It's funny because it's both self-deprecating and sincere.

Oil on gessoboard
Instead of avoiding blue things during my no blue challenge week, I decided that it was probably a good idea to explore how to tackle them head-on. So here is my snuggly blue blanket! I still need to work on drapery, and the edges aren't stellar, but it was a good exercise overall (in my opinion). I didn't use a strong, direct light in this one, either, which was a... choice, but which in itself has merits - not every illustration I'm going to be doing in my future will have the sort of contrasty light that I've been working on to-date.
