Blame

 

Blame     
size:  255 x 305 mm •  8 x 12 in     
medium: cut + torn paper / illustration board

 

It seems to me that whenever a person finds themselves in a tight spot, the blame starts flying. The trouble with blame is that it has a tendency to boomerang right back atcha. Soon, fingers are pointing every which way; nobody gets out unscarred. This piece was alot of fun to do. I got to experiment with creating my own textures by layering papers in the skin and by playing around with a kind of resist technique (scratching down through layers in the hair and the snake). The background paper was so gorgeous I almost felt guilty gluing things on top of it.

Luckily, this fits snugly into the Illustration Friday theme of "Trouble".
