Current Project: Monarch's Parlour Menu

I use acrylic, ink, house paint, watercolor, charcoal, glitter, graphite, crayons, markers, and whatever else I can get my hands on. Today, it's ink on newsprint. I am illustrating the new parlour menu for Monarch. Monarch is a hot new bar in the KC Country Club Plaza run by my most talented bartender friends. It's creative, thoughtful, fancy, and the best. It's the best because they want my art!

I am making illustrations/ ink drawings based on Edgar Allan Poe poems and stories. I chose nudes because I wanted them to be edgy and exciting. I like visualizing feelings and energies rather than being so blatant with the imagery. I want to convey a feeling. Let's hope they do that.
