MOBY-DICK, Page 026

Reminiscent of some of Jasper Johns' work from '80s and before (like Diver for instance)

That is an absolutely incredible compliment Keith, thank you. I am absolutely certain that so much of what I've seen and soaked in over the years of visiting museums and looking at art (in books as well) has some deep and almost subconscious influence on these images. I have nothing but awe and admiration for Johns, Jim Dine, Cy Twombly, and so many others and it is humbling and uplifting to see some of that reflected in my work. Again, thank you.

Haunting, especially the eyes. And I love the way the edges fade...

The beauty of using nontraditional art materials Brandon. Spraypaint, ballpoint pens and cheap acrylic paint do the trick.
