About the Piece:
A few years ago, I made a piece titled "A Hero Awaits" during a panel at JordanCon called the "Charity Art Jam." I always liked the piece, but was a little disappointed that I had only 2 hours to complete the piece. I just never felt that I was able to give the piece the attention the subject (my favorite video game) deserved.
Flash forward to 2020, I had started playing around with alcohol markers and watercolor pens. I had just finished another video game inspired piece, Horrible Night to Have a Curse, and decided to try another stab at the Master Sword, using a different medium.
During Covid times, I travelled to Utah for a month, and got time to work on a bunch of new art pieces. Lost in the Woods was the first piece that I completed while enjoying my time, hiking around quite a number of National Parks out west.
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work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare.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. You can see his artwork at http://paulbielaczyc.com/.
