Ninth swap card and Daily Doodle!



Moon Jellyfish is the last of my Under The Sea swap cards. I'll get this packed up and addressed, do a cool bookmark to go with it and then I'm done with all my June swaps.

Meanwhile this morning I did a doodle ACEO that wasn't quite Under the Sea, though those chaps in it are probably close to being Under the Sea soon!



ACEO Sea Storm June Doodle is another of my 99 cent start Doodle ACEOs. I like how it came out, the wave was inspired by my memory of Hokusai waves and I put in the boat in memory of Hokusai woodcuts too, but it was also influenced by many little scrimshaw pieces I've seen and some 18th century and 19th century engravings. I like how it came out. I may do some more "above the sea" pieces next, having done a lot of undersea scenes!

I was just waiting for etsy to accept some images I was uploading, and went searching for the meaning of ACEO (I keep forgetting what it stands for)... I found ACEO magazine, and see "Robert A Sloan" listed among the writers; I was sure that seemed familiar...

Sure enough... I'd seen you through nicosian.

The waves in this piece ARE very much of the Japanese woodcut sort. Very nice piece.

Thank you! Yeah, I think we even chatted a couple of times, xinit. Nico and I go way back.

ACEO is Art Cards Editions & Originals, and the rule is that it has to be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", the size of a trading card. I keep thinking sometime I ought to do one about an inch or an inch and a half thick, since thickness doesn't matter.
