IF: Shadows

Shadows cannot see themselves in the mirror of the sun. 

Evita Peron

Beneath the social mask we wear every day, we have a hidden shadow side...

He is not my friend, but he is with me
Like a shadow is with a foot that falls
Suzanne Vega


  1. Cool! I especially like the first one! Is it scratchboard?

  2. this was said by Eva Peron? I never would have believed!!

  3. You could have illustrated very well The Necronomicon!!!!!!!!!!

  4. The first figure is equal to the Cthulhu !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I do not sleep tonight !!!!!

  5. ok enough jokes.
    Very good illustrations.
    Gran poder visual.
    Muy expresivas!!!

  6. oh Suzanne Vega was born in Santa Monica and I live in Santa Monica!

  7. ah .. no, the colors are not amazing ... are Winsor & Newton
    I tried a while Amazing watercolors, but I found poor quality and now I use W&N :)

  8. @Lynette: thank you for your comment. No it is not a scratchboard. I "scratch" it in copper plate and than edited on the computer.

    @ Howard Phipps: Thank you, Howard, for visiting my shadows! It is not, of course, comparable to your Wood engraving work.
    But who knows, maybe one day…..

    @ The Whisperer in the Darkness: I am afraid me neither!!

    @ i got a Naam: Gracias, señor, se lo agradezco mucho

  9. @ yo: what a coincidence !

    @ Henry Akely: you can whisper what you like, of course , but I LIKE your color. DOT.

  10. Oh noooo you confused me with Phipps. No no I'm HPL
    Howard Phillips (for my friends), who was born in Providence, do you not remember me ...? I am ... that of the Myths!!!!!!

  11. Sorry Howard, it is soooooo confusing....

  12. hello?
    im awake now, really awake, can you see me???

    nono, thats not me, you're talking to my shadow.


  13. i must say, i like the first shadow (nice job, had no idea how you edited it... photoshop?) but i like the shadow of you even more, heheh :D

  14. bytheway, im not talking about the third shadow (though your shoe is great!), im talking about your another shadow in the teapot... if it is a teapot, sorry if im mistaken...

  15. speaking of blogname, back again to the old ART IS JOKKEN... you really like playing with blogger :D

  16. Oh , glad you are awake, I see you. Yes Ps is almighty.....
    You are definitely right: my shadow looks much much beter than me! (yes, it's a teapot)
    If I do not play in sandbox than I play with Blogger....It is all about playing, isn't it?
