I need to be making pictures! It's so hard to start them. Too much going on. Too much stress. Too much tension. I do so much better when I can exercise every day, when I get enough sleep, when I can work in my garden, and when I can MAKE ART!
But as far as this week's Illustration Friday topic goes--LAYER--almost all of my pictures are layered. I start with a pencil sketch, then use a mask over the areas that are going to be white, and then spatter the whole thing with ink, then take the mask off, and use technical pens for the rest. I love layers. I love texture.
I don't particularly like THIS picture, but it's what I do. Layers produce texture, and life is all about textures. Life is not a clear clean arrow through time, but a thick texture of experience.
