NC's Shadow

Hi guys. This was a little spur of the moment study I did while sketching out my submission to the Autumn Society's 8-Bit and Beyond show. The theme is, of course, video games and I immediately jumped at the chance to do something from my favorite game of all time, Shadow of the Colossus. It's a beautiful, mysterious, and atmospheric adventure and this seemed like a pretty obvious parody. If another artist has done the same thing, I'd love to know- I had a sinking feeling I wasn't the first to put these two things together. Otherwise hope you like it, and enjoy some purple shadows. Thanks!

New Personal Work

It Flew at Sunset, 14.5 x 19.5", pencil/ink/digital

The Wreck, 4.25 x 7.5", Ink on Rives BFK

These are two recent pieces completed for my show in Philadelphia. The ink piece is one that I'm especially interested in, because it's a medium I'm just starting to wrestle with. I've long admired people who use it to create magnificent images; artists like Jeff Smith, Paul Pope, etc. The other piece is more cathartic than anything else- the last finished illustration I created and it's birds, figurative work, clouds, and swirls. Everything I love drawing.

I've been posting a lot of information about my upcoming show with SM Vidaurri, and I'm proud to say that the opening is fast approaching. There will be a small reception at Chapterhouse on Friday July 10th, from 6-9pm. I'm looking forward to relaxing with a nice cup of coffee on a beautiful Philadelphia evening. Come on out to enjoy some great art.
