In 2006-2007 I painted a pair of canvases based on a drawing I did in the late 90’s from a comic book I found in France called ‘Battle Chasers’. I titled the canvases Comic Girl. I painted them with aerosol using the painstaking technique of enlarging the original drawing using a grid, then a whole lot of masking & spraying.
I finally got around to building a frame for her! The frame is made from air dried garry oak with sapele & ebony splines and plugs. All the joints are through mortise & tenon. I finished with tried & true original recipe.
