Salacious Encounters with Poorly Crafted Beings

Book Cover Art, Cover Art, Comic, Art With Words, Humor

I am working on a series of paintings called, "Illustrated Titles." I love Books, Titles, Book Cover Art and Literature. Sometimes I make paintings faster than I write and sometimes it's the other way around. "Illustrated Titles" gives me the space to create and present Cover Art for Cover Art's sake.

Artistic Process: "The Winners," version 2

art, sketches, ink, drawing, painting, painting in ink, carnival, carnivalesque, color, illustration, moleskine, notebook

After doing the initial sketch (that you will find in the post beneath this one) I decided to add color to the image. I used india ink, acrylic ink and acrylic paint all on moleskine paper. I got a little carried away. The paper wrinkled quite a bit but I've grown to like the effect. I liked the initial black and white image but I was bothered, even though this was a notebook sketch, by the stray pencil and pen markings and the places where, if you look closely, you can see the white out. I'm deciding whether or not to develp this into a bigger piece on canvas panel using acrylic paint and pen. I like the carnivalesque costumes and the expressions on their faces.

"A created thing is never invented and it is never true: it is always and ever itself.” Federico Fellini

This painting is called, "Seven."

I drew "Seven" in my sketchbook, yesterday, with pencil and pen then painted it with acrylic and ink. After staring at it for awhile and hearing the number, "Seven", in my head, twice, I decided to call it that.
