The Ocean – digital illustration (iPad)
Eroticism is a storm on an ocean turned blood red from a setting sun. Small craft warnings are best heeded. Unless of course you want to drown in it.
Bound To It – pencil sketch
I feel obligated to draw as it is the only thing that I am impassioned about. But over the years this passion has become something of a prison that holds onto me rather than the other way round.
In Grey – digital illustration (iPad)
The older I get the more I appreciate the color grey. It all started after seeing Kim Novak’s clothes in Alfred Hitchcock’s film Vertigo (1958). It’s a warm color that also invokes a feeling of mourning, loss and death. The only other color that I know that does that is purple, and I don’t appreciate purple very much.
Meditation – digital illustration (iPad)
I’ve never meditated in my life. Perhaps I should, but something tells me that the blue black cloud will still be there, maybe even larger than before.
Ghosts – digital illustration (iPad)
During a period when I use to have extreme anxiety and panic attacks I had no sense of time in space whatsoever. It was as if I was a ghost, I cast a shadow, but was not there.
