"Lost Fey" - Ink
Here is drawing of a melancholy fairy. This piece is special because it is reminiscent of work in which I focused on a melancholy mood through the use of hidden faces behind flowing black hair. In this piece I updated this to include a feeling of being lost along with the idea of fantasy gone wrong. I was struck by this idea when thinking of fantasy work to do, but didn't want a carbon copy of everything else out there. This strikes a chord because its more human than anything and brings the magical world more into reality. Instead of drawing the viewer into a world of myth, our idea of this world is called into question. I can't wait to explore this more, and have found many artists using the fantasy world as a mirror to our human mind, and I thinks its great!
