IB: Theme of My Work

In DDT we're progressively working on a final project that'll pretty much lead to making print media [postcards, posters, business cards, ect] that will sell ourselves.
Above is the inspiration board I made to help understand the direction I want to go in, concerning my art.

The color pallet consists of blacks, whites and greys. Subtle desaturated colors may be used.
The mood is primarily "Dark Glamour". Romantic, moody, elegant, dark. Pearls, lace, damask patterning, Victorian influence . As well, a bit of tattoo/graphic influence, pretty linear.

This is ideally how I want my work to go in the future, personally.

I'll share the rest of the progress as I go along.

The Venus of TaTa Gala

This is my submission to the TaTa Gala in Sarasota this coming weekend. I still have the pencil version and it's apart of a series I'm working on for my Workshop class.
I made an ink version specifically for this event and to support Susan G Komen for the Cure.
If you get a chance to I encourage you to attend this event at the Sarasota Design Center [formally Digital 3] The $5 donation at the door and sales of artwork all benefit the foundation's breast cancer research.
I've been thinking about making prints on my own of this image to raise more money for Susan G Komen for the Cure. I was curious to know if anyone may be interested in a print if I made some? I'm still looking into the sizes and price but, I will make you all aware of what I find out.
