I don't impress easily when it comes to artwork, digital or otherwise. I'm aging, cynical, jaded, and bitter.
Well, most of the time. ;)
The family and I spent the day in Las Vegas, and went to the Springs Preserve, a new(-ish) grouping of indoor and outdoor exhibits, museums, and gardens that showcase the history and prehistory of the Las Vegas valley.
In one of the museums, they had a small section that featured artwork from local high school students.
I was blown away by one picture in particular. It was a standard 36" by 24" framed illustration, hand-drawn, titled, "Outcome Of A Daydreaming Hand," by Jacob Nelson, a high school senior at Bishop Gorman High.
Amazing, no? The entire piece is a doodle, a sketch in the margins. Mere scribblings.
Only it's an impressive doodle by a very talented artist. I was blown away. His technique is unorthodox, yet brilliant. I love it.
Great job, Mr. Nelson. You've impressed this aging, bitter man.
