Pencilled Mayhem II

Once before, I featured the pencil creations of Shane Lees in the Niteblade art blog. Well, Shane is back, and his art is wilder than ever! Whether it be jellyfish floating in space, a Roman fort sitting beneath a triad of moons, whales soaring through the sky, or a spider web eye, Shane’s fantastic visions sweep the viewer away to surreal locales and strange realities.

An overwhelming desire to draw overcame Shane when he was but a young lad growing up in Tacoma, Washington. He earned a  B.F.A. in Graphic Illustration from the Art Institute of Tacoma, and has won several art competitions. Among his various credits, he has been commissioned to illustrate gaming cards for the on-line roll playing game Dark Confrontation by Hand Made Games, and book covers for Dreamspinner Press. More recently, Shane has been commissioned to illustrate Dave Hitt’s podiobook Blood Witness.

Being a sketcher at heart, Shane’s artistic weapon of choice is a regular number two pencil. Occasionally, he resorts to wielding a 9B or charcoal. His art betrays his love for the fantasy and science-fiction genres, and his style often mixes realism with the fantastical.

Let Shane’s weird and wonderful works carry you off to somewhere else, somewhere strange, somewhere out of this world.

Shane’s bio, full list of credits and achievements, and on-line portfolio containing more examples of his artwork, can be found here.
