Technique-wise, how do you apply the crayon?  On top of the watercolor?  Or do you use the crayon first so that the waterproof wax resists the paint in strategic locations?  Both?

I apply the watercolor first and then apply the crayon over top of it. I've tried it the reverse way, and the crayon resists the watercolor too much and you don't get even saturation.

I made this stationery to write a letter to one of my pen pals. I really like the way it turned out, and I hope she does too!

I made this for a facebook friend who also loves Vonnegut as much as I do! It's watercolor, crayon and sharpie.



This is the original drawing I did in a friend's notebook that had a page with a Vonnegut quote on it that my facebook friend really liked and requested her own!



I also made her one with pages from a damaged Cat's Cradle book. This is her photo of the both of them!

Aw thanks!!! That means a lot to hear! I drew a rad Vonnegut recently, too!

Your lady seems to be in much more trouble, which I like.  Cheesy What do you plan on doing with it? I thought it was a bookmark at first because of the shape. It's very cool. 

I plan on getting a frame for it an hanging it on the wall with my other Haunted Mansion pieces. I also have some friends that are requesting prints, so I'm going to do that, too! Cheesy

So, I'm a big fan of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. I thought I would challenge myself to recreate my favorite painting in the stretching room.



These are the two photos I was looking at. I liked both the original Marc Davis design (right) and the design that is currently featured in the the Mansion (at Disneyland AND Magic Kingdom).



and here are a couple progress shots. It was very tricky to get the small details done on a 4X10 and with a fine-line (but not so-fine-line) sharpie.




Sadly, I have to re-make the original. I added crayon to it, like I do with most of my works, and the added saturation did NOTHING for the piece. It's okay, I don't mind light-boxing my own work to make corrections. :3
