Lo­ca­tion: US ME­DIA : Pro­cre­ate Web: www.dar­ren­gold­man.com Dar­ren’s aes­thetic is a blend of Jim Hen­son, Ed­ward Gorey and Mar­garet Keane. He has a weak­ness for ‘pa­thet­i­cally cute’ crea­tures, and one of his big­gest in­spi­ra­tions is his Bos­ton Ter­rier Lola.

1 Slow It Down

“I blurred the lines be­tween fantasy art and pho­to­re­al­ism, and lim­ited my colour pal­ette to cre­ate a dream­like yet be­liev­able world. There’s a Mup­pet in­flu­ence in there, too.”

2 Tee th Fairy

“In­spired by the Hell­boy fran­chise, I wanted to take the con­cept of the tooth fairy down a more dis­turb­ing path. I played with trans­parency to cre­ate be­liev­able move­ment for the wings.”

Alien Lands cape 3

“I paint a lot of char­ac­ter-cen­tric pieces, so I chal­lenged my­self to fo­cus on the larger landscape here. I kept my colour pal­ette min­i­mal and played with the con­trast in val­ues to show depth.”

4 Trash Trou­bles

“I wanted to com­bine my love of yetis (and yeti-like crea­tures) and my en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns. I used wide, flat brushes to achieve a more painterly style.”
