Circle Foundation - the first issue of Masterful Minds #1 digital magazine featuring 'Flower Duet' illustration in pen and ink (page 66).

Hello, I'm Joanna and this is my first attempt at 'blogging' so please bear with me.  I'm told that a blog is more like an online journal and that the idea is to write engaging content to keep your readers coming back time and time again (should you be lucky enough to have them of course). Well, I have to start somewhere so here goes.

The idea behind the painting was to incorporate as many personas and stages that Bowie adopted throughout his career, including song titles, hidden within the design itself. In hindsight I should have used art paper twice the size to fit more in!
