Charles Glaubitz's work is amazing. I had the wonderful opportunity to see a show of his work last February in Monterey and was blown away. It feels like he uses wax and paint together (though I don't know if he does) to create a rich layering and intense depth of color. In the show that I saw, each of the pieces were a part a collective narrative illustrating a part of a fantastic, beautiful and scary story. These images are a couple of the "lighter" illustrations in the story. To check out more of his work go to his rep Jennifer Vaugn's site.
