Dame: Sasha (5-13-13) SOLD

Sasha, Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $39.95


  1. Obviously she'll need someone to work the lotions in. xD Nice perspective!

  2. I volunteer to be the one to put the sunscreen on her and I'll even help her out with the other lotion!

  3. Assorted lubrications notwithstanding, this is a pretty slick piece! What I really am digging about it is the quality of light which permeates the drawing. You truly get an excellent sense of how the light is falling around the beach ball (important) and across Sasha as she lays there invitingly (love the hint of smirk on her face). Your shading techniques continue to evolve, and this is a perfect example of that. Not only is there a great 3-D feel to the forms of the piece, but you have also managed to capture that late afternoon axial lighting that so often heralds the sun setting after a long and pleasurable day by the sea. I guess I will have "The Girl from Ipanema" going through my head for awhile, but that's's that kind of Bossa Nova piece.

  4. Awesome piece Andy.

    Only missing is a hint of her toy du jour. somehwre in the bag. You could have maybe just had a part of it showing, but not enough to actually identify what it was. Or a shape in the side of the bag.

    It would have had us all speculating, ecactly what she was going to be putting thew sex lube on.

  5. Thanks, guys! Sounds like Sasha would have no shortage in help with her lotion (etcetera, eh?) It's true that I've been trying to pay more attention to how I'm putting the values and shadows together to "build" the shapes and composition of these pieces. One of my favorite things to play with, besides textures, is the "3-D" look that I go for sometimes. Glad to hear it's working! And as for toys, hey, that's a decent size bag she's got there- who knows what else might be inside? I have to admit that I was going draw something extra peeking out of the top of the bag, then decided to let it ride and keep it more ambiguous. I have to admit, though, I really like your idea of showing a vague shape or two bulging against the side of the bag. Wish I would've thought of that one- great idea!

  6. Man, I have GOT to check in here earlier. This piece was snatched up before I even had a chance at her.

    1. Hey, thanks for stopping in! I'm working to change things around so I can get new pieces posted more regularly, so keep an eye out. And feel free to drop me an email at if you're interested in having custom work done, or just want to say hi!
