Excess

I have another pretty good (but rather involved) idea for this week’s Illustration Friday topic, and wanted to post something this evening. Mr. Vicars returns, as a young man. It’s how he got his start in life.

Please click the image below to see the full size version. I drew this with the intention of adding bars to the cages (and I may still). It’s late, and I want to post it. Tuesday night is turning into my night to draw.

Vanitas

Vanitas is a type of symbolic still life which was commonly executed by Northern European painters in Flanders and the Netherlands in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This sketch features objects from my studio (minus the onion and lime – those are from the fridge).

The term “vanitas” refers to the arts, learning and time and the impermanence of life. Common vanitas symbols include skulls, rotten fruit, smoke, watches, and hourglasses and musical instruments. In other words, cool stuff to draw.
