Gift for La Madre.
I love doing illustrations. I feel I can zone out on these Micron/ Bristol board worlds.
The Medusa Print came from this process.
The process in which I work is I start out with a concept. From the concept I think of visual ways I can communicate to the viewer. I pencil, ink and then crosshatch patterns, shading and designs to draw your eye in.
These are the most common commissions I do for clients. They have been turned to tattoo designs, clothing and framed as gifts.
This one, titled Chain Mail, was created when I saw a grandfather clock. It had chains hanging from the face with medallions beautifully decorated. I figure her face is like the face of the clock; timeless while still counting time.
My mother loved it so I had to give it to her, who better to appreciate something I create then the person who ultimately created me?
These particular illustrations were framed by the AMAZING LIZA DANGER!
