 "Wayfarer" / 14 x 17" / watercolor, acrylic & ink on paper

Perhaps it's the Holidays, but I've been thinking about traveling a lot, lately. Past trips, future journeys... hell, even other people's travels have been especially interesting to me. And I think that's where the inspiration for this piece came from.

As I began sketching out this weary wanderer, though, I started wondering what sort of effect they might have had on the people they met along the way... what spell they may have cast on the very landscape they traversed. And that's where the creepy elements slithered their way into the illustration.

"Ventilate" / 8 x 8" / watercolor, acrylic & collage on canvas

I haven't had much time to dedicate to painting, recently. So diving into this piece was extremely cathartic. Cintiqs are super-cool, yes. But I don't think anything will ever be a better match for me, than my beloved, tactile, wet mediums!

These Alphabet Attack pieces have been coming few and far between. But now that I'm down to 4 letters to go, I'm eager to wrap up the series in the next week or two. And, oh boy... just wait until you see what I have planned, after that!
