Description This piece is more of a digital collage, than a drawing. It is a combination of sections from Super Trip and The City Life. Most notably the bottom right corner of this piece is a blown up version of the same corner on Super Trip. I was experimenting a lot with resizing and warping different sections to fit and flow within already finished areas.When I started playing around with this, I had no idea where I was going with it and did not really have a goal in mind. I also happened to be listening to a Jazz station on iTunes. I think subliminally the Jazz came through in the art. Jazz is very spontaneous and improvisational, much like the way that this piece came together. I am really happy with the end result. Cyber Jazz and Super Trip really look great side by side and present a very vibrant explosion of color.
Phil Lewis, Boulder, CO Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement Throughout my life I have always felt a special connection to nature, and being outdoors inspires me to create. The amazing scenery in Colorado has certainly fueled this inspiration, and the surrounding landscapes appear frequently in my work. In addition to drawing the things I see around me, I also like to draw the things I come up with on my own. To imagine is the most fun.
Lately I have been developing a style of artwork that combines pen drawings and digital design. I will start out with black line drawings and then color them in with Sharpie and Prismacolor markers. I then scan my drawings into Photoshop and re-brush some of the sections, add shading, effects, and adjust the colors until they “pop” as much as possible. I then print the images digitally on fine-art canvas. The resulting media is a hybrid pen-drawing / digital-canvas, which ends up looking like a giant piece of candy stuck to the wall.
I am truly humbled and grateful for the ability to create this art, and through it, I hope to bring as much color and light into the world as I can.
Thanks for viewing. Have a great day.
