PJ McQuade – Gandalf Stormcrow – GeeksOUT

 PJ McQuade Gandalf

“Why should I welcome you, Gandalf Stormcrow?”
Gandalf is a badass, plain and simple.  This piece was created for “McKellen Me Softly” a one night only art show last month in NYC in tribute to geek icon and queer hero Sir Ian McKellen, to benefit Geeks OUT, a nonprofit organization out to rally and represent the growing community of geeks who are queer.

Available as a 11×14″ giclee print, signed and numbered edition of 30.

I had a lot of fun creating this image and a breakthrough of sorts. After years of primarily using only digital for the final result, I went back to my roots and created Gandalf and all of the linework in traditional pencil. I think the result is more intimate and gritty, and exciting for me as an artist, hopefully you as a viewer as well. You can really get up in there! The background is digitally colored with traditional watercolors accents. Will keep experimenting this way, feel like it has lots of potential, and ultimately makes my work for “me”.
