Red Abyss – miniature illustration

013 - Red Abyss

Actual Size in Reality – 2.5 by 3.5 inches. It is a miniature.

Materials – Red and Black Micron Pen with Windsor & Newton Watercolor on Crescent Hot Press All Media Board

Artist Statement – This is number 013 of 999 ACEO’s that I have begun illustrating. I love drawing, then painting these little cards. An ACEO stands for Artist Cards, Editions or Originals. They must measure 2.5 by 3.5 inches. An ACEO is a standard trading card size not unlike a Baseball, Hockey or Magic Card. In time I’ll produce limited edition prints. For now only the Originals are available.

Red Abyss is lucky number 013.

Rolling Closer with Artist Materials Used

Rolling with materials used

Title – Rolling Closer
Materials – Windsor & Newton Watercolour and Sakura 005 Micron Pen on Moleskine Watercolour paper

Artist’s Statement – This is the first time I’ve used Watercolour in four years. Watercolour was laid down first followed
by pen. Notice the little blue birdies upper left center facing right.

The Story – One night while out clubbing in Vancouver my purse was rifled through. This person(s) stole my Watercolour Set which is identical to the one pictured above and nothing else. I hope they desperately needed art materials more than my poor soul at that time. For the next four years I RARELY touched watercolour content creating with acrylic and pen.

The set above is a gift from Mom. The thing is this set went missing about two weeks ago. To make matters worse I thought I lost it at a club four years later here in Saint John.

Rolling Close - with two birdies

During.that.couple.of.days.it.was.missing I googled the set’s name and found a great pic from a Blogger named Ethan of his set.

In desperation I stole his photo and emailed it to the club. So, thank you Ethan in proper Blog post form.

Go and check out the art this Ethan Draws in the identical Moleskine Watercolour journal using the same Windsor & Newton Travel watercolour travel set.

The conclusion – Turns out it was at a friends house and not at the club at all.

Draw so you will not use drugs when the condom breaks – drawing

Condom Child

The doctor walked in and looked down at the pad of paper.

“Did you draw that?” she asked.

“Yes, I draw so I don’t use. Keeps me sane.” I smiled and stepped up to sit down on the examining room table two days ago.

Periodically, I can only draw
what I think and feel.
Words do no justice,
to emotions
with no name.
