Sloth and Mushrooms is part of a large body of paintings that use rare and distinct fauna as actors in allegories about optimism, perseverance, and hope in the face of a confusing world and the predators of late-stage capitalism. This series was started in the Winter of 2021 when our entire household was stuck at home because of COVID.
This was drawn with Micron technical pens and Faber Castell brush markers on a sheet of 11″ x 15″ watercolor paper. Acrylics were then used to layer color over the drawing until it was richly colored in a way that couldn’t be replicated digitally. I developed this process over the last twenty years, where I learned that thin layers of color create a much more vibrant “glow” than a single thinker layer of paint.
This is a giant, high-quality jpeg (600dpi) that can be blown up and projected to a gigantic size or printed at double the actual size (22″ x 28″)
This is a limited edition NFT; I will sell no more than 20 of them. Buyers of the NFT will unlock a bonus hi-res line art version of the sloth before any color was added.
