About

The works on this blog are “hot off the press.” I draw everyday and believe it is important to show that work. That’s what an artist does. I also believe that it doesn’t matter whether everyone or even only a few like a given work or not. If they are interested, they will take a look and make their own judgment. Of course, it is nicer to hear sincere praise, when it happens.

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.

    Hi Myron. I’m Sean Weil, Virginia’s husband. We met a long time ago so I’m not sure if you remember me. I love your work and want to inquire on the price of Ulricke. I have another of your pieces that V bought me as a gift and look at it all the time. Thanks!

      Dear Sean:

      Of course I remember you. You visited our offices. You had your son with you. Thank you very much for your interest.

      “Ulricke” is sold in two ways: as an original work and as a print.

      The original is pen and ink on archival Aqua-Bee paper and measures 14 x 17 inches. Its price is $1,500. Because that may be more than you had in mind, I added the drawing to one of my print websites where you can buy any of several sizes, already framed for under $100. To access that site: http://myron-gilbert.artistwebsite.com/

      Thanks again. If I can be helpful, let me know. Please give my regards to Virginia. Of the people that I knew at Synovate, she is one of the best.

  2. Great! I am presently painting and drawing on a daily basis. I’ve even sprung for an art class.
    I like your philosophy and your art work.

      Good for you. Keep up the good work. Keep springing for art class but only if you are being taught about how to design and think about composition and about how to use light. If you get that stuff down, it will be all good.

      thanks for your comment

    hi write to you soon
    you seem very experienced if you have time check out my drawings..
    I have little experience in supporting myself with my work…how do you succeed?
    ciao ddumoor

    • mmgilbert says:

      First, if we are to get anywhere, we do not want “colorsluts” as our URL. Second, secure a day-job and promote like hell.

      • ddumoor says:

        integrity is integral…
        what do you think of the format?
        acasual as the production method and ( Hopi vs. hope) synchronicity of the story line…
        I await your reply anxiously
        yours etc.

    Hi Myron,
    Found your page clicking through Craigslist. Love your style- reminds me a little of Maurice Sendak. Keep up the good work!

    Becky

    • mmgilbert says:

      Thank you so much for your kind comment. I am glad that you found me and enjoyed my scratchings. Maurice lived near me and we both are graduates of the Art Students League of New York. He was a very private person. He lived in an isolated part of town and down a very long driveway.

      Best wishes.

    My name is Ateldoora D. Nightmoon-Barnum and I am the Co-Director of an internationally distributed online arts magazine: MUSE ARTS Zine (or “MAZ” as our fans call it). I am writing to you because recently a member of the Design Team was browsing Craigslist and spotted your website. After reviewing your work I am pleased to say that the entire team would like to see you published as one of our 2014/2015 issuses.

    First, let me take a moment to tell you a bit more about who we are and what we do as a magazine.

    As I mentioned before, we are an online international arts magazine. We currently boast steady readership in five countries with a total readership spanning eleven countries. As we are funded by a series of grants and charitable donations we are able to offer our magazine worldwide without charging submission fees, artist participation fees, and / or many of the traditional fees associated with indie-publishing.

    As a magazine, we are by artists and for artists. MAZ was originally founded by a small team of college educated artists. As we ourselves know how it is to get burned in publishing contracts we DO NOT ask our artists to surrender their creative rights to original works. (Any questions about creative ownership? Just email! We will be happy to help.)

    Last but not least, we at MAZ feel that publication is an inclusive process. If we choose to publish your work we will send you updates prior to publication and work with you to ensure that your work is being presented in a way that you are happy with. Once the issue has gone live a link will be sent to your email. This link can be shared an unlimited number of times at no cost to you or your readers.

    It’s just that simple!

    To find out if MAZ is right for you please check out our May 2014 issue. You can also visit the MAZ Fanpage on Facebook.
