Lost is the word for Illustration Friday this week.  Can you see the cat and the bearded dragon that are lost in this forest?  I painted this from two different photos by Mginsberg at WetCanvas.

There’s a very good chance that you’ll see this one again…. in vivid color.  😀

About Henry Miller

The bohemian American novelist Henry Miller is best known for his sexually daring autobiographical novels, Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, and for his love affair with benefactor Anaïs Nin. He was born in 1891 in New York. His writing blossomed after he moved to Paris in 1930 but was banned in the United States for its erotic content. Miller eventually won the right to publish in the U.S., becoming an icon of the sexual revolution. He died in 1980 in California.

    I really like the detail with your fine marker in your jungle like drawing. I really would get lost in that. I can’t wait to see it in color.
