partly cloudy, chance of skulls (part one)

Not really sure why I've got skulls on the brain, but when I sat down to draw the other day this is what came out. I'm trying to figure out what to print in my upcoming silkscreen class that I'm taking at the Arts Incubator here in KC. The class is on December 6 - less than 2 weeks away - and I have no idea what to do... yet. I'm allowed to use 2 colors, and it has to be roughly 5X7 inches in size. Needless to say, I'm really excited to be taking this class because although I love silkscreen and collect silkscreen prints, I've never actually done it.

So, in preparation for my class and to try to figure out what I'm going to print, I've been doing these little black and white ink drawings. I'm hoping they might help to spark some kind of idea. I did this drawing yesterday, but instead of keeping it black and white, I decided to throw some other ink colors in there too. I'm enjoying doing these. Who knows what they'll lead to.

"partly cloudy chance of skulls" is both clever and awesome. You should totally print that. I would buy one.
