New Stone Drawing
Sorry I haven't posted for a while but I misplaced my quick camera (just found it near the printer under a pile of stuff). Starting a new stone drawing for a small edition of 25 prints. The theme of the portfolio exchange is about "Sex and Gender". Hope to finish my drawing and etch it tonight then print Thursday. Busy, busy, busy. Need to order grit and Korn's crayons today.
Even though my subject is about cross-dressing genders, I must say after I was well into this drawing I saw a BIG influence from Joe Coleman's painting, "Mommy Daddy" (see above). Think it was lurking in my head all along. Well, here's homage to Joe Coleman, I've always loved Outsider Art.
Still shipping out portfolios on top of everything. Will be great to get my studio back. The retrofitting of old boxes takes a long time and the boxes don't look very safe to ship. So I finally broke down and ordered better boxes to ship "The Hidden Room" portfolios along with bubble pack. This should make the remaining shipping go faster.
