Zine Submission

Here goes nothing! I've just sent my first zine submission for a lovely new project called Little Constructs.

Title: The Heart Of The Pink Forest

The theme to follow and freely interpret was a poem by Ezra Pound:

"The tree has entered my hands, 
                                                             The sap has ascended my arms,
The tree has grown in my breast- Downward, 
The branches grow out of me, like arms. 

Tree you are, Moss you are, 
You are violets with wind above them. 
A child - so high - you are, 
And all this is folly to the world."

The inspiration and idea was immediate and so I started with a pen sketch of the girl and frame and later added the coloring and the trees in the background digital in Photoshop.

I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it will enter! 
But for now it's very very late here and so I'm saying good night 'all.
