"The Yellow Passerby & I," ink, graphite & colored pencil, 13.5x19"
(will be available for purchase at krabjabstudio.com)

"There are things in that paper which nobody knows but me, or ever will. Behind that outside pattern the dim shapes get clearer every day. It is always the same shape, only very numerous. And it is like a woman stooping down and creeping about behind that pattern. I don’t like it a bit." -- The Yellow Wallpaper

Diving back in time to illustrate one of my favorite stories, "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, for the upcoming Krab Jab Studio group exhibition on April 9th!

"The Yellow Wallpaper" is a story that every English major will probably read at least once per semester all the way through college. It's a great story though, and this piece captures it nicely.

Aah, one of my favorite stories in high school. This does a great job of capturing some of the underlying themes.

Love, love, love! It's a beautiful illustration. But it also contains interesting textures and shapes, the hair and flowers, as well as the black and white spaces.

Beautiful art with stunning composition and flow. It's just perfect, not in a calm and boring way, but full of unanswered questions and new detail to discover.

This is amazing! A feast for the eyes. Wow! 
You can look at it while following where the black goes.
Or your eye can follow the gold.
Every time you see something new.

Really nothing I don't like about this...
The softness of the skin and features, the flowing hair, the balance of black and white, and the gold!
Thanks for sharing :)
