A Balanced Misconception / Graphite and Pen & Ink on Arches
Wednesday, July 3, 2013
The awesome members of the band Me Equals You allowed me complete creative freedom for their latest album Respice Finem. The album covers a complex variety of emotions and relationships between morality and the individuals experiences growing up with high contrast belief systems. So it was important for me to interpret a feeling of being torn and a sensation of feeling trapped with in someones surroundings, but at the same time the album is about the acceptance of reason and the freedom that it has the possibility of bringing into a persons life. So the main subject is shown infested with a tumorous growth that resembles the foliage it emerged from, symbolizing two very different places in life, and that even once someone has escaped, the roots from past experiences are still highly present and visible. Hope you enjoy viewing these drawings as much as I did creating them.
