Bones and Branches by Anthony McCracken

Currently unavailable for purchase

I asked an employee at Barnes and Noble for a blank piece of paper. He kindly gave me a sheet from a very old one-a-day sports fact calendar. In my pocket I had a ballpoint pen and a Sharpie. I used the pen on the blank side, drawing the character and some of the mist coming off of him. Then I used the Sharpie on the word side to give him a strange background to go with the words showing through. I liked how it had a sort of… spooky, Goth graffiti feel to it.


Born in Northern California, I’ve made and studied art most of my life and my favorite things to make are from darker tones and subjects. Since I was very young I’ve pushed myself through requests, so feel free to ask me for a personal work.

    pretty cool. you are a bit of a performance artist :)) did you entertain and show? really love the meandering nature of the growing doodle. Fabulous ork Wanthony. :))

  • Thank you! I’m glad you like it! That’s very nice of you to say, I’ve participated in art shows and very rarely have done any performing :-) I’ve more often been into visual art and writing. I appreciate your reply to my comment on your work and I thank you for looking at mine and it’s a pleasure to meet you too :-)
