Thought Cloud Shrines by Theo Ellsworth

One of the artists whose work made an impression on me yesterday at the Comics Fest was Theo Ellsworth, whose site is worth a visit, along with his blog Thought Cloud Factory News.  I picked up his drawing book Thought Cloud Shrines along with a print, Portrait of a Garden Gnome.  He’s also got a book of drawings and comics called Capacity, shown below.

I like his dense ink style, and the visionary imagination.  He’s located here in Portland, and “He does invisible performance art that no one will ever see.”  I like work that in some way tries to visualize the thought structures in our minds, that we’re constantly building and re-building.
