Ink Blot Illustration: Woolly Dragon

Woolly Dragon Ink Blot Illustration by Lani Mathis and Michael Ayers of GreenSpaceGoodsWe have to admit that coming up for a name for this one was really difficult. Is it a dragon? A creepy guy? Some mutant sperm? Finally, it was decided that a woolly mammoth and a Chinese dragon had a complicated love affair and this was the result. (Please don't notify the asylum. We're fine. Really…) I'd like to incorporate more of the 'fur' technique used on his chin in other pieces. I'm liking it. So feel free to come up with your own name for this cheerful specimen and leave it in the comments for us :) And if you fancy him enough, he will be listed for sale in the shop tomorrow.

Oh, and thank you to everyone who voted on our Halloween pumpkins!!!! I am happy to say that my (Lani) Day of the Dead Sugar Skull pumpkin won 46 to 29 (not that I'm gloating or anything :D ) Michael's Franken-Tiki was truly awesome and he's only sulking a little.
Have a good week everyone!

Your drawings/illustrations arew wonderful. Are they done in pencil first or do you go right to the paper with ink?

Thank you very much bridget (and everyone else :) All of our Ink Blots are ink straight to paper. Here is an excerpt explaining our process:

Without a plan in mind, Michael and I pass the image back and forth adding pieces as we go. The process induces a creative flow of thoughts that seem to drip onto the page and before long- a blot is born.

That is super cool. Your InkBlots are spectacular.

I do some of my paintings as stream of consciousness paintings, no planning, no thinking etc. If you want to see a few, see my post on my blog about my new Art Deco Series.

I just want to say that the dragon fish in the picture above is realllly good! It is said that in every indian tribes there are paintings and drawings of either gods or higher beliefs. This looks very religious at the same being quite modern
