Phoenix Symphony

What the heck did I do the whole time I was pregnant?  I don't remember.  I know I didn't paint much.  I did get to draw a lot.  My friend and photographer extraordinare, Jared Platt, asked me to help him with a project for the Phoenix Symphony.  He took photographs of the musicians and I made ink drawings to float in the backgrounds.  I love drawing and enjoyed the challenge of coming up with images to match the music and that would work with the figures in the foreground.  I used a calligraphy nib and india ink on parchment paper, then added some inky washes.  Here are some examples of the drawings and a finished product currently being used on the Phoenix Sympony's website.

(He's way cuter than the drawings)
