Tata Gala ad

This ad is made for print not the web so the text is a bit hard to read in your screen I'm sure.
This was a really challenging piece and it's a piece that I believe captures the new direction my fine art work is gravitating to, blending soft traditional reading with stark colored geometric shapes that move the eye around the figure. I'm really digging the whole idea, now I just have to perfect the craft. Expect a lot more of this in the future!!
It's its 22"x30"...I think
Done on Rives bfk paper, white.
Watercolor, prismacolor pencil, acrylic, water based oils
Then a layer of gel matte medium.
I'm not crazy about the way this scanned in, the original in person looks much better.
Come to the Tata Gala and you'll see, ha
If you haven't read the last post I made (the call for entries) let me recap..
TATA GALA!!!! visit the site and follow the call for entries guidelines.
And all for a good cause. Pass the word around and get to work on your Tata piece!!!

Excellent work! I saw this in Juxtapos magazine, and I was compelled to look for this piece online, I absolutely love how everything is composed, the colors, the eyes especially, the styling is quite impressive and unique!

I appreciate your efforts!

This is amazing. I've really wanted to start working on stuff like this, but I'm not ready yet. I still need to re-learn the basics of drawing and stuff. But overall, I love the colors and the font! It's beautiful!
