The Wolfing

And speaking of wolves…

There is a werewolf in all of us.

No, not a literal werewolf like you see in the cheesy B-horror movies where the full moon rises and someone grows hair and fangs and start rushing out on a bloody rampage across town.  However, it’s the last part that’s sad but true- there is a dark side in all of us, a primal hunger for blood, triggered by negative factors such as anger, jealousy, fear, hate.  Most of the time we may vent it out on the spot with fights and verbal arguments.  But there are times when we would just hold it in for as long as possible, until like a boiling pot it bubbles over and Boom!  And in the worst case scenario it results in murder or a massacre.  Like Columbine, Sandy Hook, Charleston, Fort Sutter.  All result of pent up negative energy that spiraled out of control, and awakened the wolf within.

Nothing fancy done here, just some simple black strokes upon a chip board I bought from the scrapbox at Home Depot.  I really like how the texture of the board shows through the paint, giving it a wild jaggedy feel to the content.  It makes the wolf appear more ferocious.  I hope I can find more of these boards, they are actually hard to come by.

Until next time, keep your wolf tamed.  😉

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
