Jon Carling - The Krampus Hunter. The sketchy almost messy pen/pencil lines and shading give it texture and tone to provide a bit of depth. Black and white complement each other and create a balance. Has an otherworldly vibe.
Oakland-based artist Jon Carling’s work has been described as imperfectly precise, and otherworldly. “I want people to have an emotional response to my work that reminds them of being a child, when certain details are left out of an image, you use a very special part of your brain to fill in the spaces, and I think that is the key to engaging the viewer, let them write the story for themselves.”
