Procrastination Will Kill You

But it's fun while it lasts. Anyway, the next piece of my concentration was suppose to include insects. Yes, I know a spider is technically an arachnid, but .....nevermind. The whole concept of the this is like 'attack on the battlefield" or "descent of the prey". Either it all goes to my thought the games are just like life, and yes horrible things happen, but my question is what makes it happen, and who is really in control of it all. That question is up to the "hand above".

The End

No, no note that type of end. Let me explain. I have reached the end of another sketchbook. Everytime I get a new one, I collage the cover with a different theme, surrounding one of my favorite cartoon or comic. I title them my 'Sketch Diaries'. I am not sure whether or not show my first-year sketchbook, but my second-year was fantasy based and centered around the

W. I.T.C.H book series, which in turn was adapted by the Italian/French comic series under the same name, created by Elisabetta Gnone . My third and most recent cover was centered around the Gothic American manga Bizenghast by M. Alice Legrow ( one of my inspirations) and fashioned after the neoclassical era. I do enjoy collaging my covers; it's the only pleasure in finishing a book, starting anew.

I Feel Like Dancin'!, not really., but the inspirations for this next work certainly. This is the product of six weeks of figure studies drawn from actual dancers. Take those drawings, zoom in on one figure,
reconstruct, and a few mixed media
with warmer colors (teacher's suggestion) and you got...yeah...GREEN!
