_11x14”_$27_13x17”_$35__ The_Shire, A Hobbit House' Illustration inspired by J.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit'. Completed in 2009. The stories Tolkien created have influenced and inspired me since childhood. Like many others I dream of living in a hobbit hole of my own someday. This is my vision of what it would be like... Fantasy mixed media artwork using stock photography overlaid with many weeks of painting. If you would like to learn more about my process please visit my website:
Yoko Ono A Hole, 2009 This is the glass from The Dakota, the night John Lennon was shot. The concept behind this artwork is that if you stand at it face on, you are the murderer. If you stand behind it, you are the victim. That just blew my mind.
