An oldie but goodie. This was one of the first pieces I did in a style that I felt was mine. I had to go through all my illustrations and decide which are going into my final illustration portfolio and this one made the cut. I have what looks to be 30 pieces that are good enough to make the first cut. I plan to cut it down to 15 or 20, but really 20 is the limit. Its an odd thing to look through two years of work and have to make such big decisions. I am glad I have been prolific though b/c out of over 200 illustrations there are only 30 good enough to even be considered. I cannot wait until this is over and I can stop dissecting my work every day. I have not painted in 3 months and it makes me sad.
