I've been rethinking my approach on surrealism, and reconstructing the tools I use to pursue creativity. My previous surreal works had been about characters tangled up in difficult situations, while this new drawing is about hope and guidance. The characters in this piece are more like gargoyles than flawed characters, silent protectors staring in from an unseen world. To me, there is an ancient power in them. Prehistoric, or even beyond time entirely.
The drawing is called "Light Her Thoughts". It's larger than any drawings that I've done before, 16.5" x 23". I'm planning on doing a fairly large oil painting of it sometime in the future.
