Enlightenment V

“Enlightenment V,” ink on paper, 33cm x 22cm, 2015.

Here I go, drawing with ink again, my old favorite media. “Enlightenment V” is finally bringing Buddha and Jesus together, after I’ve represented them in a separate drawing and painting. I’ve had this idea before my well informed artistic child enlightened me about “Saint Oniisan” or “Saints Young Men” manga and anime. Now I’m a big fan of “Saint Oniisan.”

Crucifixion II

Crucifixion II
“Crucifixion II,” digital drawing, 2015.

Companion image to “Enlightenment IV.” Since the theme of this image is crucifixion, it only made sense for me to draw it in the same style as my M.A. art thesis “brokenFixed,” which I’ve based upon images of crucifixion and resurrection. I haven’t been drawing in this style in years, and this is the first drawing in this style I’ve created digitally, not with pen and ink. More to come!
