I’ve gone on safari to Tahiti until January. Until then, happy holidays!

Growing Up

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2003


In following from my previous art piece, this piece depicts a scene from the Buffy episode, “The Body”. Tara comforts Willow as she copes with the death of Buffy’s mother. The title comes from the idea that Willow is growing up as she faces the death of someone dear to her, as well as discovering a new love (first kiss) with Tara.

If you haven’t seen the episode (or the series), I highly recommend it.

The pencil drawing itself was done in my 7 x 5″ notepad. I took some liberties in coloring it with Photoshop, though I’m mixed on whether it looks better in sepia or in color. Ah well, I may change it later.
