so is this going to be like the 100 octopus 100 girls except with a different theme?
In regards to Brandon: In other words, not like 100 girls 100 octopi.
I liked it before. That's not to say that I don't like it now, but I thought the stark white background made it more dramatic. At least in contrast to the others from the set.
How big are these? 8.5x11?
Have you ever tried sharpie poster paint pens? You can still get some very thin lines, but you don't need the same level of commitment as microns, etc.
">In regards to Brandon: In other words, not like >100 girls 100 octopi."
Brandon is right in that this piece will, like that one, feature several small pieces put together into one larger, extending architectural space.

yes, there's always the danger of spoiling the starkness of an image.

Why on earth would I want to lower my level of commitment?
its like Esher, jamie hewlett and Giger combined :D i realy like your work.
I dunno, I feel like not being married to the mark you make on the page is one way to not hinder your imagination. A stray line and your plans for that piece of blank page are gone. Your control with microns is amazing and you don't seem to be living in fear of fucking up a line or two, but what about the images from Blood Meridian where you've got a clear picture in your head and you want that on paper? You've done a great job of making all the space in your drawings look good, so it looks like you're past the point of giving a shit over a pen stroke that's 3 mm off, I guess I'm just curious to see what your work would look like if you could draw over it at any given moment. What happens when you decide that this drawing would be cooler if that dildo were shaped like the millenium falcon? With microns you're boned.
I guess that you throw yourself at those unchangeable marks is what makes you as prolific and impressive as you are.
Anyway, about the paintpens, I just see it as a way to marry the fineline work you do with the more painterly acrylic pieces. I'm curious.
I agree. Happy accidents are sometimes what makes the drawing more alive and unpredictable.
Did she kill that creature? Do you ever draw violent scenes like her shooting the creature?
Here's my second favorite one from your whole sketchbook.
