This is a series of pen and ink drawings called Macabre Series 1 – Blood, Skulls, and Paranoia. Each drawing was sketched to stand on its own, but there is a theme in the style, subject matter, and overall feeling of each artwork. Deep black shadows and abstract designs mix with grey and red gradients to create symbols and images that typically represent death, invoke fear, and suggest an undercurrent of foreboding. Some of these elements specifically include skulls, ghosts, insects, unusual creatures, red coloring for blood, and abstract distorted faces. Each drawing is approximately 4″ x 6″, and each artwork was drawn and painted in 2008 with pen, ink, marker, and watercolor mediums.
