Something Completely Different
The only benefit of ever having a migraine is that artistically, it eradicates all indecision. I had a small commission for a 40th anniversary in November and I was a little stumped by the commission. All that was requested were the numerals 40 and a few flourishes on an 8x10 light yellow ground. The size and the content were a bit awkward sounding and I was not being hit by an idea. However, I was hit with a migraine and just sat down to the paper and this little autumn flourish emerged. Fabercastell polychromos, Finetec golds, sakura stardust and hot foil on clairefontaine maya.
