meet an angel

Late last year, I met a smart, motivated gal, eager about ethics. She was excited to start working to draw a story involving angels.

I had never really talked to anyone who put a lot of stock in angels, who saw them as actors, or vessels for hope or story. Today hanging out at Howard's house, he loaned me paper and pencils and I sat down for a visual meditation. Without doing any image research, I pulled from my memory, imagination and free association to describe the essential characteristics, shapes and colors of winged do-gooders.

Here's what I found:

The experience leaves me curious to explore the presence of triangles and the color red in angel imagery. And to ask this woman how she plans to depict the flying and the fallen.
