Vacation? Hope your having holiday fun.

I like this piece. Did you paint over the figure? Or, was the form inspired by the lighter background pattern?

Thanks! I'm having people over for the next two weeks or so, and having festive times. Should be fun. I still should be able to post drawings and things.

I actually drew the figure in pen on some vellum, and my cat was swishing her tail across the ink so it was smearing at the same time. I layered the pattern in the background via photoshop, and washed out the pattern area where her body is with low opacity. I didn't plan to do it this way, but when I scanned the ink, it kind of felt right to add a light background. I like the texture of a little crumpled part of the paper to make it a seemless image.
