The Ghost

Here is the full series “The Ghost” Published December 15th 2013.  This is a project I began in 2012, and finalized in late 2013. Its a series of drawings that tell a narrative which describes the after life of a leviathan who has drifted onto sea. I drew much of the aesthetic for this piece from one my heroes William Hogarth. The series has been showcased in a few small publications: Polonium Magazine, Lumpen Comics, and 1007. I had never shown the collection of work in its entirety until I had a solo show at the Peanut Gallery Jan 5th 2014. At the show we sold the original artworks, a silkscreen/giclee print suite, and featured an animation “The Accident.”

Or at least Humboldt Park, which is sort of west and not really south at all. Geographic quibbles aside, the neighborhood’s Peanut Gallery is worth a visit thanks to local graphic artist, animator, and printmaker Sean Hernandez, who explores his Southwestern roots in his latest exhibit, Ghost Town. In a selection of drawings and animations, he tells the story of Howlin Creek, a fictitious town surrounded by a vast desert and haunted by ghosts. The winding narrative draws its energy from the complicated relationship between the body and mind. Check out some of Sean’s Wax Wing prints for a glimpse of what you’re in for. (Peanut Gallery, 1000 N. California Ave. Opening reception is Sunday, January 5, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The exhibit closes on February 2. Free admission.)”  (FROM GROUPON)
