asleep


My initial rendering of this pillow was soft and ethereal. It looked like a morning vision, with bright sunlight delineating the edges of the pillowcase. I was pleased with the drawing and put it down. When I took another look, I decided it was all wrong. It was not an illustration for “asleep”, this was “awaken”. I started to add some darkness to the image, getting rather aggressive with my strokes. The drawing seems more appropriate to the topic now but I’m not sure it’s a peaceful slumber.

  1. Love how the fine lines describe the pillow.

  2. Great, as always. What else can I say? I am not sleeping much these days, and this pillow looks so inviting….

  3. I love that you understand that the background is just as important as the pillow!

  4. I like this one a lot. I am not sure I would have been able to accomplish this. (must be why I do collage hehe) but I really think this drawing is perfect for the theme. I am browsing your drawings and I am amazed with your talent. Nice work!!
