Cardboard Please dont bend...

I joined a show this year that will exhibit more than 100 artists works on cardboard. Two good friends also joined, Carla Wyzgala and Caleb King. Saw their pieces and they are fantastic. The show is open two days only on Friday November 25th and Sat. November 26th from 6pm to 11pm. Definitely go and see this show. It will be great AND the pieces will be super affordable! Address is 600 W. Cermak, Chicago, corner of Jefferson and Cermak.

For this piece, I wanted to draw the female body decorated heavily with intricate designs. Ive been drawing these patterns for quite some time now and always though about incorporating them with figures. Took me about 3 hours to do this piece. I used micro pens, sharpies, and a little bit of pastels to add brightness.
Title is " My First Love".
So far I like this direction, expect more to come! Enjoy!
