Finding Common Ground


It has been quite some time. Life gets busy and keeping up with a blog is a bit difficult at times. But I wanted to post something, and so I decided to go with one of my all time favorite two-page journal spreads.

It began with a pencil drawing of the portrait - just some random photograph from a magazine. Then I slowly built up layers of watercolor pencil, pen, and collage. The dark strips or actually sections of movie film.

I've always loved to draw, especially portraits. I really like being able to mix the realistically drawn portrait with mixed-media. There is both depth and shallowness to the picture plane and perhaps to the meaning as well.

Just wanted to comment and say I think this is a great blog. There aren't many posts yet but the ones so far are very inspiring. I hope you keep up the great work (and blogging.)
