I began with a nice bright painted background, and then added the lined shape on the right. It was cut out of a magazine and I just sort of liked it. Then I painted on the pink shape on the left, and decided that they both looked like worms. Since it is a family joke that "worms have eaten my brain" some days, well you can see how I got where I went! So this was me on a "foggy" day sort of trying to communicate how it feels visually.
The writing and black lines/doodles are all done with a Posca paint pen, which writes over pretty much anything with a nice strong black result. I know I say this just about every week, but they really are fantastic and I can't recommend them enough.
Himself is finished with chemo and its lovely to see him getting back to his old self again. Surgery in about a month, and then a longish convalescence. If it saves his life we're up for it!
