Feeling Kinda Blue – The Hollow Ones #36

I let the feeling wash over me, through me, and out of me. It went right to the paper and I was left with a feeling of joy. This is what blues music dies for me too. I acknowledge the emotions of the medium and let it wash away the sadness. What is left is … Continue reading Feeling Kinda Blue – The Hollow Ones #36

Bossa Nova Love – The Hollow Ones #34

Ok, so I think I still have more of these in me. I did this one spontaneously a few days ago. My wife has been dancing around the house and making me and my daughter giggle. The house has been full of music and love. I don't know if I unconsciously chose to keep the … Continue reading Bossa Nova Love – The Hollow Ones #34

I've drawn her with almost no contour and decided to catch her as she's turning in profile, where she might just disappear. For more of my drawings please visit … Continue reading Beauty is Two Dimensional

And Then She Walked In…

I was doing a little research on some abstract cubism and came across a bunch of loosely figurative paintings. I was amazed at the expressiveness they offered. I was immediately drawn in to the possible stories the figures were living and enjoyed them extensively. The more minimalist ones offered the greatest room for me to … Continue reading And Then She Walked In…

The Last Hollow Men: The History: Here’s my part of the story. Tell me what you see and write the next chapter… Back in the 80s, following the release of Pink Floyd the Wall, I started seeing these images repeating in literature, film, and painting... oddly I found these nihilistic sentiments repeated in earlier works … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #99: The Last Hollow Men
