An American Fairytale
Finally including more process shots for you guys! This was a piece I did for a silent auction for the Asian Law Caucus 2013 banquet. I wanted a piece that was fun and weird and playful, undertones of current issues in America - immigration and gay marriage. I’m not a very political person so the imagery is simple and perhaps shallow. But as with most work, it’s all open to interpretation, and I wanted whoever ended up purchasing it to make their own story up about the piece. Hopefully the process shots give you more of an idea on how I sometimes work - lots of washes and layering watercolor on watercolor to achieve what I want. This piece is very flattened, not a lot of depth, everything’s kind of competing. If you’ve been following me for awhile you probably recognize the flower head men from my Alice in Wonderland piece.
