I Am Juliet


That's the newest print I did last night. Once I had the idea in my head I just had to finish it. It took about six hours with only black, red and permanent marker but I absolutely love the way she turned out. This was inspired by a rendition of Romeo and Juliet where Juliet is a young woman fighting for between her one true love and her beloved family. Here I am trying very hard to capture the fiery red hair in the wind and half dreamy somber face as she heads straight towards her destiny. I made another version that's about 10 inches by 24 inches and it's hanging over my window in a 10 inch x 36 inch black frame and it's just wonderful.

Make sure to check out the Brooklyn Flea every weekend for great finds! I'll be there on March 15th! =D

Until next time... follow your heart...
