This drawing is of preparations for a feast, in the kitchen of a fine home. The young woman with the goldenrod apron is a kitchen maid, and the lady of the house stands next to her with a piglet about to be slaughtered. The foods already prepared and in progress are on the large table in front of the two women. The lady of the house doesn't do any of the cooking, but she tastes things, selects ingredients (such as the piglet), and plans the menu itself.
Generally, my drawings involve a lot of malabranche and women (particularly in intricate, impractical outfits), with a healthy dose of bird people, descendants of lizards, ravenous female airships, two-headed little girls, monsters, nuns, religious imagery, the Geometric City, the Geometric Palace, and machinery.
I like to use micron pen 005, metal nib fountain pen, murano glass fountain pen, ballpoint pen, sharpie, koh-i-noor woodless colored pencils, colored pencils, oil pastels, acrylic paint, pencil, and charcoal. I like to make both tiny, tiny drawings, and paint murals and decorations on walls.
