From The Vault: "Picasso Woman" - 2004

I did a couple pieces like this around 2004, mostly just to mess around and see if I could get a looser, more painterly look with digital-only tools.

I jokingly called these my "Picasso Pieces" because they seemed sorta silly and quasi-pretentious to me afterward. But by now I've sorted worked my way back around and I think this one at least looks kinda cool--nothing I'm dying to get back to, but a worthwhile exercise nonetheless.

Hey there, namesake!

I just discovered your art (when I searched on our name "Rob Kelly") and I'm really digging it.

I'm an East Coaster who moved to San Francisco with a Jersey Girl in 1992.

I'm looking forward to exploring your stuff.

Rob--Ha! I'm surprised I've never met another RK, considering how common the name is. Thanks for commenting.

I am jealous of you living in SF--love to move there someday.

Thanks for the nice words about my stuff!

Yes, SF is indeed wonderful...and I wouldn't be here if it weren't for a Short Hills, NJ woman I was dating who inspired me to pack my bags and drive out here!

Psyched to dig into your illustrations...quite creative.

Happy Halloween!
