    Fishermen Gone Home

    Lately this is how I tend to work, in mixed media and sculpture. I like to manipulate the material with my hands, as opposed to just using a brush or a pencil. In this case, I sculpted the figure, photographed it, and then manipulated it in Photoshop.

    I think the subject of this poem appealed to me because fishing is huge in my family. It reminded me of watching my dad and brother fish.

    It was nice going to the lake to take my reference photographs for this piece. I went close to sunset, when the lighting was beautiful and there was a great sense of solitude outside. I was then able to bring those elements into my final illustration.
