Kevin Evans

Kevin Evans My imagery is a concoction of influence from the natural concealed world, instinct and the cavernous depths of imagination. The process is a provoking push and pull journey within medium and self with sporadic introductions of chaos to ensure an unpredictable voyage towards the concluding outcome. When working, I investigate the interior terrain, favoring an existence within a silent emblematic space. I deposit symbols, characters and texture -following an intuitive voice leading to unanticipated and surprising consequences.

Technique

The picture first begins as a sequence of visual ramblings in sketchbook. Intermittently, unsystematic rudiments and marks of disorder are introduced; on occasion regions destroyed or erased acting as a reaction trigger. It’s a procedure of embracing an atmosphere of unpredictability.

When the illustration has attained a condition of termination, it is then transmitted to canvas or printed in an intaglio technique.

    Beautiful work!
    I am very fascinated by the kinetic and organic qualities, and of course the color evokes an other-worldly aspect. Great to have your work here, and welcome!

    Your depiction of Cthulhu would blast the soul of a madman.
    Excellent work.

    Wow. Great work. Really great, work.

    Your Cthulhu… Is simply one of the best.

    Definitely the best representation of Cthulhu sporting more than 2 eyes… for reason of odd Mythos purism, I usualy consider the 2-eyed images of Great Old One kind of canonical, but yours blasted me, it is awesome. Definitely Canon!
    Love your work.

    P.S.: Also best 2D representation of R’Lyeh 😉

  12. Buster Wrote:

    I think… you could make an awesome Night Gaunt. Too few people draw them

  13. Curtis Wrote:

    Amazing stuff.

    The picture showing Cthulhu walking through the sea is somewhat absurd and unbelievable.. it is like all my certainties being completely wiped out.. all my good feelings being completely swept away.. This is ART.

    Good luck with your future works.
