I LURK IN BUSHES

I-LIB (I LURK IN BUSHES) influenced by human motives, hopes and fears the Edwardian style imagery is translated by the sensitive eyes of the artist into poetic visions with surreal and dreamlike atmospheres of anthropomorphic subjects and there relationship’s as they revolve around Love, Hate, Life and Death.
Anthropomorphic creatures are an allegory of human weakness, wondrous animals that re-emerge from our childhood memories to illustrate fairy tales that are morally crude and disenchanted. he is a dream of animals that are not yet designed and built, but who’s mutations grow and twist up out of a time and place long past.
From the fine and delicate lines in the drawings to the mechanical and interactive sculpture-animals and installations made of dead lifeless objects all lead us into an extraordinarily life-full poetic world that is surely the soul reason alice went chasing down the rabbit hole.

Patents of nobility :

I went from nothing to something like the planet earth,

I showed the world how to make proficiency from dirt

Breathing through his nostrils,

Fill him up with gospel

Leave him on a mounting top shining surrounded by his apostles

Who’s that? Me the voodoo man

From the lost land of the catastrophic

Geologic, phenomenal slowly rising sea levels only a profit can stop it

Just unknown history ask Robert Leroy Ripley

Believe it or not im going to spill it till they strip me

Crown me with thorns march me up the hill

Crucifix me then ditch me

The rest is all a mystery

Ill be standing in a stream turning water into whisky

Being cast judgment on by the gypsy’s

Then my words got them all tipsy

Staggering out the village but tomorrow they wont forget me

Patents of nobility

Departure:

His life was like a folk law legend,but it wasn’t make-believe, hearsay, myth, play or pretend. He could make the forces of nature and your mind bend, and as his eye’s gaze across thee, you’ll be put in a trance, true sorcery. I felt the true sensation of the flight of the soul and intensely colored dramatic visions As my dreams unfold, encounters with supernatural beings and demons, as my soul grew cold. Seeing chapters of my life I wish I could have just kept hold.


Limbo.

This is where I stand. In the vast unknown, direction is meaningless. Feelings are vague and decisions are pointless. With no orientation of where one stands, confusion and panic set in.
I fear I’m falling, but can’t be sure.

This is an illustration i did for Korsakoff’s Paper Chain of A6 micro-anthologies pocket book of spells & poetry. the idea was to create an ‘atmosphere’ of magic but avoid being over-literal or too ‘traditional’ - ie. witches stirring cauldrons, wizards with wands. so this is what i come up with in 2 color ways
