From The Graphic Design Studio: A 1980's Fine Art Throwback

Welcome back to the Gauntlet of Balthazar for another (I hope long awaited) installment of "From the Graphic Design Studio".

While this feature most often focuses on the branding logos and pre-production artwork designed to holistically advance the episodic series and feature films that Nevekari Enterprise has been dutifully developing (and that are featured on our website and YouTube Channel), I occasionally find it, well, creatively fulfilling, to post other visual artwork from the past, simply for the sake of cataloging, promotion, and of course, ideally, for the viewer's enjoyment.

Today's post-case is no exception, and is one such of these "historical" endeavors, presenting three fine art pencil drawings that were more or less randomly pulled from the creative back catalogue. To the best of my memory I estimate that all of them were executed in the period 1982-1984 (no months please), or thereabouts.

To explain each of the three pieces briefly: The horizontal piece at the top is probably my favorite nude from life drawing I did in my youth, and till this day I'm very pleased with the rendering of the musculature of the back. The bottom left is a quick copy of a portion of a painting of then (and maybe a little now) personal hero, Napoleon Bonaparte. I'm unsure who created the original oil on canvas, but suffice it to say it's hanging in one of the New York museums. Lastly, the final choice for today is a simple sketch of one of my early college classmates, a beauty named Liza, who last I heard of was living in the DC area, (though that information is surely out of date).

Anyway, enjoy, and come back again soon for some of my / our brewing creative endeavors, including, some music, a sculpture, a short film I'm almost done editing, and certainly, some far too snooty and heady political opinions.

Till next time.
