About the Piece:
Done for The Book of Night, Perseid Publishing, this particular piece was an illustration for the poem The Crows of Las Cruces by Kurt Newman. This may sound terrible, but I can't even remember what the poem was about. As I began reading it, I saw imagery of a black shapeless mass, moving, pulsating, and growing as it moves toward the viewer. As the shape gets closer, things begin coming into focus: beaks, talons, feathers, and wings. And all too soon, you realize that the shape of death is upon you, and it is too late.
About the Artist:
Paul and his brother Michael opened Aradani Studios in 2002, selling both their artwork and costuming as they travelled all across the US. Paul’s medium of choice is charcoal, a passion he discovered in college. He loves the fluidity of it, the ease of moving it across the page with a simple gesture, and on the flipside, the challenge of it, such a simple gesture can also erase hours of painstaking detail. Paul’s work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare. He currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he, his brother, and sister continue to expand and build their elf ear empire.
