Illustration Friday: Unfold

And when she finally let go, the magic of her true life began to unfold....

I'm just posting a sketch so far as I'm not yet sure how I want to color this. I'm thinking I want to tackle it in traditional medium, gouache most likely. I have some experimenting to do, and I'd like to play with being looser with some textured elements, and let myself have some fun with it. I'll see what I can come up with this weekend, but it looks like it will have to wait until sunday as it sounds like I'll be working saturday. (I'll work on giving her some toes too. :P I ran out of paper. I'll also need to give the drawing more breathing room especially on the left side.)

Thanks everyone!!

I've been busy, so I still have to figure out how I'm going to color this, but I know it will be fun figuring it out. You've inspired me to offer up a print of the sketch as well!

Hi, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

If you could add me as a link or give the project a mention I would be really grateful.
