Monday Mosh Monsters

In 2011, Adam Cutler began an illustration blog with the intention of reconnecting to his childhood love of drawing monsters. Every Monday morning, he sketched a new monster for www.mondaymoshmonsters.com. Despite their small scale and occasionally humorous effect, these graphite sketches come out of a long tradition of monsters in art, with their hybrid and disjointed bodies, exaggerated physicality, and all-too-human expressions. Cutler is a graduate of the New England Institute of Art. He balances life as an in-house corporate designer and freelance artist, and operates a multidisciplinary design studio called Motionless Visions.

Tim Evans
Faces All Around

The abstracted human face dominates here. Working with diverse media, including oil and acrylic paint, metal, and stone, Evans uses intense colors and deliberately crude brushstrokes to create portraits of unknown subjects, whose expressions convey a compelling urgency without defining narratives. With a BA from Boston College and MA from Harvard University, Evans participates in the Artist Group of Charlestown and ArtsWorcester. The artist’s studio is located in Westborough, MA and his works have been displayed at locations in greater Boston.
