The Pearl

I've been doing quite a lot of drawings recently. This is a new one, from this evening. I'm moving the scale up some.

Ship of Lost Souls

I think this small drawing may be a turning point for me, pointing the way forward. I'm thinking of doing some more complex, multi-figured drawings. I was looking at some of Breughel's work recently and admiring the way he could orchestrate a multitude of small figures within a complex large piece. We'll see...

Divining the Source

A new brush/ink drawing. The rounded triangle seems to be becoming a theme of sorts.

Space Oddity

Not really a tribute to David Bowie, this concerns the drawing below which came as something of a surprise. While I have read the odd science fiction book (Kurt Vonnegut, if he counts as science fiction, & maybe not exactly) & I like sci-fi movies, I don't really utilize such themes in my artwork. Until now. Or not. Probably an aberration, but not the worst thing I ever made...

Souls in Summerland

Another new brush & ink drawing, a series seems to be coming together. Also, this forms part of a series of faceless "souls" that I've done over the years. Summerland is apparently a name for the place on "the other side" where souls go when they pass, where everyone is happy and peaceful.

Here's a new ink drawing where I took the title from a Blondie song. I do this sometimes...use song titles or lyrics for my artworks. I always liked that song.

Medusa Again

Here is a new ink drawing of Medusa, a continuing thread in my artwork (along with other mythological figures such as Cyclops, Narcissus, etc.). This one is a little darker and more melancholy than most.

Head on Cardboard

A smallish drawing of a head done on a scrap of cardboard I cut from a box. I like the color & texture of cardboard. There is a bit of acrylic paint & graphite in this one as well.
