The Quartet of the Apocalypse



Here's an illustrated for Kris Gobiel's "Artwork of the Apocalypse" show at the Golden West in Hampden, in Baltimore, MD. I'm also selling prints to raise money for the Skatepark of Baltimore (S.o.B). SoB is trying to raise $150,000 to build a permanent concrete skatepark at Roosevelt Park in hampden. More info here: http://www.skateparkofbaltimore.com/
12x18s glossy prints for $30. 18x24 inch posters framed for $100.

I wanted to make a piece that humorously illustrates the 4horsemen of the apocalypse, loosely described in the Biblical Book of Revelations, sitting down to celebrate the eradication of Human beings, but playing a quartet. The alien represents technology and all unknown's in our future, things we are afraid of. The Bear represents the destruction of our land-based natural resources, as the shark represents the Sea. Death represents religion, superstition, ignorance and intolerance. The style was chosen to try to appeal to the aesthetic of The Golden West's Hip-Pop-culture-surrealist -clientele. Hope you Enjoy!
