Sub Rosa



A thing I did for a gallery show in Germany held by Rotopol Press. I figured I'd post it here as well as on my blog, since I know a few of you doodlershits are in it, too.

the rose, a nice touch. What mysterious happenings...

whats the narrative? Maybe at a subtle suggestion of footprints?

This is cool as hell Sam!

I agree about the footprints though. It would add a nice little detail, breaking up all of the verticals.

Not that it matters, but is this digital or gouache? I only ask because there is some nice splatter and subtle color-in-color going on that, to me, seem like they would be hard to produce digitally.

My dream is to have that gentleman's stache. It is a beautiful thing...

Haha...jeez. The footprints. They're in my sketch, they're in my digital comp...and I just fucking forgot them in the final. I went nuts when I remembered, but I've already sent the image to the gallery! So it goes, I guess.

I suppose the dudes might have brushed them away for secrecy's sake.

It's digital under a pencil drawing, and 90% of the digital process was creating subtleties in the open spaces of color. I wish I was confident and competent enough with my traditional painting skills to do it all by hand, but I am most certainly not. Thanks for the comments, guys.
