Revenge Idea Exploration Sketchbook

Sketchbook Complete_Page_01

This sketchbook was a huge challenge to me both in terms of how short a time I had to finish it, and the subject. I was hoping, as I've said, to be assigned a lighter topic, but revenge it was. Drawing -when you have practiced it a long time at least- allows you to discover things about your point of view that the left side of your brain won't admit to. That was definitely the case here, because if I talk about revenge and pain I have some nice pat answers. After all, I've read the books, know the points, etc. How I should act and react in this crazy world is more amorphous in practice.

I am distinctly nervous to publish this. I am almost certain it will offend just about everyone I know for wildly conflicting reasons. It is one thing to put your work in a show and another to display it to friends and family. I am disciplining myself to do it, however, because I promised and because the point of this blog is to journal my creative work.

There is a reason for almost every single line, and definitely for every visual choice I made but I would rather let it unfold for you without my voice. So without further ado: Revenge.
