In a previous post I’d mentioned how I had a dream about a decrepit old shark, covered in plants and moss. I thought I’d turn that into an illustration while also applying more watercolor to the drawing before doing the photoshop compilation.
This painting is from a suburbia series. They’re bushes with snow on a “front yard” next to the driveway of a house in Pittsburgh. The house is up there, but not in the picture. To me, these manicured shrubs are a wonderful example of how each person has their own way of bringing a little nature into their lives.
The folks at The Art Bureau have been kind enough to show some of my work in their online gallery: www.theartbureau.org. I created the piece above for a black and white numeric calendar they’re putting together, which by the way has a few available spots if any illustrators or designers out there are interested.
