More hands! I used to draw my hands in Calculus class in high school instead of taking notes, so naturally I had to make a living at something involving drawn hands rather than advanced math.
This piece was inspired by my painter friend, Kozuki Watanabe, who does these washy fields of color with lovely contour drawing-esque linear shapes and figures... I gave it a go with some diluted paint and drawings of hands I already had, because of Calculus.
She also inspired me to be more thoughtful and deliberate about my titles, and this one captures my fascination with hands and their gestural intimate communication.
