I know I've been pretty quiet for the last little while. It turns out that I had a badly infected cavity in a place I've had so much dental work done it didn't even hurt. So I had no idea why I was so constantly run down. "Must be allergies" I thought. That's my go to. Funny how often it's wrong.
Anyway, had a root canal on Wednesday and I'm on antibiotics so I'm feeling quite a lot better.
Here's a little something I whipped up last night. I've worked with this image on and off again for quite a while now. I like it, but I've never been quite able to get it to work to my satisfaction. This version started as a lino-cut proof I had filled in with colored pencil to get an idea of what colors I wanted. I came across it while straightening things up the other day and decided I should try to scan it and do something with it. So here you go.
I really didn't do that much to the original image. I cropped it a bit and blurred the background to give it some depth. I like the paper cutout look it ended up with.
