Looking for something?

Illustration Friday: Contained

This is another one that's been sitting in my sketchbook for a while. Also, I've been thinking a lot about the song "Jet Ski" by Bikini Kill this week. ("Ain't got no candy for you!) This one is watercolor.

This one is (obviously) colored pencil, which I haven't done in a while. Watercolor just tends to be so much faster & easier, especially when covering large grounds. But I love the feeling of just drawingdrawingdrawing. If I have time to finish I might do a third. I still have ideas, which I do eventually, regardless of time as it relates to I.F.

  1. I love them both... the first is quite funny, and the second, while also funny visually, is kind of thoughtful as well. Nicely rendered on both accounts.

  2. These are amazing! I love the face in the second one, but the body contortions in the first are pretty amazing! Great work!
