“Cultural Fusion”, old work

 

This is an old work (2006?), that I created, originally, as a tattoo design.  The original pencil sketch was a version of the traditional Virgin of Guadalupe with Asian influences.  In this version, I used Mexican, American, and Asian styles to create the composition.  For the color, this was a piece to experiment with different marker and color pencil techniques.  When I did the color, I used different brands of markers / color pencils and tried new blending techniques.  Basically, this work was a test work for future projects.  However, although it does have issues due to the experimentation, I feel it looks pretty good for “test” work.
