"Tiger Haven 2008"

~12"x12". gouache, pencil.

This is the cd label for this years charity mix album to benefit the Tiger Haven animal sanctuary. Each year has put this together and I've been lucky enough to have been asked to make the circular label design.

It's painted on an old palette. I keep them if they are interesting or look useful.

The surface isn't porous like paper or wood, it's like painting on a kitchen countertop. Which means that the image is particularly fragile and will just wipe right off.

Those of you keeping score might recognize that I did just that. This used to be the "Zora" image that I made for homework in my experimental class. I wet my hand, wiped the older image into a smudge and reworked it into this one. I'll be spraying it with polyurethane to seal it.
