2017

It's a bit late to wish everyone a new year. And living in the states, I think we are all calming down from being floored by our 2016 presidential election results. Here I am -- March 2017.

So far:
I lost a friend (he died) and I'm still coping.
Lance has been ill.
The audience for Regarding Comic keeps growing!


That pretty much sums it all up.

NEW ART
This piece was a new medium for me: Dura Lar and ink. The project started with a graphite drawing on the front -- the ink is applied to the back. I did some "tweaking" on the graphite side ...
But here it is!

THE HANGED MAN


That is an Irish Hare on a hook. It is reminiscent of classic "vulgar" nature paintings. I was instructed to research The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (by a mentor).

The symbolism is dealing with death; lots and lots of death. One can't ignore the fact the rabbit is "nailed to a tree." That was purely subconscious Christian (or Nordic) symbolism on my part. I was focusing on drawing an apple tree ...

Conscious Symbols
APPLE TREE: Remembrance
MEAT HOOK: Violence, against the will, unnatural, untimely death
IRISH HARE: Associated with moon deities - signifies rebirth/resurrection.
APPLE BLOSSOM: Love, healing and immortality / Spring
WHITE RABBIT: The Spirit, something mystical, the afterlife

If you see/feel anything else, I would LOVE to hear from you!

  1. This is so beautiful. Incredibly sad, but beautiful. Great job on this. Would it be possible to purchase this in canvas art, I wonder..? Regardless, very moving piece. It really struck a chord with me. Thank you for your art.

  2. I hope Lance gets better! Whenever Shadow(my Lop) gets ill, be it GI stasis or even a bit if gas, I always freak a little.

  4. Same here because since working with a dissertation writing services company, I could not find time to wish you. However, although this is month of April in 2017 but still, I would like to wish you happy new year and wish you best of luck for things that you want to achieve.

  5. I can not understand what scares me in this picture, for me it looks like something eerie, but at the same time it's all very talented.

  6. The word infant infers pictures of adorableness and sweetness. An infant is the wellspring of euphoria for surrounding him or her. One most likely stays extremely occupied with a child for organization. Be that as it may, keeping the infant occupied, thusly, ends up being a dubious issue. Infant toys are one of the most straightforward approaches to keep an infant occupied and upbeat. An infant toy bids to children and they stay possessed with these toys, without a nurture the whole world. An infant toy is a profoundly fundamental thing which is required to keep the infant locked in. they are accessible in a tremendous assortment. kids toys in pakistan
