broken


I'm actually on top of Illustration Friday after missing it last week. I really needed to pull out the drawing tools and give this a go today.

This is wonderful. I love the patterns, the mark-making and the muted palette. Is it a print...perhaps a monotype? Whatever it is, it's very nicely done.

Is this another crayon on paper? Again beautiful; like the details of the broken tree when not so broken :)

This is so beautiful! I like the play of gray color scheme, but I'm also little confused...is it a print?

This is a drawing using a variety of white and metallic mediums (coloured pencil, gel pens, Sharpie and even white-out) on archival-quality black paper. It's almost like "directed doodling" -- fun to do.

Another good one, Andrea! I really like the three blocks on the left. It looks really, really nice in the large size...your pen lines have a lot of texture and variation that you can's see on the small picture. Brava :>

I like this a lot, the framing and various elements fit together superbly.

The fact that I scanned it just slightly tilted because I was in a hurry to post it is making me just about crazy every time I see it now. Haste makes waste...

This entire series is so expressive, dark & moody with an underlying passion that makes my mind stop for a moment or two while attempting to suss things out. Anyway, WOW!

I love how rich this is. It seems more colourful than its muted palette.

This is beautiful. Love the textures and the lines and the separation of the bigger design from the smaller ones. Great idea.

This is quite lovely. It has an icy winter feel to it. I love your style. Cheers!
