i have tried paint markers! i dig them, especially the kind that have "brushes" for tips. you can get standard non-paint markers that have brush tips as well. for this though, i'm just using sharpies so it serves as a "base" and then i'm going back and doing prismacolor (pencils) blending over it. it's a coloring technique i've been using for years and years...it's like *my thing* i guess....lol

HOLY SHIT! Insanely impressive.

My paint by numbers are pretty amazing. But, I guess yours might be better. ;)

I do a lot of nail art now, too. :)

This is a 4-part series called "Eden: The Board Game". This is an older piece created from photos of dolls exposed with liquid light onto various handmade papers, then montaged with painting and other materials. A lot of my work explores duality, especially in regards to gender roles and how they're defined for us.

I'd have to think about that translation. It's Vlaams, that's very related to Dutch, but not exactly the same. I'll copy it and come back to you later :)

u r AWESOME. i mean, it still makes little sense to me, but i got quite the kick out of that plaque and am especially fond of the strange expression on his face. he looks like he's about to do something he shouldn't! obviously a treasured figure to be pasted to the side of a building like that. love it! :lol:
