Artist's Statement

Took a break from the endless work on my solo show (opens June 7th in Brooklyn NYC! You should come if you're in the area!) to do a personal piece. I was inspired by two songs, both called "Islands," by The xx www.youtube.com/watch?v=PElhV8… and Young the Giant www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca7z8y… - equally great!

Painted in Adobe Photoshop, about 10-12 hours on a Wacom Cintiq. No ref for the face, but pose and movement of the hair were inspired by this excellent stock photo aimeestock.deviantart.com/art/… by AimeeStock.
