Big on concept. Small on content.

I study linguistics, language, and psychology but I'm not sure what to do with what I'm learning. I hope one day to produce art that people love but I'm casual about production.

I love narrative art (comic books, illustrations and that) and I write and draw some of my more transgressional stuff under an alias. If you see something of mine here on deviantart marked as adult, think "Georgia O'Keeffe"; not "Larry Flynt".


More later ...
I hope to produce an image that so accurately represents the concept and scene in my head that others will identify them without my verbal explanation.

Some more -- uh -- infrastructure work. This kind of art, both toon-style stills and animation, is still non-intuitive for me. I'm working on it, though.

I quite like the neo-impressionististic tones and attributes in your faces and figures. I'll take more time and care viewing more of your gallery later.

Neo-impressionistic ? What do you mean ?

Thank you very much for the kind words :hug:

Impressionism and neo-impressionism are nineteenth-century artistic movements that are actually defined by certain techniques of applying paint to a canvas. I don't mean to suggest that you've employed that technique and instead mean that the modernist-impressionist qualities of your works look more like the works of the neo-impressionists than that of the impressionists. Your work is lovely without any classification, though.

A favor to myself, really -- I'm always looking for atypical figure studies. You're welcome, all the same, though.
