Max and the Siamese Twins

Alex over at Glubdub has been working on this book for quite a while, all full color pics from a variety of accomplished artists and a story inspired by Siamese twins.

If you have been following my blog you know I am a little obsessed with duos, twins. In this book, my “Orangesicle sisters”~~

Envy

Friday, August 14th, 2009

I had written previously on the topic of envy and jealousy. I thought about it last night when ironically the movie Seven aired on t.v., as envy is one of the “seven deadly sins”.

I started doodling and wondering how I might express that idea in a drawing. Since I am slightly obsessed with duos, a theme that comes back to me over and over, I quickly began to imagine how envy might rear its head up between twins and more than that, conjoined twins who are stuck together for life (in some cases).

I wrote a little story to go with the drawing then thought, the drawing would work better alone, generating some thinking from the viewer.

the Twins came to a Fork in the Road

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

This painting took quite a bit of time, its four feet by three feet which is bigger than what I generally do lately. Its actually needs a bit more work but I havn’t posted anything in so long I felt a work in progress would be just fine right about now. its interesting how when working larger scale, details are less enticing, as one wants to contend with sheer space. I started with a simple sketch and it changed almost completely. With the next painting I think I will do a size appropriate, thourough drawing and see how things work out, if it is more efficient or if my artist’s brain will go off on tangents.
