I decided to produce series of portraiture pieces to scrutinize my curiosity of people’s faces as I think each tell a story of their own. I chose to illustrate a set of literature figures, as writers have the tendency to carry a certain haggardness and cynicism of the world on their faces, which are often reflected in their words..."

Alfred Steiner's Illustrative Surgery

Illustration // Thursday, August 02, 2012
'In his watercolour and pen work, artist Alred Steiner becomes a sick and twisted surgeon, turning all manner of body parts, animals and objects - such as space craft, turds, strawberries and camels - into beautiful but rather disturbing renderings of memorable and famous cartoon characters such.

Amazing Charcoal Rope Series

Illustration // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
'I chose imagery of knotted or twisted rope to help me describe the felt but unexpressed visceral world of the mind/body. These surrogate “bodies” seemed fitting metaphors for the tension, frayed nerves and entanglements that we inevitably experience as human beings. Use of distortion and exaggerated scale help evoke less pedestrian associations with my subject while enticing viewers to linger with the sensual qualities of surface and medium.' - Huguette Despault
