ABC’s of Aquatic disaster, a series in progress

The structure of the alphabet is a great way to begin fleshing out a series and researching the sea monsters is interesting.

For the Iku-Turso, I added the Finnish submarine from WWII with the same name.

As I learned about the ocean, I found out about the terrible jelly fish problem. I thought for Ceto they would make a beautiful glow in her underwater nursery.

The Hydra is famous but I didn’t know that one of it’s defenses is it’s stinky. If you cut off one of it’s heads, it smells terrible. Smell is a sense that we miss too often in telling legends. I painted the Hydra on a beautiful day on an island before it’s gruesome end.

I have already begun a series of monster paintings where I was imagining Godzilla’s away from the classic movie. I love the image of him coming home from work after a successful day of destruction.

rabbit drawings

When asked to explain my Rabbit drawings, I usually say, ” If the VelveteenĀ  Rabbit had a second career in Ballet. I keep the story of the ballet, take away the athlete dancer and replace him with the soft rabbit figure. The drawing follows the humor, grace and complexity expressed in movement using the rabbit’s volume and gesture.”

I find this series a pleasure to work on. I am open to doing commission work in this series.

Each Rabbit Drawing is 18″x24″ unframed and available for $60.00.
