Mini-Journal No. 5 - 04

Mini-Journal No. 5 - 04

 There is so much that I like about this piece.  The background, to me, looks like a billboard because of its size relative to the male figure.  Otherwise the perspective is off totally.  I love the asymmetrical-ness of the piece.  The woman’s softness versus the worried look on the man face or perhaps it is embarrassment on his face that draws me in.  I am also quite taken by his lively shirt which was a pattern that I created with Posca paint pens.  Another thing that I really like is the overlapping effect.  Sometimes the stars and the planets align and things just work out in a unexpected successful way.

Wonderful piece, john! I take on your man is that he is saying: “i can’t believe you just said that!”....or it could be “did that!”.
that pretty much sums up how we all feel every day, lately..:-)
