Did you know there is a red flower in your hair?
I decided to drop back and paint a Suzi girl with the dreamier half-closed eyes. It's really interesting what I do in this little Walgreens sketch book. The pages will accept just about any medium and it has a bit of tooth that I like. It was one of those things where I started drawing while I was watching Americal Idol last night(which by the way, I am getting a little bored of) and end up with something that I actually like---and it's in the cheapest journal. But it's ok because this journal has a cute collaged cover so it's really not that crummy. I used the copic air sprayer for the background and the lettering is digi-magic (that's me messing around in Photoshop with my letterforms). She was colored with colored pencils then a light coat of acrylic over the face to smooth it out. I am still experimenting with hair---arggg....hair!
