East Meets West: Matisse Manga

This concept should probably have a question mark: Matisse Manga? I love the Modernist drawing style where simplification was a focus. Matisse had his sweeping line for a face shape and the eyebrow / nose combination that Picasso swiped plenty of times. Add some really kawaii Manga eyes and the style just clicks, at least for me it does.

I have been drawing these cartoon people when I need something fun to draw from my imagination. Bold lines and bright colors give it a stained glass look or coloring book look. The inchie set above I decided to keep for myself. I rarely keep my work. maybe keeping on thing a year for hand-drawn and had-painted work. The artist trading cards, mail art envelope and drawing below have all been exchanged in the mail
