Description This is the third piece in the series and it also follows the same kind of pattern as the first two. It was also originally done in 2007 using Indian ink on white Bristol board (original size was 20x30). However, in this piece I tried a much different architectural style modeled after the famous Himeji Castle in Japan. This one has a lot of the same sort of stuff as the others so I wont bother to point out every little thing, but there is something interesting about this particular piece. While I was working on this series I asked some friends for some ideas and one of them suggested I do one with Japanese or Chinese architecture so I hid her name in the actual piece. Im not going to give away where it is exactly, but it is really small and well hidden so you have to really look to find it. In the end, out of all of the pieces in this series, this one is one of my favorites so I hope you really enjoy 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!
