“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

"BEFORE YOU SLEEP... "_sketch






"...let me kiss your eyes shut - so you'll dream of me. Let me kiss your lips rose - so you'll know how much I care for you. Let me touch your hair soft - so you'll feel safe. And last, let me kiss the dimple on your cheek - in hopes that I'll see you smile again tomorrow morning."

These pieces show a lot of great character and emotion. I think I understand why this is getting to be more fulfilling for you than the tights stuff.

You know whats great about this one, is that its something that i do a lot, i put my wife to sleep, and then go off and draw. I can tell that Eric experiences this in some form too, dope stuff, very great capturing the mood.

The Big Red One said...

Really intriguing stuff, man. Both sweet and melancholy. Beautifully drawn of course. I figure this guy is either some midnight avenging crime fighter... or an artist. probably the latter, although both lead solitary double lives that go on while those we care about dream.

Eric,
I love how you have inked the last one, especially the shirt.
These illustrations are full of love!
