I have been wanting to go back to my dark themed art for a while now,but seeing how I am an "impulsive artist" you can't really rush feelings before there time,if they come back at all. I've been having this odd sense lately to kind of expand back on the darker side of my art. For now I will say goodbye to my hippie days, but not before finishing one last drawing as a send off to my happy-go-lucky state of my mind I was residing in for quite sometime now.
My somewhat darker art has always been more "free ranged" and more personal visualizing certain journeys compared to the more straight forward "colorful" art. Back in my more "angst-y" teenage years that style of art was always prominent,ever present and like a curse almost draining. The need to project every kind of confusion,anger,even hidden sexual frustrations and different levels of jealousy would plague me constantly. By writing this,one could already shape an idea of what the art will look like.
The difference this time is that I'm not in a lost place,but rather harnessing those thoughts and feelings and like a finely craft mannequin making it put on a show. A show with a story to tell like Dante Alighieri who would observe and tell a tale of all the things he would see and experience in the underworld. So for those of you who are still with me,take my hand and lets go through a journey of the carnal,the twisted,and the macabre.
I would also like to give a shout out for everyone who gave much love to the piece "Godeater",I wasn't really expecting it to get much faves or eyes for that matter. For those who have interest in seeing it I shall post a link below .
"Art,as far as it is able,follows nature,as a pupil imitates his master;thus your art must be ,as it were,God's grandchild."- Dante Alighieri
