Jazz Masters Series

This is a promo piece I did last summer. The art shown are of 'straight-ahead', ledgendary jazz figures which I produced as digital art prints, and currently selling.

SHIVA

This is my 'take' on the Hindu deity, Shiva, the third deity of the Hindu triad of great gods, the Trimurti. Shiva is called the Destroyer (of evil), but has also the aspect of regeneration. As destroyer he is dark and terrible, appearing as a naked ascetic accompanied by a train of hideous demons, encircled with serpents and necklaces of skulls. As auspicious and reproductive power, he is worshipped in the form of the shivling or shiva linga (lingam). Also known as ‘Lord of the Dance’.

Tubezoid: A "Virtual" Sculpture

"Tubezoid" is an experiment in 'virtual' art sculpture, which is art composed with 3D software and videographed. Ever since the advent of virtual enabling software, architects, engineers, and some sculpturers, use this technology to bring life and 'immediacy' to their ideas as a way of winning over their respective clients. I believe this same technology can service visual and graphic design artists as well; not so much as serving as a paradigm for the actual product that is to come, but as the actual work itself!

"The Twelve Gates of Time"

The "Twelves Gates of Time" was first conceived as "static" art piece created with Bryce. After reproducing it in various textures and backgrounds, I wanted to see it animated as a gateway to different worlds. This video strives to do just that.
