A fanciful figure study from my Cosmic Persona Designs collection of Boudoir Blossoms and Chiffonery Art portraits – some moody, some fashionable!
For 17+ viewing only; all Art copyrighted by artist; no photos involved.
PS: it’s only Art. People have been known to view it and go on to live perfectly normal lives afterward. Promise. jc
Now appearing in sepia, here’s a drawing from my Cosmic Persona Designs collection of Chiffonery Art, Boudoir Blossoms, and other fanciful figure studies for the 17+ among us.
But if you’re as fond of sepia tones as I am, you may wish to sashay over to Sepia Art Theater for more! You might arrive just in time for rehearsals.
Well, that would be yours truly!
Happily I am honored to be chosen as Wandering Educator’s September Artist of the Month.
You may check out the interview where I discuss my artistic influences, background, and creative process here:
Perhaps you don’t think I HAVE a creative process, but I beg to differ! You’ll find that a varied sampling of drawings is featured within the interview so mosey over to Wandering Educators when you get a mo, okay?
Tropical storm Fay has killed 4 people already and is on her way toward the Florida Straits and the Gulf of Mexico, and is set to sweep through Cuba first, they said on my TV.
Fay – or ‘Faye’ in my family! - is a faerie-esque name that I’ve always liked and have even used it for one of my archetypal drawings, Faye’s Magic Lamp. Not much magic in stormy Fay, however, and I wish all well who may find themselves in her path.
It does seem that bad weather follows eclipses and August has been replete with Solar and Lunar lunations, hasn’t it? And August, forever my least favorite month, isn’t over yet.
So here’s a small something for the 17+ers (which may be two out of three readers, as I realize daily – otherwise who keeps searching for the word, ‘weed’?)…anyway, you may have seen this drawing’s image on this very blog, but here’s the original publishment of Faye’s Magic Lamp:
And how about a link to a brief Cosmic Art SlideShow for the Moon Art-inclined?
There! now you’re all hooked up, but no weed included, you naughty monkeys…well, except for:
Happy Frisky Friday, Everyone!

And I’m sending a big Shout-Out of moral support to the editors at TopTenSources – hope things get up and running again soon.
Yes, the friskiness has left the building in many time zones…translation: this drawing is being published quite late for Frisky Friday Art.
And it’s not as if I splash up one of my archetypal Chiffonery Art images every Friday, Venus’ day though it may be.
Still, I hope Dora (titled prior to my hearing of the children’s character, Dora)–I hope that this Dora and her primal emotions of material envy are of some small entertainment for you, Lone Viewer, because with the way the world is going, you could definitely use a smidge of mindless visual fluff.

There ya have it: a virtual representation of a lifetime of drawing…hope you have a mo to mosey by a gallery or two and check out my artwork–or someone else’s (you’ll find plenty of links on my blogs for convenient let-me-outta-here surfing, too.)
Now sashay outside to see some Art in your neighborhood and if any shows are on display, please support your local Art Exhibitions and Artists…
Wishing a Happy Weekend to All! jude
Hope this Art Slideshow displays in your browser but if not, go to http://slide.com/judecowell
and take your pick of several displays of my artwork.
If you’re an artist, you may add an image of your own to one of my collections, but no photos please, and keep to the theme, if you may. Thanks!
Faye’s Magic Lamp, drawing by jude cowell 2008…not Aladdin’s Lamp prexactly, but you may still click to enlarge for the genie just may appear.
So why, Frisky Friday Art? Friday is the day of Venus who appreciates the creative arts! (Perhaps not mine, but generally speaking, she does.)
And it’s my poor attempt to balance the weightier and lamentable subject matter to be found here bwo astrologically based comments on…ugh and arghhh…politics, that organized system of hatreds in process of overtaking, undermining, and overwhelming our lives.
For the majority of our global population, the New Millennium sux so far–and I blame it primarily on racketeering, warmongering, conscience-free sociopaths. How ’bout you?
(And please don’t pretend you don’t know their names.)
