Donald Kerwin, Hamilton Square, NJ Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement Born in Chicago IL, Donald Kerwin began at an early age, drawing sketches of his views of the roadside as seen from the seat of his father's car. These were highly detailed pencil drawings of powerlines, telephone poles, and insulators as well as simple landscapes. He acquired a Graphic Arts degree in college and promptly began doing oil paintings. After hearing parents and friends vocalize common cliches, he decided to illustrate the phrase with comical environments, and created "TheStoryArtist.com" website. In July, 2012, he passed away at the age of 32, a true loss for everyone. His father, Tom Kerwin, is trying to fulfill his vision of making available his work to everyone.
A cliche is a trite, stereotyped expression that has become commonplace through overuse. Don has applied his brand of humor and creative artistry to illustrate the wisdom from decades or centuries of human experience found in these sayings. Enjoy!
Don sketched hundreds of pictures, comics, and famous people. These will be digitized and added to his Imagekind collection along with his vast portfolio of photographs taken over ten years. Keep watch for these updates.
