The Dalek by Lynnette Shelley

Currently unavailable for purchase

For those of you who are familiar with the sci fi TV series, Doctor Who, this is a portrait of one of the daleks. For those of you not familiar with Doctor Who, a dalek is an evil alien race of genetically engineered mutants (roughly). In practice they look like art deco robots .

Ink / Coffee / Red Wine on cold-press watercolor paper

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.

    A very fine dalek, looking suitably dark and menacing! (Actually, I always thought they were really cute! :)
