lots of stuff

 Here's some of the stuff I've been up to in the past monthish!

Got a new sketchbook, restarting my habit of filling up the inside spread with something.

Felt pretty excited by collage for a little, definitely gonna see what else comes out of it.

Also wanted to try my hand at some really slow pencil drawings.

I've always had an interest for the flowery/baroque compositions of Romanticism, as well as the general idea of this big transcendent force we all grapple with.  I came across this Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy-Trioson (who I honestly hadnt really heard of before this) painting "Ossian Receiving the Ghosts of French Heroes" (found here) and loved how kind of ridiculous and epi  the composition and idea of it was.  I definitely got the sense of how this might have influenced mainstream comics.  I felt like trying to draw it.
