ABOUT THE ART

Golden eagle (national mascot of Germany) drawing with a basic 2HB pencil. Drawn in celebration of Germany's FIFA World Cup 2014 victory. Number 27 in the "Grey Fauna" series. See them all in detail here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/Grey-Fauna/9762151

My intention with this series is to show these fantastical creatures in a serene fashion, drained of all colour. Using only a simple writing pencil to draw them is my way of making a statement against what I feel may be one of the culprits responsible for why so many of these creatures are facing a troubling decline in number on our planet. That culprit being humanity's burning need for acquiring more than they really need, better known as greed. The stress humans have put upon these creatures though pollution, habitat destruction, and in the case of the more exotic creatures, trophy hunting, all stem from humanity's unquenchable thirst and hunger to have what they don't need to have. Humanity's always testing limitations, and while that makes for promising technology, it doesn't serve nature well at all. How does this relate to a basic drawing tool, you ask? The key is in the word "basic". By drawing these animal portraits with a basic tool I'm challenging myself to make use of simple resources while suppressing my hunger to reach for the fabled "more". As a result, the series became more intimate and emotional, and maybe a little sad to reflect my feelings for the animals themselves.
