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.

Damon Mohl

I think it's high time for a little apocalyptic sci-fi horror. Damon Mohl's work is currently on a series of linked blogs but he apparently has a website on the way. I'm looking forward to it.
His work is clearly that of an obsessive. Browsing your way through the various pages and different styles feels a little like wandering around through the dreams of a man that your not quite sure is completely sane (but you kind of like him anyway). If the paintings aren't your thing, check out his drawings. They're different. If that doesn't suit you, try his installations. Or his photographs. There's got to be something amid all this chaotic creativity that's going to grab you, crawl inside and stick somewhere in the back of your brain for a while (occasionally wriggling uncomfortably perhaps).
