Ladies and Gentlemen...



I give you...The Japanese Creation Myth (in three parts)

I cannot tell you what a great feeling it is to be done with this piece. It has devoured my time and my life and probably my health as well, but it is finished! Hurrah!
This piece has undergone some many changes and false starts. See here for an earlier sketch. I took a good look at the sketch at that stage and decided that there was alot of unnecessary space in it, so I cut it down to the essential parts. I didn't want the viewer to feel overwhelmed by it, so I figured it would work best a triptych, since there was so much detail and things flying around. I'm really quite glad that I could end school on a very positive note, looking forward to seeing this printed nice and big for the MICA Commencement show. I will now catch up on some sleep.

Enjoy.

Holy Jesus this turned out awesome. When are you and Megan leaving forever? I'm trying to get a print from both of you before you book it. Likely a print of this sucker.

I'd have to agree. This looks great! I want to see it even closer--does the lady have veins popping out everywhere??

....And I would also like a print exchange..
