"Try Not to Look" is about ignoring the rough parts of life: finding out the death of friends, drug addiction, and so on. It's sometimes easier to ignore, and try not to think about them. This piece is on heavyweight paper with one inch borders. It will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Anthony

Anthony Christopher enjoys exploring what he calls the “darker sides of the imagination.” To let his creativity take full flight, he approaches each blank piece of paper without a clear starting point. From there, his illustrations fill the page and leave no spot untouched. Even the negative spaces feel purposeful and whimsical. “I want people to have to take a close look to understand all the details and hopefully have an emotional connection with the drawings,” he explains. You can definitely get lost in his works – many of them mix words with intricate patterns you can’t see with just a quick glance. His mixture of surreal and abstract makes for eclectic and memorable artworks.
