i gave a couple friends of ours a gift for their baby today...it was a drawing that i started before my wedding and just now was able to finish. (i know..i'm terrible at time management.) it's my homage to the japanese woodblock prints...with a bit of a twist. i cut up some of alex's judge dredd comics and then i did some faux gold-leafing on top of that. after i had drawn and painted in watercolor, i had done a bunch of crosshatching on the balloons and i didn't like the result at all. i thought of covering it with newspaper clippings for a cool contrast...but then i thought of using comics instead since i love them and kids are usually drawn to colorful pictures. the pictures i chose aren't necessarily kid-friendly, but who needs dora when you've got a ninja and death?
(i apologize for the blurriness of the picture.)
and here's penelope looking regal.
