This series of paintings and illustrations depict an indistinct time in the future of man and nature, on Earth. Nature is at odds with the overabundance of man’s creations. Weather patterns have reshaped while planetary regions have cooled and become frozen. Whole areas flooded while others have scorched under the relentless sun. Nonetheless the population of humans continued to expand, developing new hybridized housing for its swollen society on both water and land. In response to this overgrowth, nature’s crippled remnants began to retaliate and reclaim their territory.
In connection with the "Territory, Reclaimed" painting series
Ink & colored pencil
In the black & white ink drawings below, you can see the origins of the mechanics and creature of the Baltimore Monster series, as well as a connection to other themes in older and later work.
Highlights from Woodblock series
This series was designed to compliment the Territory, Reclaimed series, but more closely reflect the subject matter in my more current work. A world, where robots, machines and creatures discover and explore. These were a limited run, of only around 50 total. These are the size of a pack of cigarettes to dispense in Art-o-Mats, but sold before they ever made it to the Art-o-mat.
