Two down, one to go!  Wednesday is the last class of the semester, and I'm still working to get all of that work done.  I did this little spot as the last assignment in my Special Studies Illustration class.  Cliff (the professor) clued me in to how cool spots are.  I tend to think of finished artwork as square, in a frame.  It's so freeing to edit down to what's really necessary.  When I started this idea, I had sidewalk, telephone pole, and a larger cast of characters (ant, mantis, slug.)  It's fun to reduce!

  1. Cool stuff. It must be very satisfying to make the most of whitespace.

    The part about reduction sounds a bit like sculpture: start with a block of marble and carve away the bits that aren't part of the sculpture.
