Artist's Description

Virgil

This is a tribute to my great friend and mentor Sang Lee.
In life he was a guide to me and to others. A great artist and a true friend. For some time I’ve been meaning to do something to honor his memory.

Recently his birthday passed and I got to thinking about him. A decade ago I asked him to draw Virgil from Dante’s Inferno for an event I was organizing. I gave him some paper and some charcoal and he went to town. He came back to me with several drawings that to this day I feel are among his most memorable works.

This image was originally a black and white charcoal created by Sang. Using photo manipulation techniques I extended the original image, gave it color, and lighting treatments.

Sang gave this to me, and so now I give this to the world. May his energy and boundless spirit soar the universe, and if in the darkness you ever find yourself lost, let Virgil guide you.

If you like my work, you can find me on Facebook or give me a watch. Thanks.
