The Color Witch (Color Climax)
Colored pencil and graphite on paper
8 x 10 inches
Hurricane Sandy has provided a good time to be productive and work on some drawings. I am very excited about this piece, as I have been thinking of this project for some time. “The Color Witch” is a piece I would like to create in either a live action video or in an animation form, I’ve been debating for awhile on how to approach it. This drawing is a sketch for a pivotal scene in the narrative. In “The Color Witch” a white witch (me) is hunted down by evil blue gummy sharks. The witch, in defense goes into a state of levitation where she bursts and blooms into color, incinerating her foes, and herself. The piece works with themes of persecution, gender, resolve, self-doubt, and ultimately self-empowerment. These are archetypes and ideas I’ve been interested in, for some time now. This drawing makes me feel like I would like to do an animation-drawing style approach to this piece, but we’ll see what happens!
