Embedded Gallery from

I've removed the embedded Flash gallery from, as it was destroying the layout of this page. As an alternative, I'm linking to the site instead, which may not be as attractive, but should work better.

Paintings: click here

Drawings: click here

I think the layout & interactivity of the galleries is particularly effective.

Alfred Kubin

After mentioning Alfred Kubin in the previous post, I did a bit more Googling & found a page with a good selection of images. These are not necessarily my "favorites", but there is a good range of his primetime work, I think. A note of caution -- there are some "adult" images on the page, so if you are upset at the sight of the unclothed human body and its parts in art, or other slightly disturbing things (Kubin's work is a little dark -- that's probably why I feel so in tune with him), you shouldn't click on this link. Don't say I didn't warn you...

Oh, and the page is in French. Bon chance.


Another Hell sketch, this one influenced by Bosch (pretty much a given) and Alfred Kubin:

Permanent marker on paper, 2007, 5.5" x 4.5" approx.

Kubin is one of my favorite artists, but I cannot find a good collection of his work online -- I was going to link his name to a site with images, but it didn't work out.


Another new sketch:

Permanent marker on paper, 2007, 5.5" x 4.5" approx. Another vision of Hell, but also reminiscent of some of my "Narcissus" pieces...

Little Demon

Another new sketch for the Heaven & Hell series:

Permanent marker on paper, 2007, 5.5" x 4.5" approx.

Kingdom of Lost Souls (Hell working sketch)

Here's a new small study for the "Heaven & Hell" (not just Hell any more) series:

Permanent marker (extra fine point "Sharpie") on paper, 2007, 9" x 6.5" approx. This may be the first time I've managed to achieve decent results with a mass-produced non art-specific writing implement...

Brush & ink on paper, 2007, 12" x 9".

Redeemer III

New painting, acrylic on board, 16" x 12":

I've always avoided this particular subject before, but since He is the most depicted image in Western art, probably...
