Welcome doodle for the Year of the Rabbit!
First commission of the year in progress — inspired by my mural in Bristol, for a couple from the neighbourhood who walk by the mural nearly every day
Started a not-so-random random doodle. ("Not-so-random" because it's Chinese New Year soon, and it will be the Year of the Rabbit! :P)
Excited to be participating in the #ColorInQuarantine activity :) Here's my first completed page!
"Parts Unknown," Acrylic on Canvas, 18x24 Some actions we will never know the reason behind, and, quite honestly, we don't always need to know the answer. Anthony Bourdain committed suicide on June 8th, 2018, news that was shocking for most to hear. People continue to speculate what could have caused him to commit suicide, some feel he had more to do, to say before he died. Personally, I find there's some feeling of closure or completeness to his death. I don't know what the feeling is exactly, but it's there. It feels like he left on his own terms, decided it was time. I wouldn't consider his death as him waving a white flag to addiction and depression. He said his shows were intended to tell other's stories, tell them frankly and truthfully. It's interesting how blunt and honest he could seem to be about himself, though he kept so many layers held within. Although we'd love to have a clear cut answer, explanation, reason, what would knowing that information change?
This is Kraken Cottage. A little logo I was asked to do. Great fun it was too!

Reminder to love yourself
For the past years I have been mainly painting in acrylic. But since my last show I have taken this time to return to my love of drawing and am mostly experimenting. I am using fountain pen for the first time and really enjoying it.
I enjoy bringing a bit of story-telling and hopefully ambiguity into my drawings. Done with my TWSBI fountain pen and watercolour in my moleskine
Fountain pen and watercolour in my moleskine. This was a lot of fun, but challenging to balance what to colour and what to leave.

My newest doodle, created out of quarantine boredom and re-opening anxiety :0 oh well!
This is that black and white doodle from the other day, all colored in! I want to eventually make an adult coloring book, maybe this could be one of the pages? Just a thought!
