Art That Didn't Make This Website
Updated: Mar 19
A co-worker, and fellow artist, was nice enough to check out this brand new website (Thank you, Bailey!). She told me that she had no idea I had created so much. That made me laugh and I told her, “What you saw were just the ones I liked enough to post, but I chose from well over 1,000 creations and only put my favorites.”
So, I thought I’d occasionally add a few things from my art life that didn’t make the main page.
I did a small series of a few faces with similar color schemes, but this was by far my favorite. Why are his earrings attached to pretty pink balloons you may wonder. Yeah, I wonder that too. If I ever find out, I'll let you know. But, in a world where people do some pretty weird things with their piercings, I'm surprised this isn't something I have actually seen before.
I am old enough to remember when Bart Simpson was first released into the world. I was an instant fan so it's no surprise that he made it into my weird world of art.
I was pretty new to Procreate when this was drawn and I was basically using it to experiment. But, I ended up actually thinking it was pretty cool to look at.
I believe I digitally painted this one while I was at my work desk. I was looking through my window at the beautiful rain and was wishing I were outside playing in it.
There's something so special about a rainstorm. It is more than just something that makes me happy... it's deeper than that. It's like an ancestral pull takes place inside of my soul.
"I'm only happy when it rains."
Thanks for looking. I'll add more "Art That Didn't Make This Website" again soon.
