Many times I've been told that my figures look like alien men eating women with a certain mystical allure that oozes power and sex appeal. I don't know if that is true. I have always seen my sketches as a slight extension of my personality. An alter ego, if I can put it like that.
Just to get back to this series of illustrations, the idea was simplicity yet expressive. I chose to work with very common mediums, in this case a regular office ball point pen and photocopy paper. I was amazed at the results as they came out looking like a cross between the traditional stick drawings that you'll often see in curio African paintings at the flea market and a some what high fashion drawing. I have managed to produce a few of these and now I am short of Ideas as what to do with them. I was thinking maybe a book of some sort. What do you think? Throw me a few ideas. I would love to publish these.
