A Small Story

Another day, another balloon, out for a stroll. Then, this thick green line on the horizon turns out to be a wall topped with teeth and a small person in a pointy hat. He has a pointy stick in hand, and doesn’t answer my questions: “How are you?”, “Can you hear me?”, and, “What is this wall for?”. The small purple door does not open, no matter the pattern I tap on it, so, if I can’t visit with whoever is on the other side of the wall, the balloon can... off you go.

Wall (9x12 print)

  • • Ink drawing & digital color, printed with archival inks on heavyweight watercolor paper

    • Size ~9 1/2"x 13", with lots of room for trimming for mat and/or frame

    • Inks are water soluable, so keep away from moisture (including rain, sippy cups, and salivating pets)


    I work almost exclusively in my sketchbooks, in pencil or pen or crow's quill, then scan in the drawing and apply color digitally (color involves lots of trial and error). I like to work in watercolor vs. digital watercolor, but it's painstaking and somewhat stressful, so I need to keep working at it...
