This work of symbolistic art was created during the dry spell (1998-2003), which makes it a rare piece indeed. Torn directly from the artist sketchbook, this small pen & ink symbolistic art sketch stands in for an entire year (2001). Hopefully it heralds the start of "The Prolific YEARS" <g>. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included with purchase.

TITLE: "Doodle" © Chris Eisenbraun 2001.

This is the ONLY piece --painting, drawing, etc.-- completed between 1997 and 2002 (so far in 2003 a video rack and numerous web projects are the only completed creations). What can I say? Eric Clapton mentions actually turning to his art for release AFTER he got off the drugs and booze. I can REALLY understand that. It's so incredibly stupid that an artist can so loose touch with their art that they turn to ANYTHING but it for release <jeez>. Well, let me finish building this online gallery up and then we'll see what happens :) Hopefully the artist sketchbook will be overflowing soon enough :)

This is what I would call a therapeutic doodle. A silly little sketch, but it is the first time I have actually picked up the pen and created something original in too many years. A first step, hopefully, with many more to follow :)




Symbolism is a 19th-century movement in which art became infused with a spooky mysticism. It was a continuation of the Romantic tradition.
