Clumsy-Illustration Friday

woodburn and painting on wood

Clumsy

In the beginning, there was no evil, but for a jar that Deity kept locked up in a cupboard, leftover from a previous experiment with another universe.  To keep His new project from being tainted, He called upon one of his angels to take the jar out of the studio, far far away.  Only his weakest and ugliest runt showed up.  Deity sighed, and gave him the jar.  “Take care with this, and remove it to a location far away.”

The crooked angel almost made it to the edge of the world, before the jar simply slipped from his hands and shattered on the ground, allowing evil to scatter to the ends of the earth and there flourish.  And so, Deity shrugged his shoulders and started on a new project.  The poor malformed angel was given the world to do with as he wished.

This is a WIP I started for Illustration Friday.  I’ve been wanting to pursue woodburning as an element in my work, hoping to find a balance between the woodburned elements, and those using paint or ink.  So far, seems way off balance.  I also used my new Dremel for the bird’s outline.  Weee fun.
