Description This is the outline of an actual leaf from a tropical plant called Monstera Deliciosa, or Mexican Breadfruit, which I had as a large houseplant. The plant is native to Central America, where it bears edible fruit, and can grow to enormous sizes. In this pen & ink piece the leaf is intricately decorated with stylized jungle foliage, along with several small scenes and icons. Douglas A. Griffin
Douglas Griffin, Nashville Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I've always had one foot in the world of visual art and the other in music. I studied music composition in college and was very influenced by aleatoric, or "chance" compositions. I then started creating much of my music and visual art through aleatoric means, adding compositing techniques learned from Photoshop effects guru, Kai Krause. Somehow, all these disparate but harmonious influences come together in my art works. I hope you enjoy them.
