Illustration Friday: Sticky


She dreamt sticky, asphalt-filled dreams...
(Better larger. Please do click, but try not to stick.)

Ha! I'm thinking hot black tar - and ouch!

Katili said...

A warm, sunny summer day and melted asphalt, great idea. I get the thought of sticky fingers, too ;-)

PMBC said...

I see you are a great artist not only with the camera but also with pens and pencils!

Lori Witzel said...

Thanks for all your cheers on my sticky piccie!

Some weeks the topics are more resonant for me than others, and this didn't tug my emotions but once I thought of using fingerprints I started having fun.

And Pedro, I blush at your praise.
Actually started my working life as an illustrator, but moved on to other things over time. It's odd -- I like drawing people not things, and I like photographing things not people.

Love it! Especially the finger tip swirls qua nipple/aureole!
I recently revived my rubber stamp collection and now know what to do with all those dirty finger tips! :-)

Lori, what kind of camera did you use on the high rise shot?

Lori Witzel said...

Khristina, glad to spread the "finger painting" idea...

;-)

FYI, just used the same camera I've been using lately -- Canon EOS Digital Rebel. Made a few compensations in photoshop to get the data captured to look like what I saw.

What a great idea and also a great illustration! I love it - I can not imagine having that fetish. . .

Karen McL said...

Very nice prints...(fingerprints. *wink*)

Great line drawing too. I really enjoy looking at paintings and sketches...but dont like doing them - my love is more in the 3-dimentional realm of media.

:-D

Lori - this is really great! I love the black and white, the lines of the figure, the textured look of the background, and the briliant use of fingerprints! She has such a satisfied look on her face...there's something really sensual about this, even though asphalt on tender body parts isn't my idea of fun! Excellent work...brava!

The Unknown said...

Wow! That's beautiful.
Great post.
love

CATRAVEN said...

Super illustration and those fingerprints! Really provacative in the concept of lying on hot asphault!
