Today I spent the day going through a lot of work, old and new, trying to figure out what to add to my portfolio. It was refreshing to go back and take a look at a good chunk of my history as an artist, and I got to dust off a few pieces worth of publication. In that pile of forgotten work I came across this piece that I very much enjoy. This is my friend Colleen and this is how I see her. Yes, she is a gorgeous fairy tale creature who never ceases to show her true colors, even when the weather turns gray and gloomy.
This drawing is the result of the combination of an admissions essay question and Muse’s The 2nd Law. It is interesting to see that this is what I’m choosing to represent myself, but my artistic process is very chaotic and subconsciously driven, and trying to control the outcome would mean cheating myself. So here it is. This is who I am.
