Macabre through Oil Paints and Flash: Esao Andrews

Being from the desert myself, its refreshing to learn of an artist who wasn't raised in the hustle and bustle of an urban town-town. Although he ended up studying at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, he grew up in the Arizona desert, and his style notes its. His art stands out in that it doesn't follow the trendy urban themes of many of the NYC art school illustrators. Its got a hefty dose of subtle macabre, and his beautiful "Adams Family-esk" females contrasted against fleshy hairless creatures create a humorous juxtaposition. His abilities range over a wide spread of mediums, from photography, oil paints, to designing skateboards, and flash animation. His site is loaded with interactive flash. Anyway, you'll have to scope it out and let me know what you think.
