Cosmic Frog

Size: 4" x 6"
Medium: Prismacolor Colored Pencils
Surface: Acid-Free Archival Paper
Style: Composite Realism
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This elaborately detailed drawing is part of my new
Deep Thinkers series, in which various animals are
juxtaposed with evidence of human thought, in the
form of mathematical equations, quotes, definitions,
musical scores, etc. These pieces depict a zen-like
transcendent bridge between conceptual thinking and
animalistic consciousness. These two contrasts are
united by a careful use of color and decorative design.
This piece depicts a frog in front of a series of black
hole equations. The edges are decorated with an
abstract design reminiscent of Persian miniature
paintings. This artwork is entirely hand-drawn using
Prismacolor colored pencils. The paper has a 1" border
around all four edges to allow for easy matting and framing.

This drawing is available for purchase here.
