'SILENCE OF THE LAMBS' by Pen-Tacular-Artist
'SILENCE OF THE LAMBS'

I decided to change my first artwork on animal cruelty as the message i was trying to convey was not obvious enough. As I was trying to convey the disturbing relationship between kids and animals.

As the the 2 people skinning the lambs (man with stripe shirt and female with dots on her top) are supposed to be the children in the front playing with the lamb when they are grown up. its still subtle but now that i changed the clothing slightly, hopefully it makes more sense now.


This is my first drawing in my series of artwork on animal cruelty and is titled 'Silence of the Lambs'. And it has been my most difficult drawing to date not only on a technical level but also on an emotional level.  In total it took about 95 hours over 10 days and is on A2 (420x594mm) paper.

Being a vegetarian my entire life I have always found peoples disconnect and relationship with animals and meat very disturbing. Especially the way in which animals on farms are on the one hand cared for and fed and animals like lambs are loved by kids. But on the other hand they are slaughtered for human consumption, which adults and children alike having no issues with this. And a movie that goes into this strange relationship is the movie 'Silence of the lambs'. When jodie fosters character describes being on a farm when she was a little girl, and witnessing the slaughter of little baby lambs that she loved. Hence why I titled my first artwork after this movie.

Lambs in particular are an animal that are loved by kids and adults alike as they are seen to be cute. But this does not stop them from having have a very short and horrific existence. As there entire short life is for the sole purpose of being slaughtered before they grow to maturity. With the meat of lambs between 12 and 20 months old may being called yearling mutton. The meat of sheep 6 to 10 weeks old is usually sold as baby lamb, and spring lamb is from sheep of five to six months. And I was shocked to witness first hand Lamb hearts being sold at my local supermarket.

If there is one thing I want people to do while looking at my artwork is to 'think' about what they are doing when buying or eating meat. As the amount of suffering that millions of animals go through on a daily basis for human consumption, in my opinion is one of the worst acts of evil.

'Guru Gobind Singh Ji' by Pen-Tacular-Artist
'Guru Gobind Singh Ji'
This is my first ever A2 graphite and charcoal drawing which is double the size of the A3 I usually use. From now on all artwork apart from commissioned clients portraits will be on A2 paper.

The drawing is of the tenth guru of the Sikhs 'Guru Gobind Singh Ji'. The drawing took me approximately 90 hours plus over a 10 day period.

And also a big 'THANKYOU' to whoever gave me a free membership over Christmas.

Before i give my life story i just wanted to highligtht that my drawings will mainly consist of graphite. And will encompass a wide variety of different 'fanart' especially sci-fi, games and comic book characters,aAs well as traditioal portraits (which is not my strong point yet).

Now for my life story. I have been drawing and loved art for as long as i can remember and graduated with a degree in 'Product Design' 13 years ago. And I also had my comics strip published in a national U.K newspaper when i was only 15. But for reasons that are way to complicated to go into here, i abruptly stopped drawing. And all self belief and confidence in my drawing abilties vanished which left me having no interest in art or design and I subsequently did not draw for a full 11 years.

But in mid 2012 i had an urge to draw again so opicked up my bic biro pen and haven't really stopped. And I loved using all types of pen's (hence my name) to draw, with my favourite pens originally being 'bic pens', 'magic markers' and 'rotring isograph pens'. But haveing started using graphite in sept 2012, it has now overtaken them and has now become my favourite medium to use.

I am only now at a point (since my spiderman drawing) where i should have been, due to neglecting my skills for 11 years. But i am making up for lost time and drawing every day and will not be happy till my work is up to the standard of some other incredible artists on DA, like 'Angelstorm-82' . So to all the other amazing artist on here thanks for the inspiration that you give me.
