Path to an Unknown Destination appears

While searching tonight for a certain path'n'portal illustration in my files, I instead tripped across the image below and am uncertain whether it was ever published anywhere--and note that in person, the paper is blacker than it appears here, which of course also depends on the device you're using.

Anyway, check out an incomplete drawing 'Path to an Unknown Destination' which is how it feels these days under the Trump regime to live in a sabotaged America:

Looks as if the drawing was left about 1/3 of the way through...

A Sketch from Fractured Fashions 2012

Look! It's a page of collage, pencil, and ink from my 2012 'Fractured Fashions' sketchbook which I suppose still languishes among the 2012 Project Sketchbooks of other artists in the Brooklyn Art Library:

A Postcard from Lorna On Vacation!

Lorna On Vacation! And a jungle-y one at that.

But probably not Costa Rica which some say is the most biologically intense place on earth. What can really keep tourists away from beautiful Costa Rica at the moment is the current advisory from the US Embassy due to protests against the government's fiscal plan. Disruptions are expected.

Secrets in Shadows pencil on black paper Jude Cowell Art 2018+

July 12, 2018: A new drawing inspired by tonight's Solar Eclipse @20Cancer41 conjunct and activating one of the stars of creativity, Castor. Besides, any eclipse has the ability to suddenly uncover secrets and inconvenient facts with a cosmic blink from the Universe!

A drawing finally completed: Circe with Sisters!

July 2, 2018: Now that my eyesight is greatly improved to its former goodness after two surgeries (right and left), I'm happily at my drafting table again! Actually, the title of the drawing below is, Circe, Charybdis, and Thelma although which sister is which is a challenge only you, dear viewer, can figure out! What say you?

For more Jude Cowell Art images, you're cordially invited to browse my Fine Art America portfolio open for viewing 24/7! Now here are two...

Mythological Links of Interest--plus, Thelma:

The Spellbinding Story of Circe, Goddess of Magic (pronounced kir' kee, y'know).

Who Is Charybdis?

And then there's Thelma, a name which may or may not derive from 'will' or 'volition' for it does sound much like the arrogant Thelema philosophy developed by freaky devil-worshiper Aleister Crowley (1875--1947).

But never fret for no devils ever lurk in any of my drawings!

#124 Bambo Tuck's 'Shroom Home on Silvery Tree Path!

Here's an illustration of Bambo Tuck's 'ShroomHome #124 from my unpublished children's book Silvery Tree Path (circa 1996):

As were many of my drawings during the late 1990s, this one is drawn on black paper and embossed with metallic pencil which you can probably tell from the silver raindrops (actually aluminum pencil) in this scan of an actual photograph!

Portrait of an 'Incomplete Gal' - now Vivian Astoria!

*February 22, 2018: A few days ago I posted here a partially drawn image titled, 'Incomplete Gal' (name this drawing)'. Today I shall post the completed (fini!) pencil portrait of....

Vivian Astoria McClellan and here she is now...


Sending Thanks to All my Facebook Friends (you know who ya are) who suggested possible names for this visage, this character study in pencil!

But why 'McClellan'? For fun. And because for me it represents a 'mysterious' or hidden ancestral line due to 17th century morals (or their lack!) when titled gentlemen kept mistresses as if they were kings (the gentlemen, not the mistresses). And so it seems that if one of my Webb ancestors, John D. Webb, is in the line of a certain immigrant-to-America Thomas Terrance Webb as he apparently is, Thomas took 'Webb' from his mother's family (she, Ann Webb of Colerain, Ireland) and his papa was her main squeeze, Thomas McClellan so long hidden (as things now appear hundreds of years on). If you're wondering, the answer is No, Ann was not his only mistress. (Follow the Thomas McClellan link and scroll almost all the way down to the DF41 Webb Cluster paragraph.)

Which only shows that you never know which sort of nougat you'll bite into when shaking your family tree!

Now as you know, the McClellan surname through the centuries has picked up multiple spellings as so many surnames do and you'll find them and other historic details about the family if you check out the MacLellan Clan pages!

To close, here again is Version One of Vivian Astoria McClellan just to keep both images on the same page (although they are the same drawing!):

New! Incomplete Gal (Name This Drawing)

In the olden days of Secret Moon Art ('round about 2005 and beyond) I sometimes posted unfinished drawings in this gallery, then published the complete version a bit later. Since I recently began drawing again, the urge to return to this 2-step practice has overtaken my best judgment.

So here is my latest attempt--its working title, Incomplete Gal:

Of course, in a certain sense, as long as we're still around, we're all incomplete, are we not?

Even so, if you'd like to see the finished drawing, please share this post and/or comment...your suggestions for her name are welcome too! Does the gal pictured above favor anyone you know?

Jan 3 2018: A Bit of Jude Cowell Art for the New Year!

Here's a drawing from a few years ago titled, Par-Tay! which seems appropriate for the just-passed holidays. Par-Tay!, with its masks and Chirotic poses, was originally posted to my Cosmic Persona Designs collection but I shuttered it because Google and a few viewers couldn't handle chiffon-clad figure studies. Guess the old adage, Don't Go To those Places wasn't in their lexicon!

But never mind because in 2018 you are cordially invited to browse my FineArtAmerica Boutique of drawings now available in various forms! Actually, an art-decorated tote bag would be nice...

Wishing You All a Happy and Prosperous 2018!
