Air, Earth, Water & Fire are the primary elemental energies that are the foundation for life. Each of these elements bring with them their own unique identity. My drawings depict each of these forces, overlaying them with human figures to further convey an image of the personalities that dwell within, and as a reminder of the importance of the world in which we live. I approach my work from the viewpoint of a naturalist, combining it with the realm of fantasy. I compose my drawings with great attention to detail, merging images as I draw to create a feeling of mysticism. While these graphite drawings are relatively small in scale, it took 100-150 hours to complete each one using .2 and .3 mechanical pencils. Individual drawing titles are: Air Elemental: Prevailing Optimism, Water Elemental: Serenity's Renewal, Earth Elemental: Divine Fodder, Fire Elemental: Passion's Resolve
