aotd: “Downslide”

Today’s piece is from Jeremy Harker, otherwise known as Melocopter, very cool nickname as well.
The painting is done in oil and is on a 20×16″ panel.

This specific piece is called “Downslide” and is from his “Disorders” series. The whole series has about five paintings in it, and it’s very solid. I love the colors that he uses, and he has a great style of drawing figures.

The piece kind of hit me, not only because it talks about depression, but because I love winter and I seem to get depressed in the summer(backwards of me eh?). But this doesn’t change the power of the imagery, the look on the kids face is one I have seen many times. It’s very effective in letting you know whats going on.

Make sure you check out the rest of Jeremy’s work, and the Disorders series that is right there on the front page. Let him know the Creep sent you.
