circa 2002/Original piece is 18x24/*first time to ever use oil pastels
Thanks to the latest untitled Japanese collab I was reminded of a few of my very first pieces that I did when I was 19. I was very inspired/influenced by the Japanese culture and their art. In my first (and only) art class that I took in college one of the assignments was to create a piece that showed what influenced our work. Not sure if this is of use for the collab, but I thought I would go ahead and share them with you. It is such an odd feeling to look at these pieces again after so many years...
Also, I found a bunch of my first pieces tucked away in my old sketchpad that I had forgotten about. Due to their size my only option was to take a picture and try to crop them as best as I could. If anyone wants a version that is not cropped just let me know.
