I have been messing around a bit with images
this one was from a photo ref of an old Blikensdurfer Company typewriter from 1892, posted by a friend on wetcanvas. when I gave it life it kind of reminded me of a David Lynch film I saw years ago, but not as weird.
I call him Old Blicky
the next challenge was to paint like Gustav Klimt, I never appreciated his style quite so much until I tried this. It was fashioned after Klimt's "Death and Life", I chose only the life side of his painting and incorporated a group of clay figures provided in a photo ref, from a sculptures studio.
this was mostly done in ink and Inktense pencils
