I looked through all of the themes today, and was surprised to find that this was the first painting I have done with a beaver in it! Hopefully it will not be my last, because I think beavers are just about the funniest animals around.
I am a day behind in posting (on my self-imposed schedule) because I have been working on some other illustration work, which I hope to be able to post on here soon.
I'm not sure my painting for this week's theme totally makes sense...
Technically, a möbius strip only has one side, but I thought there was a cool interplay here between the car and the bike, and how they are kind of on two different roads, but they are also sharing the road.... I guess what I really want to say is: if you ride a bike, you should wear a helmet!
I grew up in the pacific northwest and saw many beautiful green forests that were turned into desolate, clear-cut wastelands. It's important to think about where your paper comes from! This is why I am a total psycho when it comes to reusing every square inch of both sides of every sheet of paper that crosses my path before I recycle it. Also, try to buy products that utilize recycled paper! Especially toilet paper. Okay, that's my little PSA for this week.
