Woman in Need of Cheese

Woman in Need of Cheese

"Woman in Need of Cheese"

8.5 X 11, India ink, Prisma Color Pencils on Charcoal Illustration Bond Paper

Just being silly, learning to work on this dark paper, usually I start out with an idea of illustrating a certain aspect of anatomy, just practice you know, and this one I was trying to work out how the upper arm muscles flatten and rap around the rib cage when supporting the upper torso, the mouse crawled into the drawing and gave it a theme and a title: "Women in Need of Cheese."
