Erasing Erasing Erasing Erasing

Every artist has a process and mine includes some elbow grease before I get to have fun and begin slinging colors all over the bristol board for my illustrations.  For the record, I loathe erasing- you think this would be a very simple and trivial step in the creative process but it depends on the scale.  For my Zombie Walk of Fame series in progress, I've sketched and outlined 101 celebrity zombie portraits. Can you really make a blog post about erasing?  You can if you do it for 2 1/2 hours, which is what happened late last night when I decided to go ahead and erase the 90 or so portraits I had left to clean up so I can go wild with coloring them!

Here are some previews of Zombie Walk of Fame and the mess I made...

Humphrey Bogart Zombie!

Charlie Wolfman Bennett gave me a Moo Eraser to try out recently; here is was left of the whole stick plus an entire Mars Plastic Eraser
