‘Moon Of My Soul ‘by Imani aka EmpressFaith c 1999
This is one of my smaller pieces which I had designed for my CD compilation collection back in1999. I love music and have an extensive collection, in fact I use to be a member of a women’s Sound System. I only came across this a few weeks ago, hidden in a plastic box with a couple of other covers. They all looked a bit dull, so I decided to brighten them up. I used silver and gold Uni Paint Markers as well as Signo Uniball green and pink metallic ink pens. ‘Moon Of My Soul 2’ is the result.
This is one of my earliest pieces, so early that I had forgotten about it. I was sorting out some of my old artworks and found this picture in a folder. I remember snatching moments to draw as my children were much younger then. Those were the days when I could be working on two pictures at once, it was like I was running on an engine of creativity.
‘Eye of The Beholder’ is made up of Black, Green Red and Silver ink on neon yellow card.
As well as working with metallic pens, I also love working with HB pencils, specially those ranging from 3B to 8B. Both of these pictures are on large bright orange card. There are times when I just cannot write and so I draw instead. I know so many beautiful Rastafarian Queens and try to reflect this in my art.
