Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Paper and dip pen on Paper.

Drawing with dip pen and ink is an
archaic technique of drawing dating back to the reed pens of 400 BC.
My own hands serve as the models and the reason they became
a building block of my drawings is because of their accessibility - being
constantly present and available.

I spent over a decade as an artist in the Silicon Valley,
working for video games and franchises like Star Wars, Iron Man, X-Men
and Shrek. This type of commercial work involved mainly working in a three
dimensional space on the computer and my drawings carry over that
three dimensional play, along with various geometric bodies and occasional
Star Wars allusions like the Darth Vader helmet. Darth Vader used to be very close
to me, appearing on my screen on a daily basis while I worked at Lucasfilm.
He is family and the perfect villain.

The drawings are allegories of the daily battles of
the ideal and the flawed, good and evil.
