From a series of small works on paper. I started out doing some drawings on paper with water soluble pencil and ended up moving to a small syringe tip squeeze bottle with thinned black paint. From there it was basically an exercise of drawing, blocking out certain areas, drawing some more, etc. At first I was just working with black and white, but soon started bringing in color. One of the cool things I started doing was using a vegetable scrubbing brush to break up the black lines, while adding some texture and keeping them from looking too literal. Basically, I would draw with the black paint, and while it was still wet, I would give it a slight mist with the spray bottle and then go back over the area with the vegetable brush, which is sort of an equivalent to a plastic wire brush, following the lines that were just laid down. Long winded description, but an interesting effect.
