watercolors on khadi paper, 6" x 6"
i've been doing a lot of what i think of as comfort painting. i can feel something brewing inside (art-wise), and when that's happening i feel more or less stalled out creatively... so i just draw willy nilly stuff and paint - like a cat staring at the wall! he's probably watching a spider, ha ha.

i saw an insect like this is katherine dunn's 'creative illustration workshop' a few weeks ago and i've drawn a bunch of them since! comfort for sure!

i think the woman on the left may be wondering why her hat is sitting so low on her head, or what that colored pencil's doing over there beside her - or maybe what the creatures on the other page have in mind! (not to mention that cup hanging over her head) i painted her face with a heavy layer of white gouache first to see how i liked it. i didn't... it was too much white. so yeah, i'll just blame her whole wonkyness on that. ; )
it's smoky here from forest fires that are far away. and hot!
