Rivi Madi­son

“A quick draw­ing in­spired by the lovely model Rivi Madi­son. Ja­panese brush and ink over

pen­cils on Mole­sk­ine.”

Rivi Madi­son II

“This is an­other draw­ing of Rivi Madi­son,

which I started from life and fin­ished later. I was in­spired by her burst­ing-with­en­ergy curves, and cre­ated these lit­tle crea­tures and el­e­ments based on

her sil­hou­ette line.” “She is happy to pun­ish, he is happy to take it.””
