Drawing Table

I finally took a few pictures of my studio. This is my drawing table set-up. Yes, pretty much everything in my studio is this jam-packed.

Now you know why I felt strangely at home when I saw the studio of Henry Darger.

Birth of Longma

Here's a little bit of process for Longma, the Dragon Horse.

The original page from Young People's Natural History was scanned & printed archivally, then I began adding thin layers of paint (Golden Fluid Acrylic, sometimes with a touch of Golden Open Medium).

Between the first & second scans of the painting, I added a wash of green to the image area. Unfortunately in doing so I lost all the detail from the original zebras, which I'd hoped to have faintly showing through in the final. But so it goes!

The final art is on my Oddments & Curiosities blog.
