I love it when I get inspired by other artists (generally those that are much more awe inspiring than I am). Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of Ellen Jewett’s work in sculpting, and it is absolutely extraordinary! I LOVE the detail! It has that surrealistic look, and the way everything intertwines just blows my mind. Here are a few of her sculptures.

Are they not gorgeous? Anyway, I set out to re-create something similar in drawing. (I wrote an entire post here, about drawing). I certainly want to pull out my clay some time, but right now I’m a bit to busy to sit down with clay.
I like the way it turned out, although it certainly doesn’t have the same extraordinary depth that her sculptures do, but for trying a new style I think I did pretty good. Thanks for stopping by, if you made it through all those pictures that is 😉 Oh, and I would appreciate you guys telling me what you think down in the comments, and please check out Ellen Jewett’s website here.
