Illustration Friday - REPEAT

"Those who don't remember the past
 are condemned to repeat it."
Played with my new stamp again.  This time I divided up my paper and painted each of the openings.  After drying, stamping with pigment ink allows the image to show up even against darker hues.  Some paper art tape (found in the drafting section  of the art store) camouflages ragged paint edges and adds enough contrast to allow each face to "pop"!

I just love seeing your works of Art Michelle, Andy Warhol look out.

I had the same thought as Lisa Lara! These faces make me think of Andy Warhol but I like yours better.

This stamp is lovely. Your simplicity of line, creating such an intriguing stamp--is just eye-filling.

Great idea to use different colours! I thought there was something different about the girl and now I know what: you made one eye disappear! I must say I like the look :-)
