I'm unloading my love like a bloated camel

i opted to forgo the fluer d' rag pattern to emphasize the clunky arrangements of the camels. i think the end result is much more dramatic and interesting.

camel fight

this is the new one that i am working on now. as i said earlier, it is moving away from the figure towards the larger shapes with block lettering. i'm liking how it is going and starting to imagine how pieces might look on a larger scale or with several hung as a multiple. the thing i wonder about there is presentation, frames get in the way of continuous panels. any way, the pattern in the background is called fluer de rag.

get a hold of yourself!

obviously this piece evolved a bit while i worked on it. I'm pretty happy with the way it has turned out though. I'm leaning towards using More ambiguous shapes with the block letter against patterns for a while. we'll see how that goes.
