Happy St. Patrick's Day! I had wanted to drawing something appropriate to commemorate the day, but I just couldn't find the time. Weekends are generally busy times for me.
Instead, I'll show you the interesting challenge that Amber presented me. She wrote, "I have been visiting your blog, and I love your work."
(Nice of you to say Amber - thank you very much.)
"I have a Charles Bukowski quote that I would love to create into a drawing. Here it is:'But as God said, crossing his legs. I see where I have made plenty of poets but not so very much poetry.'"
Amber had a definite idea in mind for what she wanted in the illustration. She said, "I kind of envisioned for God; long flowing hair, robe, beard, etc. I was thinking of Him in a rocking chair in some clouds and then some breaking clouds where He can look down. Then maybe the lower half could be a city scape with people walking and a couple benches with people sitting down and writing."
So, Amber had the concept. All I had to do was put it on paper. I went to the web for some ideas for drawing a city scape, and I drew some inspiration from the works of Robert Crumb.
I spent a great deal of time on this drawing. I wanted to get it just right. I feel very good about how the drawing turned out - quite proud as a matter of fact. Amber said it"looks awesome!" I guess that's what really matters.
Thanks Amber for trusting me with your vision. I really enjoyed creating it for you.
P.S. Green is my favorite color too.
