When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Chris Mars

How did I not know of this artist earlier? Here is work to gnaw at you even while it entertains. What are monsters? What is madness? The answers are not simple. But they can be beautiful.
I wonder if this guy and Chet Zar (Jan. 22, 2009) are friends?


"Like Moths"


"A Soother for Dwayne"


  1. I'm sure that most people know this fun fact about Chris Mars. He was the drummer for The Replacements. He also released 2 solo albums. I think it was 2. I know I own one, at least. I really love his work. He is inspired by his brother's struggles with Schizophrenia.

  2. Love his work. Ya, if he and Chet aren't friends they should be.
    Cool about him being a drummer for the Replacements. I used to love those guys.
