flux













Has it really been more than 2 months since I've posted anything? I'm LAGGIN!!! Well, it's probably not the best idea to be the most open-book artist on the planet. Everyone can see my process, and my many insecurities along the way. BUT, I love the process. I love the drawing. So here is the evolution of one of my most recent pieces. I wanted to go back and explore the idea I worked on with "clarity at the end of things", but hopefully a little better executed. I really like repetition and contrast (or the lack of contrast) in the desaturated figures. This piece is not even completely finished. I'll post it. yah. Thanks to everyone for generous comments. I like those
