I feel I have had a bit of an art block lately, I mean I have been really busy with commissions and haven’t been able to draw my own thing yet when I have had time I just have not found the inspiration…

But finally after some great inspiration from a cutout from some magazine I bought probably two years ago I was able to create something… I don’t take full credit for the base of this idea, the girls face with the jelly snake lollies hair and face features was from a photo –from the magazine- I drew from :)
It was such a spoofy idea that I just had to draw it and sadly with only the cut out of the photograph from the magazine I don’t know -what magazine or what the photographer was called –or what-
………So I apologise!! Really I do if anyone out there is shitty I can’t credit for that idea…
-it cant be helped-

:skullbones: :heart: :skullbones:
When I started this I loved how the face and jelly snakes came out… I’m so proud of my shading, it look very real and alike the photographed jelly snakes :) but then I started to have a block and really died on ideas…
I started fiddling around with this background grungy look and ripping bits out of a newspaper…
Then one thing led to another…

I do not really like this an awful lot, it lets me down for several reasons…and it may be hard for your guys to see what’s exactly happening

:skullbones: :heart: :skullbones:
This image was heavily created to –nine inch nails- one of my fav bands –as most- and listening to the lyrics on the album –fragile- along to the soothing musical business the image came to be as it is…
The girl reminds me of a young medusa, like medusa’s daughter or perhaps medusa when she was young :) she has power and strength although a inner sadness…..a longing,
for she can not look at anyone without turning them into stone, *as medusas power goes* and everyone fears her powers, so no one looks at her beauty to see what she is really about. She rebels, scratching ink into her skin, showing her pain on the outside… and perhaps taking drugs to ease her pain? –the syringe butterflies-

It’s like her drugged up world… beauty falling from grace…
The skies are full of dark clouds and ravens screaming…

I think she is looking for someone.









:skullbones: :heart: :skullbones:
I used Faber castel watercolour pencils and dirty paint brush water add some black ink
I do think its funny, my images lately have been very in love
And that simply is because I am very in love…

But that’s what you get my art reflects me, and my moods.
enjoy
xoxo

I don't know if I've commented on this before but if I have, I have to comment again. I might be buying this as a shirt.
Everybody has different opinions you know, but I think this is my favourite of all your works. You have so many different styles represented in this piece, and you've made them all work together. It's beautiful, but rebellious.
I know you put so much thought and effort into your art. It's tangible.

It's beautiful and amazing.

The Artist always sees and notices things that no other person will ever notice, you saw how you wanted it to look in your mind and you have certain things that you feel you need to include into the piece and if you feel that you didn't do it, the peice isn't what it could have been so there fore, it's not that well liked.

Understandable.
But nonetheless.
Amazing.

Poisoned eyes, jelly snake medusa hair... Who can't relate to the feeling that we ourselves are poison, if only someone had built up a tolerance to the awful things we do to find that tiny, sweet core that yearns to love and be loved. I wonder, is this piece a warning or a plead? I love that I can't answer that. I love that I know this girl, she's me, and she's you, and she's every stranger whose eyes you couldn't bear to meet.

I think I'm favoriting this based more on your description than the piece itself. I love when an artist has a whole lot of stuff to say about the piece because it really meant that much to them.

I really like the idea behind this piece. The jelly snakes and the syringes are interesting. In your description you said u found issues with it. I'd say that the snakes are so cool, I want to see more of them at the top, perhaps even snaking down the sides creating a border for the figure, instead of being cut off by the black. But I really like the overall tone and colors. It really caught my eye.
