Almost forgot to get this one in! Bedazzled denim.
Earlier in the year a friend gave me some of this lovely paper with gold leaf to make a buddha. The linocut pulled the leaf right off using my usual, admittedly ham fisted, printing method. But printing in the traditional japanese method using heavier ink and the back of a wooden spoon did alright. These would frame at around 4×6″.
Like most of the art world, picasso left a huge mark on me. This is a line drawing aping his style late 30s/early 40s. I was going to paint it, but I figured getting the lines down would be hard enough without trying to get that color pallette right. Pen and ink on illustration paper.
I borrowed one of rhiannon’s christmas gifts for today’s buddha. Feliz navidad!
One crushed candy cane, sculpted. I was going to scatter it and arrange it into a buddha, but with the humidity it immediately stuck together. Oi vey.
