Okay, I did not make this today, I just finished it today.
I made this last year (March 13) and I promised myself to finish it the next day but I guess, like many things, I forgot. I have left about a ton of unfinished artworks over the years (maybe it’s possible I have ADD? that might explain it.) so I guess I’ll finish some to post for my “An Artwork A Day” thing. Because I also promised myself to finish each one. That’s hitting two birds with one stone, right?
I used gouache on cream-colored watercolor paper. It’s the first time I used gouache, I hope it doesn’t look so bad.
I think I painted this back when I’ve just seen the movie “Where The Wild Things Are“. At the same time, I thought of Peter Pan‘s friends, the Lost Boys (that’s what they called themselves, right?). I didn’t have a reference for this. I just imagined a face. It ended up looking a bit familiar: it kind of looked like my old classmate, and a little like the Filipino actor, Piolo Pascual. . . or maybe I’m imagining things. If ever I’m not imagining things, those similarities are purely coincidental.
