Mother of Dragons

I'm super excited to be a part of the upcoming Geek Girl show at Ltd. Art Gallery in Seattle. Hooray for Girl (artist) on Girl (pop culture icon) action! As a geek and a girl, this art show was right up my alley. I decided to draw Daenerys from the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin (aka Game of Thrones) in Disney style. Sketched it out in Corel Painter, colored it in Adobe Illustrator, and printed out onto acetate to give it an animation cel look. Almost done painting the back of the cel with white acrylic (to make the ink more visible) (a technique I learned about on Mike Mitchell's blog. Gotta frame it and ship it off ASAP! Also making a limited print run of it, in case the original sells immediately (please please please). Thanks goes to my buddy/fellow geek girl/amazing artist Lauren Gregg(who is also in the show) for recommending me to be a part of it. Can't wait to see what the other girls come up with. If you're in Seattle next Saturday May 5th, you should check it ooooouuut!
