"All The World's A Cage...

...and we are animals pounding at the glass."

I chose to do this quote from an ETID song for my final in John Jay's figure drawing class this past semester. This piece was done in gouache, acrylic, and coloured pencil on a black gessoed piece of arche's cold-press watercolour paper. Probably one of my favorites to date. I had a lot of fun doing it and enjoyed letting myself experiment.

Check me out at Drawgasmic 2010!

This piece will be on exhibition and for sale during the one day only Drawgasmic bonanza, with about 400+ other artists worldwide including professionals, students, and everyone in between. I am promoting as best as I can... he, he, he. I am quite excited! This is my first art show, ever. I never had the opportunity to be part of an art show in high school (we didn't have any exhibitions, ever) and I didn't make it into the FIT Illustration House thing, so this is really exciting for me.

The piece, entitled "If I Only Had the Paint, the Paper, ...the Courage" is very personal to me, and is about how I have all these ideas floating around in my head, but I doubt myself and beat myself up instead of just putting the paintbrush to the paper. Even with this exhibition, which was open-themed, I had trouble coming up with what to do... so I decided to get my frustration out by painting it.

Blah blah blah please support me and my fellow artists! :)
