Eyvind Madness


So this be my attempt at 2 things. One is doing a piece completely digitally, from the sketch to the final product... And Two is to do a piece in an Eyvind Earle style. This was a lot of fun. After doing it though, I have concluded that Mr. Earle was insane. You have to be to have the patience to do these kind of pieces. Even though this is digital, it took me a while to do. I can just imagine using actual paints, mixing color and what not. Pure madness. I guess its what makes his artork so FREAKING beautiful is the amount of detail to it. He was a true artist. I hope I have done you justice Eyind Earle. Can't wait to do more of these!

Hi Hugo, I happened on your blog and love this!
Your eye for detail gives your own style, warmth and sincerity than Eyvind Earle, but glad he was your muse! Love the little girl perched looking out & vibrant colors on the branches turning to hearts!Thanks for inspiring me!

your applied thoughtful patience in the realm of art is something i have always admired. we are not close, must we be for me to appreciate you?

yourartwork strikes me as a type of convergence of enduring humor/ enlightening positivity with sexy punX. such a powerful combo births a sinful delivery of accurate, at times reality defying beauty. my shit is being persecuted and i am at the library to find your work as i am always returning to it when i feel oppressed. my family literally reminds me to go find your work whenever i am blue. thank you for remaining public and keeping your work available online to a fan such as i.

long live your exploration into digital artwork. i follow your digi-lead in the realm not yet defined as art, but rather, medicine. link arms when i get the plastic overture of funding?...i still want help with designing a cellphone encased in toyshine... how much might that cost my oppressed ass? wat wat
