Paper Pushers in Progress

Busy as a beaver... a beaver with 10 new pieces due in a couple of days.

Here are some tantalizing teasers of the drawings transferred and paintings and whatnot:

Sometimes things don't work out like you want... the border bled on this one so I got messy with gouache to experiment (since I knew I'd be completely re-doing it anyway.) So, I usually toss out my bloopers but I thought I'd see if any of you lovelies who check my blog regularly would like it? Kinda like a thank you for your support; just post a comment saying you want it and give me an address to mail it to.

Here it is:

"Luzon Bleeding Heart (I fucked up)"
gouache and ink on stonehenge

(Luzon Bleeding Hearts are a beautiful species of Dove with markings that make them look like they've been shot in the heart. Look em' up and marvel!)

I'm originally from the Philippines and have never heard of this bird before. Thank you for the new wrinkle in my brain. :)

Your works are lovely as usual, but I am now partial to that Luzon painting. Can't wait to see them all completed.

Show everything that you are comfortable with. A blog is for work in general, I think. It's fascinating to see all your process and experiences, though I wouldn't be comfortable with it myself. If no one claimed that piece, I'll take it whenever you're around school!

Hell yeh I want it!

It's not messed up, rather a happy accident!

This would get framed and be an awesome adition to my very own growing art collection.

Oh... Just noticed, did you already give it away?! Haha, sorry!

Ha ha ha, oh wow, you guys are really awesome. This one has already been given away but based on the reaction I'm going to start doing this on a regular basis (I fuck up frequently, ha ha) so keep checking back!

Seriously, I can't tell you how much it means to me to have people who check my blog regularly and leave me such lovely comments, it makes me feel a little less... hermitic.

Thea Schultheiss said...

Oh shame! But congrats to the prompt winner!

I only found your blog a couple of months ago, but man I'm hooked, your work is awesome and beautifully original.

Can't wait for your next exquisite "fuck up"! Yeeehaaw!!
