I've been reading Enki Bilal's "The Beast Trilogy" recently and fell in love with his gritty, expressive, layered mixed media technique. I swooned over every page, especially those that featured crimson red details in otherwise cool monochrome scenes, which is totally my thing. (And this guy is doing it SO much better.) It gave me a kick to try using light layers of acrylics with drawing media on top, which I never tried before because I didn't think it could even work? And lo and behold, it can work.
So yes, I think you'll be seeing more of this.
