GUARDIAN OF THE JUNGLE
The tiger is celebrated in many mythologies as the guardian and protector of the forest. He is thought of as a mighty king with the power to heal, fight dragons, create rain, and keep children safe from nightmares. This piece was created for Light Grey Art Lab's Macro&Micro show celebrating the intricacies of our world - everything from microscopic minerals to kings of the jungle. This 13"x16" print is available for purchase on Light Grey Art Lab's website for a limited time.
CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT
Temporary tattoos - "Beautiful Forever" - a show held at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, MN featuring the artwork of 40 artists-each creating their own temporarry tattoo flash sheet. I was inspired to make these beautiful bat tatts after hearing a quote from Dracula- "Listen to them, children of the night, what music they make" (Dracula was actually referring to the (were)wolves in the movie but hey, i think bats are awesome children of the night). Also, bats are usually thought of as being a bit creepy, so i made these super cheery and colorful! all tattoos are available for purchase at lightgreyartlab.com
The Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest spiral galaxy to the Milky Way. It gets its name from the area of the sky in which it appears, the constellation of Andromeda - which was named after the mythological princess Andromeda. Our galaxy is projected to collide with Andromeda in approximately 4 billion years.
"Peering deep into the heart of the Andromeda Galaxy, the Hubble Space Telescope found a pair of bright objects at the center, orbiting the dark monster that is a black hole up to 230 million times heftier than our sun. One of the glowing objects within the center of Andromeda, known as Messier 31 (M31) is thought by astronomers to be a dense and compact star cluster. the other object is a fainter disc-shaped, spiraling hot gas swirling around the gravitational sinkhole of the black hole."
