This blog is about The Blood Portrait Project. For this project I have learned safe venipuncture technique to be able to draw blood from an individual and paint their portrait with that blood. Enjoy!

Done in watercolor and my blood.

PROVISIONAL PATENT

I received a letter in the mail today from my lawyer saying I have a Provisional Patent on my method of Blood Portraiture!

Wooo!

Blood for Equality

Blood for Equality

"just me and my broken heart"

made with black ink and my blood

If I was sad in the summertime
You showered my heat with salt tears

When defeat rang in the fall
You brewed me kettles of comradeship

Loneliness lingered this winter
But your voice came every day

And now spring.
Your void is bleeding

When it clots I imagine I’ll be someone new
