[The original piece has been updated/retouched, taking off outlines, as a suggestion from friends and art crits]
This was my very first-ever piece in this Medium - Circa 2002. Pen & India Ink illustration on Clayboard, and then Scratchboard tools and techniques used to create scratched details.
This piece is going to be in "Menagerie of the Mind: an Exhibition Without Borders" at John Michael Kohler Arts Center from September 26 - November 28, 2010. It was even chosen as the piece for all the exhibition's marketing - www.jmkac.org/Borders
I think it will always be my favorite. Inspired by my High School Band called "ZebraTree" in which I was the vocalist... oh the memories! haha
