IF: Open

I originally thought I would show an old picture that I titled "A Look Inside: An Open Mind." But I wanted to be open about myself with the art. An Open Book makes sense to me, and is somewhat cliche, but I thought I would do it in a new way. It has large hands and feet because those are my favorite things to draw. You probably can't read the text but it says everything and nothing about myself.

Lovely blog - you have a really sensitive drawing style. Great stuff!

There is something very evocative about your drawing. I love the open book with the arms and legs. You're right, I couldn't read it but I bet it is interesting!

Both pieces are wonderful. I love the detail in the open mouth.

Love the open book, and no I can't read it except for the tantalising headings..My dreams are ...unreadable, now that's just teasing:)

Great stuff Josh, excellent shading on the open mouth piece.

I can understand why you like drawing hands and feet, you did a very good job, you can almost feel the strengh of them.
Thanx for visiting my blog!

Very good illustrations and great idea!

Amy said...

Wow, it's a very symbolic piece--rather than just an open book, your addition of the hands and legs turns it into a sort of mythical creature!

p/s: thanks for commenting on my piece! :)

Both your "opens" make me want to engage them in conversion, would be very interesting I'm sure. Both, very curious and fascinating pieces!
