A bit of everything in here. Sculpture, illustration, abstract art, concept art; most of my work has been done in traditional media, but lately I've been branching into the digital realm as well. I'm going to post a small sampling of my old stuff as sort of a prologue before starting in on my recent work.
First up is an illustration of the famous E.A. Poe, done in oil pastels on heavy paper.
I'm lumping 2009 and 2010 together; I did a lot of photography in this time but little else art-wise, as I was going through some personal stuff which made it difficult for me to find the time and space to create.
Yeah, my style covers a lot of different genres. The nautilus one is sort of an expressionistic piece. It is supposed to suggest how ancient the instinct of attraction is, how deeply ingrained in us this thing we call "love" is; it's in our very DNA and has been reinforced over millions of years of ancestral sex through millions of different species.
Anywho, here's a WIP for the latest ChOW contest. The theme is "Steampunk Aphrodite Goddess." I am working to bring out both the steampunk and the Aphrodite, but at the same time I absolutely hate relying on clichéd genre identifiers, so I don't want to use hearts or cupids, nor goggles or lacy hats.
