XI by RoseCarballeira
Dust is not a constant. There's not a fixed quantity that has always been the same. Conscious beings make Dust, they renew it all the time, by thinking and feeling and reflecting, by gaining wisdom and passing it on."
-Philip Pullman

So this took me months.

I love the mystery of medieval Tarot cards and alchemical illustrations. That was what I wanted to explore. The numerals refer to the cards in the Major Arcana that I was most inspired by.

Happy Halloween, ghosts and ghoulies!

I have benefited so much from giving myself annual "assignments," such as my Chinese Zodiac project. Last year, I began what I hope to be a long tradition of Halloween themed drawings. I love the occult and the supernatural! I'm so happy with the progress I've made artistically since last year:
Happy Halloween! by RoseCarballeira

Admittedly, that was a rush job, but I think I grown in my ability to fulfill my intention.

Still a long way to go, but I consider this a little win :)

Between the Woods and the Sea
I'm a problem solver by nature, but sometimes there are no solutions and that's why I make art. I grew up in two very different environments, always going back and forth, never knowing which one I belonged in. Here, at least, they are unified.

Still not sure if I'm happy with this one or not. Maybe if I don't look at it for a few weeks I'll be able to decide.

Thanks to :iconjagged-eye: for the photo reference!
