A League of Her Own

It’s been a while since I’ve engaged in the creative process of visual art. But recently, I picked up the pen and just drew without cause. The result wasn’t so bad.

In “A League of Her Own” a model sits uncomfortably on a blue and purple background, the very color which symbolizes the model’s deviance from typical female empowerment. The only theme concentrated on in this drawing is the discomfort of the model, which is of a hyper-realist perspective. The woman’s boyish-femininity, and loose grasp on typical female empowering devices is what came out during my relaxed drawing session.

And I’ve never done this before, but here are some other takes of the drawing (other than the final draft). Perhaps this will grant you some deeper appreciation for the creative process.

A League of Her Own without a background. Notice the cold isolated feel of the drawing. Perhaps the drawing could've become enshrouded in a red blanket-type background. I did my best to place her in a cold environment. (Perhaps even a self-imposed coldness.)

I edited and "sootened" the drawing via a photo edit. This is the extreme message of the drawing. The idealized jaw bones, eyes, thin arms and gleaming clavicle are hyper-realist takes on the imprisoned emotions of an imagined model.

Butterfly (Prototype A -E)

Some art is better than none. I have been busy but here is the elaborate doodles that morphed into fuller drawings.
Yes, you can and should expect similar types of drawings coming along.

No, these are not “pieces” because I just don’t like em’ enough to name em’ and frame em’.

Here are the butterflies.

Faces II

So it turns out that I really enjoy making “Faces.” I have been, and will be, trying to combine features of beauty with that of  disfigurement. Stay tuned and you can be sure to expect more faces…

 

Q: What is her nicest feature?

Q: What is her worst?

Q: Which did you notice first?
