View Full Version : Imaginary Landscape

here is an abstracted version of a gigantic sculpture of an airplane. i drew this outside the indianapolis museum of art. i wish i could have made this image bigger because there is so much intricate detail going on in the charcoal lines. but there is a size limit on these forums so i guess this will have to do.

You can always post some detail shots, Cabal. Just zoom in on some areas and let us have a look-see http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

yep crop off a small bit and show us the detail. I see the Bosch influence here.

very well done in all respects.
reminds me of Evil Dr. Seuss Airlines
I'm enjoying the ride.

what is it that makes this look dr suess?

Definitely Bosch-Seuss: Bosch content and structure; Seuss figures. But entirely unique in its own way. And entirely way cool.

Don't sweat the Seuss reference. It wasn't meant with ill intent. The quirkiness would be the similarity, not suggesting that it wasn't original. Hope I didn't pop your bubble, ground your aircraft, whatever. It's a good piece, I like it very much.

Oh no! Quite the opposite! I find it a compliment to be compared to Suess! Actually apart from the fact that i would love to be an original artist i don't think i'll ever escape the influence artists like Dr Suess and Hieronymus Bosch have on me. It's over powering and i must follow in kind. My visions are forced constructions full of wild landscapes with infinite intricate abominations, mechanical deviations and monstrous elaborations.

also let me clarify the reason i was asking what it was that connected my work with suess was that i was trying to see from another person's perspective the similarities between the drawing and the suess style.
