About the Piece:
Even when you think no one is watching, there is always something following your every footstep, watching your every move. These creatures see us at our worst, the sins we commit, the crimes we perpetrate… the dark secrets that we pray no one will ever discover. As the memories of these dark deeds fester and grow, these shades gain in strength. The darker your soul, the more powerful their anger, their hunger.
Eventually they become powerful enough to break free from their shadowy prison and manifest into our reality. And once free, they seek revenge on the cause of their guilt, the one who made them an unwilling accomplice to all the dark deeds they witnessed.
The original sold at Dragon*Con 2010.
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work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare.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/.
