Silhouette and Shadows

I had this crazy idea one day and went on a frenzy drawing up silhouettes and worked on them in Photoshop. These take so much more longer then my usual art but I really love how they retain the whimsy and playfulness of my Chibi Girl series but also allows me to create art that expands to other styles. Of course as always I doubted my work but after asking people, people really loved it and within two days of posting the above "FireFly Girl" Print it sold. SO I'm so happy. I still have a lot of unfinished drawings to do.

On another note BIM event went great! I made back my table fee and then some. Though it was raining on and off so that may have deterred people from shopping. I had a lot of complements about my work and I found out that people would pay extra for matted and framed prints. I'm definitely going to do that more often.
This one above is my newest work called "Little Composer." I got this idea from one of my favorite composers Joe Hisaishi. Actually for the few classical performances I've seen live and on the computer I love how the conductor just really let's it rip... bopping their heads, their batons their whole body shows how in tune they are to the music. I've been so slow with the updates because I've been microblogging on twitter. You can follow me here...

Until next time... don't stop dancing to your own beat. =)
