Othello: Red

This representation of the Moor of Venice was largely inspired by my trip to the Alhambra several years ago.  I love the complexity of Moorish architecture and patterns—the relationship with Desdemona and the scheming eyes of Iago are featured among them.

Adventure Animals (ink + wash paintings for my son)

For these paintings, I decided to combine the animal motif of my son's room with images that could be found in classic, adventure movies.  I used the gouache paint + a nib pen for detail.
