These are details of two variations I'm working on from the Cradle piece. Instead of using handwritten text I've used digital typography. It's a new thing for my fine art work, and it's a little bit scary. I feel like I'm violating some sacred separation of graphic design and Real Art®. I think it works really well though. The top piece (second in series) is really feeling good to me, but the third one is still in flux. As I get into these, I'm using my Wacom tablet a lot more painterly.
I'm hoping to get them finished off and sent to the print lab before this weekend... I'm trying my damnedest to get to Pittsburgh for the release party and a much needed vacation.
