byrne

last night i met an artist whose work i admire~ joel elrod. i love his uneven line, his sadness, his "naive" self-taught look, his lettering, his freeness, his doodles, his imagery-birds, vines, gardens, contorted faces, smoke, beauty, anguish...
he was so kind to have me over and speak of his influences, whom not surprisingly, i too gravitate towards many of the same artists: henrik drescher, the clayton brothers,francis bacon and joe sorren (whom he went to school with).

thank you for sharing.
