The inspiration for this came when the lovely forested areas around my home came crashing down because of greedy humanity looking to make another buck.
Ive grown up in the country my entire life; picturesque golden hills, ethereal forested groves, sun-dappled expanses of grass and the like were a part of my every day life here where I live..Watching those trees disappear daily made me think of not only my area, but of how, across the entire world, humans are destroying the earth in so many different ways...and it kills me to see it taken away, to know that the habitats for so many animals are being destroyed.. That lovely, years old trees are being ripped to shreds and bushes burned.. That garbage and junk and man-made products and chemicals are poisoning this earth...and it made me realize:

Human-kind is Mother Nature's very own special brand of Cancer.

And like with cancer, we dont have a cure yet, and hell, we probably cant fix all the damage weve caused to this planet anyway...but we have to hope and try and keep fighting to save this Earth from ourselves.

Sorry for the passionate (and long) speech, but some things need passion, and sometimes you just need some visual and verbal inspiration to help make others feel that passion too.

As for the art itself, its done with charcoal and ink/watercolors. The ribbon shaped in the cancer symbol was actually completely unintentional..I didnt realize the shape it made til I had the first layer of red on..but when I realized it, it was one of those moments where everything seemed to come full circle and just felt right. This piece was for my Drawing 2 class, but it is an idea that I have had in the back of my mind for years..it just took some (unfortunate) re-inspiration from the deforestation to come to fruition. I even found some old (horribly drawn) sketches of the idea from when I was young, but only recently have I developed the ability to be able to get my idea across properly..even with that said, I think in the future I would really love to revisit the concept.

Second one of my heavily Zeld-inspired landscapes from 2008. This one could almost be called fanart. I love these open-air temple areals... want one, too!

The last picture in this series. The same inspiration as in the others, though I don't think that anyone except myself would see the connection to Zelda-games :)
Didn't come out aus I wanted it to be, but I'm glad I have tried.

Media are acrylics, black and white ink on coloured cardboard. Size is A3.

Some of my work for the Alphabet of Manliness Special Extended Edition. The Shark Punch, or "Chumming the Waters" was a fun piece to work on. It's one of three full color pinups in the back of the book. Check it out, where ever books are sold.

I apologize for the low res image, but the publisher owns it and doesn't want high quality copies on the internet.

More to come.

Some art class thing. Assignment was to create something using a variety of marks, so I combined the usual pencilwork with calligraphy ink and drew a clouded leopard. They only gave us one studio session from blank page to finished work, so I didn't really have time to plan anything out ^^;

I used photoshop to stitch the scans. Unfortunately I couldn't get the scans right so it's a bit off from the real work. The pink colours are more of a purple in real life.

From Wiki:

Marzanna
is a Slavic goddess associated with death, winter and nightmares. Some sources equate her with the Latvian goddess Mara, who takes a person's body after their death.
It concerns the "drowning of Marzanna," a large figure of a woman made from various rags and bits of clothing which is thrown into a river on the first day of the spring calendar. Along the way, she is dipped into every puddle and pond ... Very often she is burned along with herbs before being drowned and a twin custom is to decorate a pine tree with flowers and colored baubles to be carried through the village by the girls. There are of course many superstitions associated with the ceremony: you can't touch Marzanna once she's in the water, you can't look back at her, and if you fall on your way home you're in big trouble. One, or a combination of any of these can bring the usual dose of sickness and plague.
—Tom Galvin, "Drowning Your Sorrows in Spring", Warsaw Voice 13.544, March 28, 1999

Dodola (Perperuna )According to some interpretations, she is the Slavic goddess of rain. Slavs believed that when Dodola milks her heavenly cows, the clouds, it rains on earth. Each spring Dodola is said to fly over woods and fields, and spread vernal greenery, decorating the trees with blossoms.
