illustration friday: identical

I still get the Illustration Friday notifications but haven't participated in probably a year. Today, though, I actually had an unpublished drawing lurking around here that matched the topic. This is an experimental mixed media (coloured pencil, acrylic paint, technical pen) drawing on grey-green Canson Mi-Teintes paper.

Hmm...it looks rather like a "design-a-new-flag -for- a newly-independent-state"

Would you use the Canson again? I love it for paper work, but its tooth bothers me Probably cos I'm not a pastellist!

I don't think I'll use the Canson again for the same reason. I love soft, smooth paper like Stonehenge.

i look at this and i think: the roots push, the leaves fall, the birds fly.

push, fall, fly. yup, that about sums up life :^)

i write this from ptown, andrea, and my andrea original is no more than ten feet from me.

Indigene: I got tripped up by it when I posted a thumbnail and then couldn't change it!
