Quick glance: Venter & Dawkins

A quick glance at two of the (hopefully) six portraits I'm doing for my drawing class at York U.

Left, J. Craig Venter, right, Richard Dawkins. Click-y to enlarge-y.
I'm thinking about calling the series, "Lights". I'm planning next to do Jane Goodall, Rosalind Franklin, Eugenie Scott and mmmmaaaybe, Carl Sagan.

Quality is somewhat sacrificed for time, but I suppose they're passable.

What you have is real art

Glendon Mellow said...

Thanks for the compliment, shady80baby! And thanks too, Cabbage Soup Recipe.

Oberon, I don't know what to say except stop drinking that Kool-aid. Not all problems are solved by love. Some need reason and rationality.

Congrats on being a note worthy blog! You art is amazing!

Thanks James!

Thank you so much, Meg! (Shopping can be my salvation too.)

You're an incredible artist. I especially love the scientific themes. Art and science are possibly my two favourite aspects of life, and you've woven them together in a perfect tapestry.
Sorry, I just read that over, and it sounds terrifying. ^.^

Glendon Mellow said...

Thanks, Dee! There is such a richness to scientific discovery, I like to lend it's use to stand in for other things. It widens our visual vocabulary.

(By the way, couldn't figure out how to comment on your blog. The Japanese manhole cover is more likely emblazoned with a swastika because of the symbol's roots in Buddhism than because of Nazis. But I'm just guessing.)

dee said...

Probably. ^.^ Just the first thing that comes to mind is the nazi's, and Japan's connections with that. I didn't know it was related to Buddhism, so thanks for that. ^.^

Glendon Mellow said...

No worries, Dee. One of the less heinous crimes of the Nazis was co-opting symbols from other cultures and perverting their meaning.

Leah Elliott Hauge said...

I adore Jane Goodall and can't wait to see what you come up with in awe of her!

Glendon Mellow said...

The Jane Goodall piece is about 25% done -I'm hoping to put it up sometime tomorrow!

Thanks Leah! I'm fairly nervous about that one.
