Faces: the Heart of People

I've been wanting to create this kind of character artwork for more than a couple of years now, inspired by artists such as Monica Zuniga and Kelly Rae Roberts. Here is my first attempt. A little rough on the blending (I used a combo of art pens and acrylics. I think I'll use mostly acrylics next time), but I think overall I like how she turned out and can't wait to make more. Her dress is made of vintage sheet music over which I painted.

Domino Effect

Here's a series of domino art I made in a workshop earlier this month. These were so fun and easy! I used alcohol ink pens for the color and Stayz-On for the image base. Each step was protected by a matte finish coating to protect.

Two spreads in a journal RR

Here are two spreads I did last night in artist Terri N-W's journal round robin. Her theme was Pierrot/harlequin/Marcel Marceau/jesters, etc.

(My scanner cut off the pages a little, but you can get the gist of it.)
