Red paper

I did this piece last summer .I never really tried inking on colored paper before. I'm not sure that I liked it. I had a problem with the texture itself and durability of the paper, I'm experimenting with coloring my own paper.

Cannon II

The cannon is another concept for the Divine Technology. I'm planning on setting it in a larger siege scene. Taking place outside of Babylon.

Red Giant

To me Red Giant represents an end of a civilization.

I really wore my self out on this ink. It grew quickly in complexity- and I was working very fast on it with only one study for guidance.

Drawing three big inks in a row exhausted my mind and hand and it took me a while to start another large ink. Maybe that's why The Bath's ink is coming along so slow.


Diadochoi- that is the Greek name for Alexander's generals, that, after his death, carved up his empire into three major parts. On the right is Ptolemy holding the tomb of Alexander.

I did this ink at like 4:00 am after I got back from the studio.

I don't know what got into me I just put Philip Glass cd on- and inked away.

Notes from the Pavilion

In-close civilizations grow quickly in bizarreness an eccentricity of social ways- So do artists both can be beautifully inviting or a nightmare one wants to get away from.

We live in the age of glorified toy makers ,you cannot judge a civilization on it's toys- what of science and philosophy and all those things that make us more than animals.
After all my dog Shady has toys of her own. Besides our resemblance to dog-like behavior, is uncomfortably close enough.

Nietzsche was crazy, realistically speaking however our concept of Normal is still under debate.
We like convenience.

On torture and humiliation- As the woman gives pain and humiliation, in her eyes there is a look of love & compassion- She says" Whatever gets you off, honey"

DemiUrge aka Vega

DemiUrge is believed to be a deity responsible for the creation of the physical universe. The concept of DemiUrge exists in many religions and philosophies. I personally see DemiUrge as a "false god" or rather a being that took advantage of it's divine power, or as I've called it Divine Technology. Basically touching up our genetic code, treating sentient life for it's own agenda and self glorification. I also find it interesting the Nietzsche had Zarathustra (in Thus Spoke Zarathustra) come down from the mountain and says "god is dead." Which in existentialism philosophy is a declaration that god never existed. But from an agnostic philosophy, if DemiUrge is a false god then it just means it is his passing, and perhaps we are left to ourselves. Anyway I'm developing more conceptual art for my idea of the Divine Technology.

Moment on the Past

2005- I made those inks when I came back from Poland- and at the end of my years in New York. From seeing Poland again after many years I wanted to express the things I saw -remnants of the Nazi occupation to the Warsaw Uprising.

As with some things in life and expression - I realized I was incapable of expressing the feeling and ideas I wanted to capture.

Coming back to Philay after 3 years in Manhattan I had (and still have) a lot of black clouds.

I found comfort in something familiar that suited my dark mood- The Egyptian Book of the Dead. So from reading ancient history books , I began to develop my own symbolism.


Welcome to my Blog , dear bloger.
The reason for its existense is simple a place where I can show my Ink work and drowings.
As the title of the Blog suggests.
I hope that people will find my obsessions on paper at the least amusing.
