Idle Angels

I have finished the final designs on what happens to be the half way point of my “365” post challenge. I’m looking forward to giving my creativity a rest and getting into the flow of making these silly little things.

Idle Angels: forgotten inspiration

Last night I was organizing some visual research for Pinterest (I still don’t quite understand the utility of Pinterest but I’m using it anyway) and buried in some forgotten folder in plain site I happened upon this image that I downloaded back in 2009 when I first drew “The Voyeur.”

I am startled to see how many lessons I have learned from this panel of stained glass from the Musée de Cluny. But I can also see I have a lot to yet learn.

The Vigilante — second pass

Now lacking only clothes and poetry.

The Insomniac — verse

OUR DAYS WITHOUT NUMBER
AND LIGHT EVER BEAMING
NOW NO NEED FOR SLUMBER
NOR LIKEWISE SWEET DREAMING

The Vigilante — first trace

Still pretty rough and awkward but at least I’m moving forward.

The Insomniac — first trace

Is this seraph too sexy? I don’t know. Perhaps just too Disney.
