Over the weekend i had time to finish up the lino and did a test pencil rubbing in a blue china marker pencil. I am considering using this as the first inside page of the new zine on a sheet of velum over the inside booklet. I need to find a red china marker tonight. going on the hunt...

#12 OF 13

Here is one of the last illustrations for the artshow. i will be showing this piece on its path to being finished. with a final shot of it in the frame.

here is a scan from a small thumbnail that will be blown up to 8x10 and revisited with darker lead. I usually start with thumbs about 1" wide and so on tall. this helps me insure that the space will be interested from a great distance, now for me to make it interesting closeup.

Here is the second step. i have redrawn this over a scaled back 10% print out of my original thumbnail at a size close to 8x10. this also allows me to crop my thumbnail appropriately with
illustrator as to the size i am framing.

graphite on hotpress board 9x13 initial scan, will be followed with a tweaked version with the reds applied.
graphite/ red graphite on hotpress board nearing the final stretch.

dye spray to age the image, unless i have the temptation to add anything else i will be posting an image of this in a frame soon

okay i have some art that has become quite the headache in the floor of the art room. So if you would like to have any of these just send me an offer and pay for shipping. These pieces are from my" Dandyland of failure" series in 2008. so they look way different then the direction i have been taking as of recent, but these guys are fun. i just don't have the room for them anymore. if you would please email me at just title the email garage sale or something to that matter so i can find it :D I will be taking down the pieces spoken for to make matters easier.

dont be shy, make me a offer, and pay for shipping. plus you will be funding my art budget! :D
btw, think reasonably cheap, not looking to get rich.
