Go Green, a continuation...


More rants from me. Keep less carbon from the atmosphere and reuse and recycle, don't waste. You've heard me say it before, many times.
I've been "adjusting" my illustration style, over the past few months, to integrate more textures. Textures that I discovered doing relief printmaking.
It's weird that I haven't gone completely linear from my experiences with relief prints, but the painter in me wants more form.
I do love the line, and my life drawings are nearly all ink line, perhaps that is what frees me to just focus on textures and forms in my illustration work.
Well, whatever the case, I am enjoying the process completely. If only I can conquer my chocolate addiction.

I love the new technique, and you balanced the colors beautifully. And of course, I admire the symbolism. Also wanted to tell you that I switched my domain name to something that's easier for people to remember: http://chadwallaceart.blogspot.com/ Sorry to make you have to update my link.

Heidi,
Love the textures!
Printing did the same for me when I started- many moons ago, now. It is remarkable how letting go brings back even more...
Cookie looks beautiful and happy!

Thanks Memi! Cookie is pretty happy since the summer her happiness returned. Now she actually plays with her millions of toys.

Must be hard going down such a steep hill with that on. :)
