The Dark Ages
© 1970-2002 Todd VerBeek
This retrospective spans a third of a century, and includes works which required painstaking digital restoration, due to the dubious, non-archival materials used. The tour begins with Todd's early experiments using the medium of crayons on manila paper; it follows with his flirtations with construction paper; it looks at the marker-drawn comicbooks he created in later elementary school and the growth of his figure rendering in middle school; it samples some of his scattered work in high school; it glances at his semi-amateur photojournalism and illustration in college; it peeks at his so-called "dark" inter-collegiate years; and it provides an overview of recent works in art school, where he's actually showing some promise.
