Arctic Welcome

Product Description:

"Arctic Welcome: Done in winter time, mostly something started out of boredom. I actually like drawing whales, for some reason, and this gave me an excuse. I think I originally wanted the perspective to be more extreme, and continue to flirt with the idea of redoing, updating, or otherwise making another version of this image."

Arctic Welcome is available in digital format as well.

Chapel At Sunset

Product Description:

"An early attempt at Franklin Booth's style. I happen to like churches and cemeteries, and the twilit sky gave me opportunity to practice using line width to indicate tone. I think I've developed my trees to be better than what this piece demonstrates, and I believe that's the only thing I would change if I could."

Dream Of Flight

Product Description:

"Dream of Flight: I've always liked Da Vinci's drawings of flying machines, and wanted to put one in a slightly more modern setting, hence the man wearing a suit. It's meant to remark upon (though very loosely) modern humanity's loss of ambition, or at least ambition within a modern context, that people today, in order to be inspired to make, go, or do something revolutionary, they always have to have it couched in antiquated terms, or with references to past events. It seems we can't dream on our own terms, with our own technology, in our own age, with our own generation. We're always pining for some sort of past glory. Thinking about it, perhaps I should have put the person on a skyscraper. Would have been more obvious, perhaps, that way. Maybe I'll do that some day."

Dream Of Flight is also available in digital format as well.

Fairy Dream

Product Description:

"One of the very first pieces I did with a proper nib pen. I have a very deep infatuation with all folklore surrounding fairies, and one of their lighter aspects---since, for those who don't know, there is a lot of dark, even sinister qualities to fairies---is their playfulness, and a certain curiosity, as well as, in many cases, the person encountering a fairy is not entirely sure if they are actually interacting with a fairy or not (mostly due to their crafty nature). The girl, being asleep, could easily believe the playful creature about to tickle her nose to be an insect once she wakes. Above all, though, I wanted this piece to be peaceful."

Night Street

Product Description:

"This started as an exercise in reflections, actually. Originally, I had planned puddles in the street to be reflecting all the lights above. Now, since you don't see any puddles, it's safe to assume you've gathered that that plan didn't work out. However, I liked the rest of the image too much to destroy or discard the piece."

Trio

Product Description:

"Started as practice drawing crows, and eventually became three crows interacting. Part of the inspiration for said interaction was semi-comedic---as if the three have know one another for years, the bottom one being playful, who is being told to 'stop being silly' by the one on the right, who is very serious and doesn't have time for his antics, and who, in turn, is being told to 'lighten up' by the one on the left, who is the reasonable one of the group."
