Nine IDOLS: Four to Go…

Okay, I’ve completed three more in the Nine Idols series.

This is Reaper, the Idol of Bloodshed and Violence.  Given humankind’s mad obsession for blood and wrath, and adding on the recent social and political storm in the US over gun control.  Not to mention the ominous signs that the world is steps closer to another catastrophic conflict since WW2, which I pray to God will not happen.

Like the Greek God Dionysus BOOZEY lords over those who just can’t get enough of drinks of all kinds, like beer, wine, whiskey, vodka, tequila-you name it.  And for many people that has proved to be fatal.

This guy, MR. VAIN, was actually the first to be completed. (see here)  I just put another layer of purple paint in the background.

There’s still four more heads to go, I’m pretty sure I can get them all within the next two weeks or so.  Hope you will stick around to the finish.  Have good Memorial Day weekend!

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.
