“King of the Beasts” is completed. For some reason, it seemed more interesting with parts of it left rough. I’m not sure what, if anything, this drawing has to do with healing. It makes people happy…maybe that’s enough.
Finally got some work done on, what I shall title, “King of the Beasts”. Here’s a work-in-progress shot.
What is it that I need to handle? I’m working from a photograph, with the stuffed animals stopping in the image before I stop my drawing. In other words, I have a lot of empty space to fill, that has to fit the format, so I have to improvise. And that, people, is where artistry steps in and keeps one from just copying a photograph.
As for my long absence…yes, working, two jobs for this week. I’m finally coming up for air. I’m realizing that a lot of my issues have resolved themselves. Just like waking up from a long nights sleep, as I was focusing on work, my subconscious was functioning, smoothing things out in the background. I feel more secure, and my feet more solidly on the ground than it was three months ago.
However, I would NOT want to do it, again.
