Hello. I am so happy that I can finally launch this project today and share it with you! It has been in the works for almost exactly a year and was born out of my innate need to create. I was feeling burnt out by the quick turnaround, heavily art directed work that is required of me a lot of the time. I love what I get to do as an illustrator but I really needed to feed my creative soul. Sometimes you need just need to make stuff for the sake of making stuff. It can't be work all of the time. If you are a creative, you will know what I am talking about. So without further ado, let me introduce my fine art drawing series, CARNIVORE.
I have always been fascinated by wildlife and how animals live and survive in the world. Hunt or be hunted. This body of work is about those creatures who hunt. Nature is beautiful and it is brutal. And everyone needs to eat.
Each animal in this series has been meticulously researched and drawn as close to life-size as possible. No details have been spared and some of the smaller drawings have been painstakingly created with the use of a magnifying lens.
The drawings have been professionally scanned by the historic Athenaeum of Philadelphia on their Cruse Scanner to capture every detail down to the finest hair in order to produce a print as close to the original work as possible.
All printing is done on archival Hahnemuhle photo rag paper by Stockbridge Fine Art in Philadelphia PA, specialists in the production of custom fine art prints for museums and galleries worldwide.
A very special thanks to Brian at PRIMER for helping with the set up of my website and for always being supportive of the work that I do. THANK YOU!
