And I'm sorry to whichever man should meet my sorry state.

It has been an exceedingly busy week. I feel flustered and tired. Whew.
This is a new piece/pieces (they'll be printed together in the article) that I finished up for the upcoming issue of Muse Magazine.

The article had to deal with Memory and techniques people use to remember things, like an entire deck of cards in order. It was a fun and unusual assignment and I enjoyed doing it a lot.

Destiny's Child attacking Franz Schubert with their purses.

Lord Admiral Nelson holding a guitar upside down.

In a broader artistic related note,
music is incredibly important to my artistic process, and will often contribute to the quality and mood of my work. I have been listening to a lot of British music recently and, consequently, I have fallen in love. Ms. Laura Marling is only 18, but I find her songs beautifully written and clever. Her voice is also to die for and makes me very jealous that I have absolutely no musical talent. Give her a listen:

Poor Mr. Schubert! And the admiral is conspicuously missing an arm?? Unhappy fellows!

Thank you so much for your comment! I am really excited about where this new style is taking me.

Wow. I love your style! Your ability to capture so much with limited linework and flat color is stunning! LOVE IT!

these are grand. Really interesting idea! I'd like to see how they look in their published form. Also, I know what you mean about music. I feel the same. I'll be downloading this Marling girl. She's darling.
