The OG illustrations of Beauty Mark Series.
The reason I felt obliged to start this series was because of so many annoying remarks in my life:
“Oh but it must’ve been easy for you to get a job, easy on the eyes”
“I am just trying to figure out how a gem like you is single”
“you’re not married and no kids? Oh.👀”
“I’m sure all you need to do is bat those pretty blues”
This series was to reflect that even though a woman may be beautiful, we have many underlying scars from our encounters in our life.
The exterior is always a bit more polished than the interior, because we don’t want to scare away the good ones. We don’t want anyone to know, we don’t want to be pitied, we don’t need a knight in shining armor - we need a companion. And several beautiful woman have been verbally abused, gaslighted and manipulated into believing they can’t do better.
Each one of these can connect with someone out there...
If you are in a unhealthy & toxic relationship, there’s still time to do you. 💓
I hope to FINALLY clean these up and offer as prints within the next 6 months. 🤞🔥🎉
The OG To & Fro was too big for page and not positioned on page as good as the other lady’s heads, so I needed to refine, and with that evolved the graphic element of swirls and I love what it became.😍
I have b&w prints 16”x16” signed and numbered for $20, only 3 left! -
Red Canary is my 2nd fave, I love how the bird has escaped the cage to sing and fly free....but the face shows despair...
I named it Beauty Mark Series because just how Beauty marks can appear ugly, they can also add character, how you’re remembered, and what defines you. Own it.
Original concept sketches are not for sale, and all were created with colored pencil and fine point marker/pen.
