New Ink Art

This is my latest stuff, fresh off the press. In actuality they're three separate inks each done on 10"x14" paper. Names are (starting from the left) Harlequin - Overlord - Argus
I, obviously, have some affection for symbolism, and have been working with it for sometime now- trying to make it my own.


Hi, my name is Marek Danielewski. I'm an Illustrator, here in Philadelphia. My medium is mostly ink on paper, but I have done other mediums like oil paintings and watercolors. Most of the art that I show on my blog is personal, and I almost think of it as therapeutic in nature. Thank you very much for the invitation to participate. I plan to post my newest artwork tonight, I'm just wrapping it up.

autobiographical work & tattoos

I never know if i should cross-post from blog to blog. I'm currently operating two separate blogs & then contributing to this one. I don't want to cross-post to all of them, but sometimes feel people might miss what i'm saying, so i try to mix up the content a bit! This is actually an old piece that i can't remember if i posted here or not, but i was feeling fond of it.
It's one of the first pieces where i started to include autobiographical elements, this one is about my childhood!

Then, i thought i'd share some tattoos people have of my drawings from the early 90s when i was a post-apocalyptic Punk Rocker with Volkisch tendencies.

These two have the same drawing done.

I kind of miss the days of when i was involved in a subculture where stuff like this would happen more (people getting tattoos of my work), when i was very much tied into a group of people & was a bit of an iconoclastic shaman of sorts. Ever since i decided to become part of society, i have felt more isolated on one hand, but on the other hand, less alienated. I prefer this actually... i hate alienation.

I had this up on my wall at home but had to take it down 'cause the eyes seem to follow me around the room and it was quite unsettling

Oozy Woozy

So lately I've been insanely busy working on a vast pile of ink creature drawings. I've got between one thousand and one thousand 200ish that I'm doing, all of which will be published this fall. I'm also planning on printing all of them across one big poster that I'll probably sell on my blog. I had to put a lot of paintings on the back burner to do this series and will be returning to those soon. Beyond that I'm doing a mini art book concerning the alphabet recreated with demons and tortured souls which grew out of some stuff I was doing for Craig Yoe's next Arf book which is due out in May. I'm juggling back and forth on other projects like my digital stuff and Hob Bob, some sculptures of monster masks and other stuff I'm forgetting. I've been wanting to experiment with the technique that Xia Xiaowan has put to amazing use. Been thinking of getting a small stack of plexiglass and painting layer over layer to create some sort of landscape with the distant areas painted in the backward pieces and the foreground objects painted in the frontward pieces. Has anyone messed around with anything like that? Anyway, no art for now as I'm not near a scanner.

edit - I just had a crazy dream where I ran out of a large classical dome theater in the middle of a forest and was trying to escape a giant monster that resembled a huge wooden painted devil with clots of black fur that was trying to eat me, it was awesome! I've already forgotten the details but I know the giant wooden puppet thing had something to do with the show, and no it wasn't Faust.

Mr. Sean in the news!!!

Fun article about me in the Lane Community College Torch newspaper.
Mr. Sean's neighborhood welcomes the unique and eccentric to the art world - Arts
"To me, good art is a combination of having the skills and the vision, but also kicking over garbage cans and digging up graves. Making all of this political propaganda feel-good art is just too communistic for me to deal with." ha ha!

Also, personal note. My first gang was Rat Punks. We had the most gang graffiti up in Berkeley in 1995. That's right you punks!!!

salt distorted

I ended up hopping around FLICKR last night looking at the work of a bunch of trendoid hipster artists. The work was all very slick & well-crafted, i'll give it that much, but does it look like i give two bits of bottom botulism about that? After filling my brain with such things i don't know what to do. I spent a bit of time working that angle, the hipster trendoid angle, but it just isn't me. I'm a Salt of the earth type. Honestly, i think i dislike most artists.
