I have been lucky enough to have had 30 years and counting in the field of art and illustration, and I like to think that I am just getting started. I have developed a whimsical and approachable style of artwork that has had pretty broad appeal with all ages for 3 decades, and have been happily producing thousands of artworks for all possible reasons and clients.
Thing is, I really just do it for fun. I realized fresh out of art college, that one can just play with line, color, composition, and materials, strictly for the pure enjoyment of it. I mean who doesn’t want to wake up each day and say… cool, I get to just do whatever I want today?
Well, I have had that blessing most days, and I don’t plan on slowing down. I love what I do, I love making new things, and I love sharing it with people, and I mean ANYONE. To that end, I have developed a couple of great methods of working directly with any random group of people, of any age, any amount of participants, anywhere in the world.
Disaster - Dean Stanton X Kiku's World by Sabet
This image was created as a fun interpretation of all the fictional world-ending
mayhem we have all grown up with. From theories about monsters,
aliens, asteroid impacts and other fantastic out-of-this-world fates
that await us as a species, I wanted to make a fun summary in one image of
these possibilities, with everyone essentially happy as a clam.
So there I was one day, having a bit of a challenging day...and I said as I often do (despite the fires all around me),
"Hey, it's all good."
Years ago I came across a graphic novel, one that was essentially a tale about a fantastic, glittering City of The Future…I made this image years later, and this
Is the latest and greatest permutation of that idea….and can be applied to any city, anywhere on this big blue marble we call home. I mean after all every city is radiant, to the people that live there.
Every few years I tinker with new ideas, ventures, or processes, and early in my development as an artist, I adopted "100% Pure Success" as a precursor to creating something new. I mean, after all, no one said new ideas WON'T be 100% successful, so damn the torpedoes...
full steam ahead, baby.
