I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! Doesn't quite feel like 2012 yet - perhaps because it's just beginning to feel like winter here in DC.
Anyway, above is a quick sketch that I did before working on one of the Fluffy the Chinchilla portraits. I was commissioned to do two, small portraits that were about 7"x5". Each collage shows a different angle of Fluffy. As you can see above, the sketch isn't quite accurate but it gave me enough detail to go ahead and dive into cutting and pasting paper.
And now I'm off to tackle a new animal collage. Have an artful week!
