A is for...

A is for..., 90lb. mixed media paper, November 15, 2011
This is my first page, and it's obvious that I began this project with no rules. The drawings are very loose, but I kind of like that. I tend to tighten up the longer I work on a project. I have to constantly remind myself to loosen up. I especially like the aspen grove and the cropped armadillo. The extreme cropping is intentional. I don't want to get bogged down trying to render complex objects, so I only draw the simple part (the armadillo's south end). I colored the initial a color beginning with the page's featured letter. A is for amber, aspen, armchair, armadillo, amaryllis, Apple Computer, and armor. 25 more pages to go!
