A portrait of Frida Kahlo. I love her work as well as the myth-like way her story is told.
Trying to utilize what all my print making classes have taught me and combining it with the infinite possibilities of working digitally. A long time ago I had a huge prejudice against digital work because most of what I saw looked very cheap, but the more I work with it the more I appreciate what it can do. There's something very invigorating about a medium that responds almost instantaneously to your thought process, it feels almost like writing in a journal. Plus because it doesn't require the same temporal linear nature of sketch-refine-color done it bypasses some of the beaurocracy of what it means to make a "finished work". I can have everything going on at once and change any part of the process to my hearts content.

It's time travel.
