Aardvark - Print
Beginnings: One day I asked some of my fans "What's your favorite animal? I received a large response, and drew every single animal requested in thick, elementary lines with a Pilot Super Marker, posting them on-line. I loved the bold simplicity and began to explore the style more, using thinner lines and much deeper detail. What you see to the left was the nascent beginning of my fascination of ink-on-paper, and the very beginnings of The Essence of Life and Line,on display in the rest of the show.
This is a drawing that was one of the inspirations of Sean's to create the show "Essence of Life and Line". See more about this show and pictures from the opening reception here. There is also a short film created from the opening reception that you can watch here.
The Aardvark print measures 11" x 14" and is printed on a digital press onto French Speckletone True White Paper. This paper is the first-ever recycled sheet with flecks and shives. Signed by Sean Martorana.
About French Paper:
French Paper Company has long been known as a pioneer in recycled paper manufacturing. Unlike other American paper mills, French is powered by fully renewable hydroelectric generators installed in 1922 (and saving over one million barrels of fossil fuel to date).
