This piece is the oldest image on the website. It was done when I was 22 years old and had not yet learned to paint. At the time I had done a series of Day of the Dead themed drawing similiar to this with heavy inspiration drawn from the engravings of the mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. This is my favorite from this era. The limitations of using only pens to create the illusion of space is a fun task to undertake. Its easy to go too far and have an unfixable mess. but when it works out it can be very rewarding. I suppose sometimes less is more.
