The topic was so inspiring that I drew six pages of doodles in my sketchbook. I came up with a wide variety of interpretations: fat lip, fat tears, fat cat... I could have easily relied upon my favorite pig character, but that would be a cop-out. It would be too easy for me to rely on him. I decided it had to be something new.
What inspired me the most was the swimsuit season that is currently upon us. The picture I came up with struck me as the funniest and the strongest.
I am having a lot of fun with the texture and paint techniques I'm playing with. I hope that with this experimentation, my personal style will strengthen. (I wish the picture didn't look so orange. She's supposed to look severely sunburned.)
Poor Miriam, apparently she didn't reapply enough sunscreen.
