illustration friday - "sacrifice"

things are getting back to normal. now, if i can just get my comix pages done for next week, i'll be in good shape.

i love moleskine sketchbooks. they're so neat! i think it's the yellowish paper, which seems to prevent artist's block somehow. one of my instructors always said "when faced with a blank white page, always start by tinting it with a wash of light color. then at least you've gotten the painting underway."

This piece is powerful! You've done a great job of using washes to really push the central image forward. This can only sound right coming from another artist, "I love the way your red runs and drips."
