The Artwork of Thomas M. Drew


Growing up with "Drew" as your last name and being artistically inclined doesn't leave with you too many options in life; but I like to draw. I also paint and sculpt too, but my last name isn't Drewpaintedandsculpts, know-what-I'm-sayin'? 

Anyway, sometimes I just use pencil. Sometimes I use ink. Other times I use colored pencils, paint, and computer. Most of the time I mix them up. That's mixed media. 

So, what do I draw? Well, deeper than the obvious subject matter of monsters, skulls, apocalyptic scenes, mythological symbols and portraitures of invented cultures, I'm trying to create a seamless narrative that may seem more familiar to the subconscious. A "transcendental language", if you will, to discuss my perspectives on reality, my spiritual and societal beliefs, and that which I am unable to express in words. 

Other times, I just draw monsters, skulls, and stuff. Or paint them. Or sculpt them.
