Description This is the second piece in a series of ten pen and inks focused on working with proportion and architecture. It was originally done in 2007 using Indian ink on white Bristol board. Its original size was 20x28 and I added a couple close ups (in the same gallery) to let you see the level of quality and detail better.There are some interesting things to note about this piece that you might miss at first glance. The first thing is the chess board, the pieces are laid out in such away that both kings (black and white) are put in checkmate by a rogue queen (gray). The next thing you might not notice are the four signs, one outside each door, which have each of the four card symbols. Other than that, there are poker chips, dice, and dominoes scattered around and its all on a giant wooden table. Everything else in the picture is pretty self explanatory and I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Isaac Root, Blacksburg Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement Who is this oh-so-mysterious gent located to the upper left of your computer screen? This beguiling chap wearing an oddly alluring, and yet, quizzical look all while enjoying an old fashioned smoke on his pipe?
Well, despite what your first impressions may be, there really isn't anything magnificently mysterious or incredibly interesting about me. In all truth, I am but a simple and humble college student currently working towards his degree in aerospace engineering at Virginia Tech. So, as you can see, my life isn't too terribly interesting, which is why I shall now step aside and leave it to my art to interest and astound the masses! and so I will implore you to look through my art and to travel through the endless seas and boundless mountains of your imagination to find the most precious of commodities that an artist can offer: that singular enjoyment brought about by the creativity of their mind and the sweat of their hands!
