Inspired by Asland from “The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis, this pen and ink drawing shows the complexity of winter before the beauty of spring. A self portrait done using Crayola twistable colored pencils, experimenting with how soft you can blend them. A Crayola Twistable drawing which is the inspiration for Spotted Pepper Designs. Inspired by my time spent along the pan handle of Florida. I will never forget the beautiful colors of the Gulf Coast! Meeko was the beloved pet raccoon of a dear friend of mine. He has to return back to live in the wild, but he will always stay wild in our hearts. Why blend in when you were born to stand out? This zen octopus was an experiment with mixed media. I love the irony of a zen mendela on an octopus.
