Illustration Friday-fragile

I tried to think of fragile things like babies, glass lanterns, vases , my self esteem at times and this is what I came up with for this weeks illustration. My drawings tend to be over stuffed and frantic which basically is a metaphor for my life and frame of mind as it is presently.
I also experimented a bit with layering papers and painting more with my pastels by mixing them with an acrylic medium and layering pastel ground over the collaged papers so that they could be drawn on more effectively.

Hey Chris,
You need to experiment more with this layering of paper, it's a wonderful effect!
