Red Hed

Here's the sketch for this week's Art Jumble. The theme is red heads... I could be cool and creative and take a less-cliched interpretation of the words "red head" but why do that?! I'm gonna treat this one Similarly somewhat to the "brunette" I did a few weeks back, I'd also like to do a blonde for last week's theme and pair it with this one. I have a few days before a new topic...
And I get my cintiq tonight! I can't wait to use it! This'll be my first at-home cintiq. I'm buying it from my good friend, Erin Middendorf, whom inefibly prefers the tablet. It's understandibly a small platform for painting... nevertheless, I can't afford the newer 2000 dollar models... despite my desperate longing for one *sigh*. In other news... to those of you who care about it (Liz) I am so very painfully aware that I'm 3 months behind on my "lady of the month" series... I got stumped on May's painting... I think I got a little too ambitious as well... as it deviates profundly from the aesthetic of it's predessecors. Reflecting upon the series as a whole, I am debating whether or not I should bother continuing with it... many reasons are influencing me. A: there's little place for them in my body of work. It's such a wierd little niche, and there is so little to unify the piceces I've done. B: And looking back, they seem, at least artistically, very trivial to me... the list continues. I've got so many more interesting art endeavors that I could pick up otherwise and I might just do that. I started them, I suppose, to rekindle my forgotten talents with watercolor, gouache, and pen & ink. Which they haven't done as I had hoped. I'll continue to search for ways to explore the traditional media again... but don't expect to see any more lady's of such an ilk.

It's nice to get a mention! Another thing you could do with your time - finish your website :-)
