Ophelia

I’ve not been doing much art lately, mostly due to artists block, but here’s a doodle I worked on over the last two weeks or so. I chose the title ‘Ophelia’ partially based on Zella Day’s “Sweet Ophelia” which inspired the initial concept, but also Bill’s existential masterpiece ‘Hamlet.’ The image has current social issuesContinue reading “Ophelia”

Nature – Victim

So I throw all these words out to explain my #art but really, it comes down to mood as the #artwork progresses. This was first focused on #hair – I am not apologetic for objectifying luscious locks – then it moved into the #goth #vampire realm ( #notsorry ) and then setting back into #natureContinue reading “Nature – Victim”

A Question of Limits

A legitimate comment sparked this post. I don’t know if the person was just being a social media denizen (where the goal is to tear down) or knew that I always create a scene for my art, with multiple angles worthy of expression to the lens, and decided to coax out another angle from me.Continue reading “A Question of Limits”

The Tiger of Xanadu

So Coleridge’s poem Kubla Khan (1797) envisioned a pleasure palace with dark undertones. The work was totally influenced by an Opium high. Opium, the Black Tiger, was heavily traded in China, the Tiger of the East. But enough history and Literature – this digital artwork is also heavily influenced by the 1980 movie Xanadu, withContinue reading “The Tiger of Xanadu”

Butterfly on a Wheel

This digital art (because what else would it be) started because I was listening to the song of the same name by the Mission UK, off their Carved in Sand Album. Extrapolating from there, I looked up the idiom, butterfly on a wheel, and found that it originated from Alexander Pope’s 1735 poem “Epistle toContinue reading “Butterfly on a Wheel”

State of the Arts

A doodle in reaction to the current environment for artists. The pandemic thew the community for a loop. It was already under pressure prior to the plague – even being voted the most useless occupation – though you need art to sell products and live in a semi-decent world. Post-pandemic? It will survive, the richContinue reading “State of the Arts”

Full Rehearsal

This started as on of the typical full gymnast / ballerina poses to try and box the photo. I then realized I needed another dancer to do that. That worked but it was boring. Then as I was going through the color coordination of the outfits, I was, like, “what if I took the floorContinue reading “Full Rehearsal”
