onyx black to 6 - Like Caine Roaming the Earth II
In 2013 I created "Like Caine Roaming the Earth" which has steadily climbed the ranks and become my most requested art in 2020. Here's a refresher on the naming from 2013:
The title of the print came from a conversation that Sam Jackson and John Travolta had in Pulp Fiction. Sam Jackson's character expresses that he is going to "just walk the earth", like Caine did in Kung Fu. Kung Fu is a TV show from the 70s featuring David Carradine as a Shaolin monk traveling the earth in search of his half-brother. The polar bear in my print is doing much of the same. He's navigating the obstacles in search of whatever his half-brother might be.
In 2020 the series walks forward with the polar bear now navigating desert sands. The core of the art is about exploration and seeking the unknown. It's about putting yourself around contrasting beings and in foreign environments. The imagery was created during the pandemic when many things stopped making sense.
I have plans to continue the series. If it takes forever I'll walk forever.
