Currently showing at Robischon Gallery in Denver, Colorado is Christian Rex van Minnen’s solo show, “Golden Memes.” The insanely talented painter has put his skills on full display, continuing his stylistic oddities that resemble classical Dutch masterworks under the influence of psychedelics. Minnen says that his work is most inspired by pop culture.
Every now and again i get to draw some of my OC stuff. Voidsphere (title pending because i am all over the place) is like, full of dead people and monsters and cool magic and people suffering. The normal stuff.
But yeah, i thought i would share some of my doodles with you. The first is a tentative map of the Voidsphere itself, from the core, all the way to the outer void. After that you have the first sketch I did for the Librarian, which i have scrapped (but kept because its not a bad doodle at all). The second is the form i decided for him to keep, a great leviathan-esque beastie. Based off of whales, frilled sharks, various monsters and deep sea fish.
Gotta say, he’s probably one of my favourite characters I’ve ever made. He governs the Library, which is the collected records of all ideas and thoughts in all of creation. He can’t speak by himself, so he uses quotes from the endless books around him, culminating is an almost cloud of whispers as he speaks to you (because there’s no shouting in the library, of course). He is one of the first Voidlings, but he is neither the oldest, nor the biggest monster in the Library. As its as sphere, the closer you get to the core of the Void, the older the books are. And between the shelves (that’s are vast enough to allow him to travel through them very easily) there are dark secrets from the inception of the Voidsphere.
He’ll take you to them if you like, but once you leave the outer ring of shelves, you are forbidden to leave The Library.
