Hybrid Vigor 2: Golden Hour - Samantha
TRIGGER WARNING FOR SELF INJURY/CUTTING
giclée with gold enamel on thick velvet art paper
13 x 19"
closed edition of 7
January 2nd’s drawing is called Golden Hour. This is a pencil drawing scanned, painted digitally, then printed as an archival giclée and painted a second time with enamel paints, producing an unreproduceable hybrid between print and original media.
The grease stain on the paper inspired me to go with a cloudy motif, which will likely repeat because the next few pages are also grease stained, although in an increasingly smaller area.
The Golden Hour girls are each named after one of the seven most popular names for girls born in 1998.
WHAT IS THE HYBRID VIGOR SERIES?

For the month of January and possibly for the rest of 2013, I will be producing one sketch or drawing per day, and then producing it as a hybrid giclée print on the following day. I'm a little behind.
What do I mean by a hybrid? A combination print and original. A very short giclée edition (3-10 pieces) will follow, which will combine the scanned drawing with digital painting and, finally, real media painting on the giclée.
This piece has an accompanying poem by thedevouringseason on Tumblr: thedevouringseason.tumblr.com/post/40870755616/alex-is
