work this. Love the techniques how you have welded the flattish spatter texture with the more 3d hands and face. It's like Klimt but in black and white.

    The subject looks very spiritual and suits the theme to live admirably

  5. Fantastic!!!!! Wonderful piece!

  6. Great energy to the illustration this week...this is real movement in the figure!

  7. Thanks for the comments on my work for this topic.
    I love yours, and am amazed at the perseverance involved in detailed pen works.
    may you stay in the moment for each pen stroke!!

  8. Love both your artwork and your thoughts on this one.
    to LIVE so that when it comes time to die you won't find that you haven't lived at all.
