Description Why did I draw a flugelhornist? Why bother drawing a flugelhorn when it looks like the trumpet and the cornet? Well, I feel that honoring each individual instrument is important. Would you draw a vanilla ice cream cone and feel that this drawing will cover mint n' chip? No, sir. The flugelhorn has its own distinctive flavor: let me see if I can describe it. It sounds like walking down a city in the 1930s and hearing a party in a distant hotel room. It sounds like a Saturday night in which you have Sunday and Monday off.
Pollux (Paul Morris), Los Angeles, California Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Thanks for visiting my page!
Pollux is my pen-name. In one way or another, I've always scribbled, sketched, and painted. My goal is to plunge into the subterranean world that exists just beyond the conscious world -a sort of visit to a mad world with a round-trip ticket. My galleries are divided into basic topics: Gods, Animals, Mortals, Cities, Zodiacal Symbols, Jazz Musicians, Landscapes, etc.
I've self-published a number of comic and humor titles. I've published the graphic novels The Golden Helmsman, A Lime on a Rain-Covered Sidewalk, and Ferrex and Porrex, among others.
My acrylic paintings join seemingly irreconcilable objects together to create visually arresting, and sometimes jarring, images.
