Back when Aya was airing some fears about going to an A3-size, while others offered tips & encouragement... that got me thinking about working BIG, which I never do. It certainly did sound intimidating, to use big space in full. You know, big art says loud & proud? The bigger we work, the more exposed we are? Yikes!
Since I have all large Moleskines in house lately, I am trying one double-page spread in everyone's to force bigger art into my regular repertiore. Ballookey's book was my first try, that 2-pg. Monarch butterfly. That went OK, but filling that much space was daunting for sure. Mike got this frog, which went a little easier. It's more about background textures than the frog itself, but hey, it's BIG so I think I'm building confidence. I used glitter again, so this frog is loud, trust me.
Oh, and I photographed this on a bed of tomatoes... cuz I had to work the garden into it somehow, HA!
