It seems that the red, black, white, cream, gold, and silver color scheme is symbolic of my alter egos, the cast of characters that is often ignored in favor of a candy-colored world. When I want to dive a bit deeper into my psyche and imagination, it is a natural choice to use a more monochromatic scheme as the landscape for my explorations.
Each page in my book of inner monsters features a watercolored character mounted on top of a small monochromatic collage. Lots of white space is also a hallmark of this style since that's the exact opposite of how I typically work. I don't think too much about the monsters beforehand; I just paint some blobs of color on the paper and see what I can discover in the pools and swirls of paint. This, too, is a refreshing departure from the norm.
