Process: Window Frames for Now

I’ve drawn my forever friends many times throughout the years.  These days, we’re in different cities, and countries, even.  I wanted to make a place we can take and keep with us.

Though this was supposed to be a happy place, it sort of turned out ominous and foreboding.  I didn’t even get in all the drawings of them/us I  planned to use.  I got distracted with the clouds, and confused with detailing the frames.

My friends framed in this context reminds me more of the old woman’s house in Great Expectations than a nostalgia token we can keep in our hearts while moving forward.  I still like it, it just turned into something else.

I printed it on stickers two ways, so I can slap them up symmetrically.

Here’s a video of the process.  You can see some of the other drawings I planned to use before I got lost in the clouds:

I update my Exhibition Page with events and galleries Lorna Alkana Art is featured in.

I post on (or around) Mondays with new art/discussion of the process of works in progress, and Fridays with Comic Lorna in the form of an audiobio comic series called, Affect.
