Tentative Voodoo – Artwork in Progress

January 22, 2010

I’ve been working on this piece for a while now (tentatively titled Voodoo. It’s watercolor on paper). I’ve taken a zillion reference photos and made a bunch of different versions. It’s been hanging on my wall for weeks and I’ve just been waiting for a feeling about where to go from here.

The original theme was based on the concept of charisma —  how some people almost exude a captivating magnetic force. Wow factor, confidence, social acumen, whatever you want to call it – bottom line is that not everyone has it, but most have probably met someone who does. 

Anyway, this project had totally stalled out, but I was tooling around in Adobe Illustrator last night with a Wacom tablet and below is the result. This isn’t finished either, but I’m already leaps & bounds more satisfied with where it’s going.

    Hi Michelle….

    I was posting a piece for my boss today…and it was a story he told of his studying voodoo many years ago. I was Googling for images and found this great pic of your watercolor titled Voodoo.

    Would it be possible for me to use this in his blog post???

    Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!
