|My ‘Primitives’ series is created in the spirit of depicting creatures with a primitive artistic style. Hard organic lines with bold colors, and detailed dots to create skeletons.
Some details of the creatures are made up while still following the correct anatomy of the animal. This is much like the way that the Australian Aboriginals and Aztec people depicted the deities or monsters in their world, and what really makes these pieces a joy to create.
My day to day work is creating highly technical pieces of 21st century life. Maps, machinery, scientific renderings, etc...
But my ‘Primitives’ series is a passion, as it gets me away from current civilization and expresses my vision of what I would like the world and its creatures to be.
