New Media: Digital on Paper.
"He's Ready" is the companion piece to "She's Ready". Intended as a supportive piece, the gentleman is depicted beginning his journey armed with the tools he'll need for whatever RESISTANCE, he might encounter....books for knowledge, a loyal hound for protection and a bugle for a call to action.
In the late 1990s, Digital Art had become a recognizable influence in the mainstream art world. Studying the new avant-garde art form, I began manipulating images to create magical scenarios with a timeless quality. I draw my artistic influences from vintage advertising art, antique tintype photography and the surrealist art movement. I first introduced my Story Prints as whimsical allegories with familiar themes. Subjects like courage, wisdom and the longing to ‘fit in’ are all grist for the mill. Combining antique imagery with a contemporary surrealistic palette lends the composition an-other-worldly quality that is both modern and ancient. I print on Metallic Pearlescent Archival paper to give it that antique, tintype feel. The medium perfectly mirrors the emotional tone of the image!
