Another installment of sketched out Monday. I actually had a model for this sketch...sort of. A dude came into Bernice's Bakery with crazy hair. I exaggerated a bit...artistic license don't you know.
Ok...so if you don't know this iconic figure then you are in big trouble.
Nosferatu - of course, the best-est vampire movie ever. That form occurs again and again and again in my assemblage compositions. It was only recently that I realized what an influence that image had on my work. Of course I had seen it as a child...but it still lurks and haunts what I do.
The other sketch I did this week was for a piece I'm working on currently.
Its sort of based on a sideshow fortune teller theme. I'll do a special post on the finished assemblage later.
Now...a new feature
I've decided to periodically have a guest artist sneak in and show a sketch or two to mix things up a bit This Week
Guest Artist: Serena Barton
This is a study she did for a larger piece to promote literacy....I love it. Plus I'm a sucker for those honkin' collars. Very nice indeed.
