i don’t usually use the white ink
in my set of inks
i can’t quite wrap my head around
how ink can be white.
i can accept yellow ink…but white?
as you can see in the ink stain
what will become the girl’s face
is too dark for ink to show up on
so i needed to lighten it a bit
to add features
i forgot the wings on the dragon
this is a reoccurring mistake for me
which is weird
because i add wings to every other creature
so why can’t i remember that dragons
are actually supposed to have wings?
i blame dusty
he is year of the dragon
and only thinks all dragons
have to have wings
chinese dragons don’t have wings,
i tell him.
but he won’t accept wing-less dragons
so maybe i am subconsciously trying to spite him….
so i had to use white to create a wing
for my poor
i had something really cool in my head,
but i wasn’t sure how to make it happen.
so the wings are what they are.
but at least they are there
i really like hand puppets.
i’m also very tired.
i played in the snow for two hours
and scanned all of my october & november inkings
i’m a tired,
but my plant beds are all covered, the sheep have more pasture,
and i am in a better position to print up art work!
so let me know if you want some art.
