originally posted 4/4/14- just submitted this piece for a pixies lithograph contest over at creative allies. this contest is in conjunction with the release of their 6th studio album (and first since 1991), INDIE CINDY. there are some good designs over there so regardless of how it all pans out, it's been fun. i've been a fan too long to resist a chance to do anything for the pixies. this piece also marks the first full marriage for me of traditional hand-drawn work with digital treatment. it was pretty satisfying and i see a lot of potential in this approach.
