:cactus:


...and here she is. If it confuses you, it's inspired by the Pixies' song "Cactus:"

Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

It's an idea I've had kicking around for some time, I finally did it for an upcoming Halloween show (I consider Dia de Los Muertos as part of Halloween :-P )


I seem to be sticking to using just pencils lately. No real reason why. Avoiding learning the drawing tablet, perhaps? Or seeing if I can still draw without digital trickery? I can tell you this much, I'd have preferred scanning in a cactus than drawing every last spine like I did.


She'll be on display and for sale at the Fools Mansion Halloween show, Oct. 2 - 31.
