I Needed Color An inspiring video about Jim Carrey’s most recent creative direction. I was amazed to see a stupid critical review of his work in the GUARDIAN. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised but sometimes the asinine natter of critics still manages to shock me.
A common theme … nude female form … so aesthetic. This one uses an uncommon, of late, 4 x 6 form factor.
Sometimes my drawings border on cartoons. These are usually my least favorite but I post them anyway because a lot of people seem to like them … beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I prefer the simple, clean lines of much of my other work.
A throwback to my roots of simple pen and ink drawings. Every once in a while I think it’s a good idea to drop the color and hone my skills with line, form, positive and negative space.
Sometimes the significance of a piece – for me – comes to me after I draw it and name it. In this case I realized I had drawn a picture of the drastic change from bachelorhood to having a wife and her daughter living with me. It’s all good; they are sweethearts … just a drastic change )))
One common theme in my work is the creative nature of the spirit. Often it’s more subtle, but sometimes I hit you over the head with it … like this one.
A common theme in my work is faces in faces in faces. Sometimes it’s used to show a group of people, but more often it’s used to show a memory, an emotion, or the spirit.
The name for a piece usually pops into my head just as it’s finished … sometimes I have to struggle a little bit, but not too much. One friend suggested that I don’t name them and allow the viewer more freedom to interpret. I think the tittle is part of the expression and the viewer is always free to interpret.
Many of my drawings are about emotions … not necessarily my current mood, but something we’ve all lived through I’m guessing.
“Dark Mood” expresses the detrimental personal effect of harboring anger and hate.
