A lot of my recent work has been heavily influenced by what I've been learning and experiencing both practicing and receiving Polarity work. After giving me a session one class, my friend described getting a sense of me sitting calmly in the middle of a tumultuous lake which strongly resonated with a lot of what I had experienced in my meditations throughout the session. Almost immediately I had an idea of what I needed to do. I quickly drew out a general sketch of my idea, and then took the next few days adding the outlines and refining it a little. I honestly couldn't be happier with how it turned out, and I even have an idea now for another series, so keep your eyes peeled.
Most of the Thatcher Illusion illustrations I've done, at least so far, have been relatively small. For some reason I was inspired to do a larger piece and so over the course of a couple sound healing hours over Zoom with our friend Robin I drew up this little doozy. This was a lot of fun to work on and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Better late than never I suppose...a lot has changed since my last post in October but I've still been keeping busy with school and art both. One thing I've done recently is a series of "Thatcher Illusions". I got an optical illusion book from my grandparents years and years ago and it had some illustrations that were either by Rex Whistler, or strongly inspired by him. I've re-created a couple Rex Whistler illustrations over the years but this is my first shot at trying some more original designs. It's hard to say for sure, but I think I started this series around November or December or so.
Thanks for visiting my Ardt Blog. You may see a few colors pop up here and there as you scroll down through my work, but for the most part I tend to do mostly pen & ink and pencil illustrations. I'm always coming up with various projects for myself to work on so you'll see a fairly decent variety of subjects. Please reach out to me through the contact page if you're interested in purchasing a print of anything you happen to like or for any commission inquiries if there's something specific you'd like to see.
