Pre-Halloween #1

ink, watercolor

Many mornings, when I happen to be up very early (it involves a cat), I do a little sketch.  This happens to be #151 in a sketchbook that I call “Zig Zag.”  The title has nothing to do with joint rolling paper; the subjects covered in the book zig and zag from topic to topic .  And, most years, I also happen to do a halloween poster for friends. So this is one image that I considered for the 2011 poster.  Since it isn’t going to be on that poster, I thought that I would use it as sort of a build up to the image that is actually on that poster.  I think that it is a picture of a zombie.  I did the teeth as a tribute to George Condo whose pictures are full of humor and skill.


About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
