Haunted #11 by Joao Ruas, pencil and watercolour on 200gr watercolour paper - click for details/larger view
I'm not sure why I always end up liking male artists exhibiting at women-dominated group shows best, but I'm afraid I can't help myself and it seems that out of all the 25 artists presented at The Drawing Room, monsieur Joao Ruas' oeuvre (see above) has definitely left the biggest impression on me.
Evolution (The Dirty Land II) by Brian M. Viveros, graphite, watercolour & airbrush on handmade archival paper - click for details/larger view
I do know, however, that despite fighting it, I'm also still very much in love with Brian Viveros' airbrushed charcoal textures, even though the chain smoking really gets on my nerves these days. I understand that Nicorette® pacifiers are way less aesthetically pleasing, but I really wish his characters would finally decide to quit or at least move on to another, less predictable addiction. Thank you.
