Color Me Audrey : A Tribute
Scanned artwork.

Some time in November 2008, I was on a random Google hunt and found this treasure trove:
http://


I liked her art so much that I had to forage for her B&W prints/sketches so that I could print them out and give them a touch of my color-sense.

They're a rare find, considering that she makes money out of painting wooden planks and boards.

Fascinating, still. And these are the results of using [mostly] pastel pencils.



Q: Wow, did you draw them?
A: Only for patterns/details.

Q: So you mainly colored?
A: Oui.



More to come soon!
November 2008 or earlier.

My 1st colorart of [one of the gazillion] the drawing by Audrey Kawasaki.

Pastel colour pencil on grey-scale print.

This picture was taken by an old friend's Hello Kitty phone,
shortly before I gave the original print to  Dion I-don't-know-his-last-name a couple of days earlier. 
In return, he gave me his purple The Ophelia's Project
A family heirloom, according to him.

It was not a barter trade but I liked the guy.
My 2nd colorart. Completed during Nov '08.

A fave.

The 6th. Completed on April 3rd, 2009.

Regular colour pencil on grey-scale print. The head was made of crayon.

Did not use pastel pencils. Why? I was at a hospital when I completed this. During my stay, patients aren't allowed to possess color pencils, because apparently some time in 2008, some patient tried to mutilate their abdomen with a color pencil so I was forced to use my charm to weasel a few color pencils from the nurses and therapists. Just some crummy color pencils your average 4-year-old would eat.

So I used the average crayons and some color pencils. And eventually a green pastel chalk for the eyes, and pink for the lips. Accidental smears.

Male Nurse: She looks like Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction! I lovvvve Uma Thurman. If you can draw me Uma Thurman, I'll like you forever.

Me: ...But, I don't want you to like me forever.

Male Nurse: Then I won't like you forever!

Me: That's a lie.

Male Nurse: Then I won't care about you forever!

Me: That's a lie too.
