Paul Carrick
Artist
United States
Greetings! I am a freelance illustrator/artist from Boston, much of my work falls into the fantasy/games genre, with a specialty of H.P. Lovecraft inspired art. I've been enjoying music illustration (CDs, LPs and the like) recently and would welcome more of it.

Current Residence: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Exquisite Corpse- animated Gif progress 2
I've been trying to make a habit of taking a quick snapshot photo of my paintings after each session.  I have a very roundabout way of designing and prefer to not plan out too much in advance because I find it inhibits spontaneity.  However, it also involves a great deal of repainting.  But, it makes a fun animated gif in the end. ;) (Wink)  This gif is for the second Equisite Corpse project with Bernard Dumaine fav.me/d8yagg4

Dream of the Wizard - EC with Bernard Dumaine 2
Acrylic on canvas 15 x 18"

This is my second participation in an Exquisite Corpse ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exquisit… )collaborative project with Bernard Dumaine: bernardumaine.deviantart.com/   Bernard painted the central 50% of the painting, and I painted the top and bottom 25% portions.  When it was my turn to paint, all I could see was an exposed inch of his work and I was to continue on without knowing what else he had done.  It's very interesting exercise, to say the least!  First there is trying to match the first artist's style (application and color) and attempting a seamless as possible transition from one hand to another.  Then, one tries to work with a composition when half of it is a complete mystery- it is certainly an exercise in letting go! :lol:  It was a great deal of fun to finally unwrap it after months of only knowing a small percentage of what Bernard had done, I let out a great laugh of joy when I saw what he'd done!

As this is a collaboration and I am only partially responsible for this art, please visit Bernard's page and give him comments and favs here: fav.me/d8yaufu

Update: I have uploaded 2 animated .gif files of the painting in progress: fav.me/d8ybrqx fav.me/d8ybovu

You are quite welcome. I have lost count on how many maps I have made for my role-playing games, D&D, Gamma World, Star Wars, and countless others. Love your Cthulhu art.

Thanks! :)

Have you also found that you're now the 'go-to' guy whenever a map (museum, new town) is involved?  I guess all those hours making maps has paid off. :lol:

As a matter of fact, I have. though I do not mind at all.  It would be nice if it paid off with cash too...:)
