"the Oracle of July " -traditional media on paper approx. 14" x 30"
Of not so recent interest, this piece won the juried Best in Show award at the 2013 Gearcon in Portland, OR.
This is a drawing done with a white colored pencil and a collection of grayscale markers on an olive-green colored illustration board. The paper color provides the mid-tone value.
It is a portrait of my wife Katelyn (her birthday is in July). The four gauges on the bottom are labeled with the four Humours of historic medicine: Phlegmatic, Choleric, Sanguine, and Melancholic. Historically, the combinations of these four bodily fluid states will derive any and all personality conditions. The gauge on the forehead indicates the Menstruation Cycle.
So, in essence, a careful read of all five gauges will indicate the mood of the woman ensconced within the wall.
