New "DESTROY" Piece in "Little Clouds"
While warming up for a glut of painting that I did from Sunday through Tuesday, I rocked out on this new two-page spread in "Little Clouds," my book of experimental drawing and painting techniques. I love doing this stuff. Between the toned paper and the random text & drawings on each page of the book, every stroke of working in between these covers becomes an adventure. And the paper's thick enough to handle any material... paint, markers, pencil & ink... whatever I break out, the book just looks at me like, "Bring The Thunder, bitch!"
Any artists out there -- I highly recommend getting a sketchbook like this, that challenges you to do something beyond your regular pencil & ink sketching. It's great exercise, and you'll find yourself wandering into some fresh territory that you can further explore in finalized works.
