And the last of the Gallery Nucleus Airships show pieces.
I can always count on you bhanu!
I love the dreamlike effect of it! The panda one is my fav!
really nice work...!!!"
Something for Earth: Fragile Planet, an exhibition coming up at the Society of Illustrators museum of Illustration in NY. I'm working on a kids' book version of this too.
Just another little painting on copper. I walk it three times a day.
Beautiful and inspiring work! Kinda like riddles between sleeping and waking.Thanks for continuing to post.
From Gegarin's point of view
Thanks. Love that, riddles between sleeping and waking. That's when I get a lot of my ideas. You can find anything on youtube have you looked up raining whales?
I love the feeling of!!!
Here are a couple of paintings done on copper for a show at Gallery Nucleus honoring Alice in Wonderland. Apparently some of the artists from the movies will be involved. The last piece is for something called Brownstones to Red Dirt. A great project involving kids from the inner city and kids from other countries being pen pals. Links for both are down below.
Alice and Mad
Dude, What are You Wearing
uhhh no i havent youtubed raining whales, hehehhe.
I think the theme of alice in woncerland helped the paintings here even more since the original novel is also very dreamy, almost like a vivid lucid dream. The surreality of the image here makes the painting a dream, yet the content holds itself together maintaining that lucidity(is this a word?).
I am a really big fan of your underpainting/backgrounds.
Thanks you guys. The Alice show will be cool. Lots of great artists involved. Seems to be a theme suited to my work.
Final piece in the Alice series for Gallery Nucleus. Should be a great opening. I wish I could be there but will be jurying Spectrum 17 over the weekend, so I'm still accepting bribes.
that last piece is really cool
Yes, you're right, your work is a little different, but I like it. Very surreal. I would love to see some of your techniques described.
Thank you for looking and liking. I guess I can't help being a little different. Just got back from jurying Spectrum 17 and am still on a high so am extra happy for your kind words.
A commission for a client in New Zealand, and a small copper piece, 2.5 x 2.5 inches. Wow, I love doing this stuff.

You never cease to amaze my eyes and you never stop making haunting images. You sir, are a true artist. Each image tells a thousand stories of your world.
Have you seen or read anything by Neil Gaiman? If you haven't, I suspect you would like it: It's probably your cup of tea. If not, I recommend it. Have you seen MirrorMask? I see similarities here, but I want you to know, this is only a complement by way of comparison: your stuff is unique. It seems there is a story to be told in each picture. That its to say, each piece appears to be more than the sum of it's parts. Bravo.
Thanks Tom, great compliment from you.
bhanu, I can always count on you. You have great taste.
Klaw, Pretty much read everything Gaiman and I show Mirror Mask to my students almost every semester. In fact looks like I'll be in a show with Dave McKean next year. Thanks for the kind words.
I was honored to be invited to participate in MicroVisions. Twelve artists each do a small, 5" x 7", painting to be auctioned off benefitting the Society of Illustrators, NY student scholarship fund. It is organized each year by Irene Gallo, art director at Tor, Forge & Starscapes Books, and Dan Dos Santos, artist. There is an incredible list of artists participating. Check out the links for details.
