I’m working on 40 new, hand-painted paper shooting targets for “Bulletproof” -
Opening Sat, Sept 20th at Low Gallery in San Diego, CA.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the email preview list (put “targets” in the subject line.)
I’ve essentially moved on from this type of work, but it’s fun to hammer one out every once in a while.
I am really, really, REALLY excited to show this to you. It’s been a long time coming.
My awesome friend Rachel of Rachel Griel Art (who does fantastic embroidery-based art by the way, go follow her!) commissioned me to do a black and white illustration of one of her (and my) favorite excerpts from Lord of the Rings:
"Then at last, to keep himself awake, he crawled from the hiding-place and looked out. The land seemed full of creaking and cracking and sly noises, but there was no sound of voice or of foot. Far above the Ephel Dúath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tower high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”
—J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, “The Land of Shadow”
Illustrating anything regarding Tolkien is one of the most intimidating things you can do EVER, but I’m really happy with this piece and it sounds like she is too. Yay! :D
