About

Marx Myth’s Artist Statement --I am a Cracker-barrel Surrealist with an affinity for low-brow kitsch... …however all creative endeavors fascinate me. My mainstay is the sketchbook... --I have kept a series of ongoing sketchbooks for years. Each book is flavored with esoteric ideas and pre-production formulations...I indulge myself as often as possible…this obsession has kept my skills honed and my catharsis eternal. --The computer is just another fancy tool …a magically endowed paintbrush that enables me to diversify my illustrative craft...all the same, I still love keeping my hands immersed in paint, Sculpey, ink, or graphite. --Concept art fascinates me most of all…I love the process of conjuring characters from a myriad of possible derivations…this philosophic quest compulsively drives me toward unfamiliar territories…I am a nomadic somnambulist searching for an ever-elusive aesthetic oracle. --I am an Educational and Aesthetic Mentor. My goal is to educate artistic undergraduates (+ younger mentees) with as much exposure to cutting edge art and technology as possible, motivate them to explore new aesthetic passages & enrich them with invigorating creative processes. Specialties: Art education/direction, concept art, illustrator, sculptor, writer, aesthetic spelunking
