Another page for my Depressing Faerie Alphabet Book: a fae having her soul removed, and not in the sweet painless 'Dead Like Me' sort of way.
Not so sure this is going to remain the H page, though. I did 'Hollow' because that was the Illustration Friday word of the week… except my illustration 'Fridays' usually end up being Saturdays or Sundays. I love the image (at any rate, the screentones came out better than those of Worn), but it seems there's so many better options for wording. Especially if i forego traditional dictionary definitions for something like 'S is for Soul: The primary nutrition of cursed items'.
Keelan Rosa, Pennsylvania Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement
Keelan Rosa first became interested in art when he was two years old and has been fascinated by art, illustration, and design ever since (the unhealthy obsession with all things sci-fi came a bit later). He's especially fond of figure art, and the challenge which goes along with trying to show a complex personality in a simple image.
Keelan was trained in traditional media but prefers working with a combination of traditional and digital media. He has also worked in a variety of subjects and styles, but is currently focused on finding the union between humans and other aspects of nature.
Started with pencil-scribbles at the kitchen table, then studied at Sue Hand's Imagery throughout most of his school years. Keelan also spent all of two years as an art major at Syracuse University and Sage College before dropping out of art school to study business (aka, How to Make Enough Money to Continue Being an Artist). He still attempts to learn new art techniques on a regular basis, but this now comes primarily in the form of ImagineFX magazines instead of studio classes.
