Haven't done a painting in so long. It's so nice to pick up a brush, feels just like home. I did some painting outside in the sun, that was fun, but way too hot! I changed the tattoo she has on her arm at the suggestion from a threadless member. I'll be up for voting soon.
I have wanted to do a pirate themed shirt for a long long time. But I just didn't have a theme. Then the subject of scurvy came up not once but twice in class/clinical. Still, this did not draw any inspiration on me at that point. However, while sitting in my Pharmacology lecture last monday, with my attention span completely depleted past half of the lecture, I doodled this:
It was then that I thought of making the pirate into a spokesperson for scurvy. And I knew I needed to work on this ASAP.
Pretty excite about this new piece I am working on. This is not really a part of it. This is just the pattern I need to make, to import into photoshop to use as a texture. Inspired by the Arabian theme of Craig Thompson's new forthcoming graphic novel Habibi. I am currently working on 3 art projects simultaneously. Only one week left before I have to go back to school so I have to make the best of it.
Felt like it needed something else, so I added in these poison dart frogs and some girly flowers. I wanted to add the cryptic skull on the frog's skin. This is an idea I want to further develop on my next painting.
