Sonic Aftermath by Tolkyes
Sonic Aftermath
Oil on canvas. 22"x28".
Commission. Poster and album cover for local rock group of the same name.

I found the name "Sonic Aftermath" to be very inspirational. This painting alludes to the creation of the universe (or universes) up to the present, including String Theory references.
Besides as a design element my biomorphic imagery also alludes to dark matter and dark energy.

Tolkyes's Profile Picture
James McCarthy
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I grew up with a taste for sci-fi and fantasy but the beauty of nature (especially Winter and the other seasons) has always moved me.
Music inspires me to paint, especially "mindscape' music, such as prog rock, psychedelic music, classical, new age and medieval music.
Places from my childhood memories or places that I see in and around my neighborhood influence some of the landscapes in my paintings, as well.

I just saw you artworks in the feature: Featured Artists - Volume 27 . When I saw the first artwork I totally fell in love, and when I saw the second one I started to feel like I NEED to have your art book. Do you sell art books? I'd totally love to have one with your amazing inspiring artworks!

Thank you. I've always wanted to make an art book but they usually cost money. Eventually, I'll make one. I do have calendars on Zazzle.
