Death is Just a New Beginning
I still don't know how I feel about this piece but others seems to love it! This one was a love/hate relationship from the beginning. I drew up a paper and pencil sketch of it at about 24” across (larger than my usual sketches) and worked on it for what seemed like ages (a month or so)! The face itself went through at least a dozen iterations. Then, I finally decided I liked it enough to put onto scratchboard. After it finished in black and white, I couldn’t decide what to do with it and it sat, unfinished, on my desk for another 2 months. Finally, I added some color to it. It’s quite a different theme from my usual happy and mystical pieces but I’ve finally grown to appreciate it, some 6 months after its conception.
