These are the last of the digital drawings created during my stay in Europe. I consider all the digital drawings as half finished. They are a starting point towards a finished piece that combines digital and traditional elements. The groups of drawing begin in Europe, and will be completed here, in the states.
One of the major advantages to working digitally, is that I am able to apply for shows worldwide. While in Slovakia, I was able to enter my drawings into exhibitions here in the US, one of which is opening this Friday, at UNM.
Another advantage, one that I have mentioned before came to mind later. While in Europe, the need to produce digital works increased. I did not have to scan them. Drawing on the iPad minimized the tools I carried with me. Yet i was completely seduced into buying German inks, paper, and all sorts of tangible materials. I didn't realize until after my hasty exit from Bratislava ( my legal status came to an abrupt end), how much easier it is on the drawer to work and move digitally. As I crammed my inks, brushes, pens, drawings, and paper into my REI Travel pack, I didn't once think to pack my digital works, which were of course, already safe in the "iCloud". Hmm.
