Hitchin’ a Ride

Bicycle-Blues

Here’s #4 in the series.  Same familiar characters, but I changed my background techniques completely.  Gone are the gelli plate backgrounds and tissue paper collage.  This one is all acrylic paint with pearlized ink on top, stencils with spray ink for texture, and some water soluble pastels to darken the edges.  Oh, and fabric pieces for the umbrella and embroidery floss for the hair.

Karlie said this girl’s eyes aren’t as creepy as the others and that she’s “becoming more human.”  Maybe someday when I’m a long-dead famous artist (ha ha), people will analyze this and wonder what I meant by her transformation.  I’ll say it here for posterity… it was an accident!
