Mythological Creatures by Jon Reinfurt
As I was reorganizing my studio I stumbled onto this fun set of collage paintings I did back in 2008/2009. These guys were originally created in preparation for the Ice Cream Robot series, in order to work out the kinks in the collage techniques I wanted to use. Each one of these “sketches” where done on a large format moleskin notebook which I later gutted so that I could eventually use the paintings for a future show. Unfortunately they never saw the light of day, but I still loved how they came out. I only spent about 30-45 minutes on each one so there’s a great gestural quality to the characters even though I’m using bold shapes.
