    I got a bug to draw a castle. Unfortunately, the two people are more interesting to me. Now I'm drawing people.

    I really love this series with the geometry and bright colors.

    Thank you.

    I'll be entering this piece and two others in a Fine Arts show next month, a first for me.

    Very Mondrian.
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    I got some new pens and have been doing copies of images from Alice in Wonderland. I'm trying to work on hands and feet.

    I love the floating hat motif—shades of Gentlemen Ghost.

    Here's a bit of Alice in Wonderland fan art inspired by Solfe's drawings above.

    I was both fascinated and frustrated with Alice in Wonderland and it's sequel as a child. Fascinated, because they were not quite children's books with their dark landscapes and edgy characters. Frustrated, because at times they read like a conspiracy to drive a little girl batty. I have to give credit to the character of Alice for her patience and forbearance. Unlike her, I think I would have gone madder than a hatter long before meeting Humpty-Dumpty.



    Vector art and Photoshop.

    Thanks Solfe.

    While I'm still on the bookish theme, here's a recent experiment with type and texture.

    Are all of these still in ink or is it digital? I just can't get pens to work like that, and I suspect it isn't the pens that are the problem.

    Hi Solfe

    Yeah, these are digital, but they usually start out as pencil or ink. In the drawing below I started with pencil on 2-ply Bristol paper and inked over the pencil with a Windsor & Newton series 7 brush. (You can still see some of the pencil in her right foot) With India ink I just prefer a brush to a pen as you get a nicer variety of line-work. Then I scanned it into Photoshop and added some color. Unfortunately with digital media, I usually succumb to the temptation to transfer it from program to program and just plate over everything with colored pixels, which kinda kills the spontaneity of the original drawing. You learn a lot, but it can get pretty stiff-looking. The computer's lettering is a lot better than mine though.

    Traditional media this time. A study in oil paint of a refugee's face done on gesso primed paper.

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.
