Art Nouveau Ladies



This is a series of drawings I did quite a while ago, but I thought I'd go ahead post em up here.

They are my own original figures & compositions, but the style is obviously heavily influenced by the Art Nouveau movement, in particular the master himself, Mr. Alphonse Mucha. They are graphite on paper and each drawing is itty bitty, I think 2 ½" x 2 ½" , so about the actual size you see on screen.

Sweet, I could totally see those hanging in a ladies' bathroom in a bed and breakfast. Very Mucha :)

These are wonderful! I have always wanted to do a Mucha study, perhaps utilizing my wife as the model subject. You may have just inspired me to do so. Keep it up!

I'm not sure how to get in touch with you other than this--
I am completely in LOVE with your drawing titled 'Contemplation' and am interested in encorporating it into a tattoo. I won't do it without your consent, it wouldn't feel right. Let me know what you think about that....please and thank you.

Shafer Hello Ben, I really liked your drawings, especially the second image from top to bottom. I would like to get a tattoo with that image. You could send me it in original size? If yes, when my tattoo is done, send you a picture ok?
Thanks
