Here are some new Monotypes that I made to continue my personal exploration of the mythical human figure engaged. It is so much fun to try and draw archetypal relationships of connection, emotion and feeling and put that on an inanimate sheet of paper. In my view as an artist, it is what we are all striving to do, connect to the viewer through emotion, intellect and design. Over the weekend my gallery caught a young couple posed and smooching in front of one of my pieces, I loved hearing that. To view more work in this style please take a look at my Couples series
Here is a print just in time for the holidays. I originally created "Brown Pelican" in response to the BP environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. The piece caught the attention of the Sea Turtle Restoration Project and those good folks have been very supportive of my work. I sold the original and received enough print orders to release an archival print in an edition of 35. I worked closely with the printer to produce a print that I can honestly say looks as good as the original. $65.00 includes shipping in the U.S.
I was honored and happy to hear that these 2 Turtle Monotypes were juried into the Illustrators 53
Institutional Exhibit. These pieces were part of a series created through an invitation by the Sea Turtle Restoration Project
to participate in a show and benefit titled, "Save Them All"
to help restore habitat destroyed by the BP oil spill. Thank you, Society of Illustrators!
