Miniature Painting

KODAK Digital Still Camera

I took time to make something with my hands and some gouache paint today. It is always a grounding experience to push color around with a tiny paintbrush. This image has been in my head for a while. I tend to wait to start a piece until I have figured out what the most effective medium is to tell the story, and I don’t always know where the story may end up. The way I see it though is that the most important part is just to start.

A Friend Like You:

I want to be a friend like you.

You told me that we met a long time ago

in a space both silent and cold.

There we drifted

side by side

as tiny crystals twirled down upon your ground.

With eyes of approval and a chuckle

you said to me,

“My child let’s be friends, crawl inside my warmth.”

Queen Nimi

This is Queen Nimi, a character I designed for the world that I’ve been developing. I made it using Adobe Illustrator from start to finish. I like how Vector shapes can create a similar effect to Gouache (my preferred paints) clean and bold.
