Mr. Crazy Bones Encounters Ms. Alien Head by elftantra
Mr. Crazy Bones Encounters Ms. Alien Head

Oil on Canvas, 30 cm x 40 cm (approx. 12" x 16"), 2016

In this small work, there are 4 identities;  Mr. Crazy Bones on the right, Ms. Alien Head to the left, Atmospheric  Chakra Monster up top, and in the mid background is Mr. Crazy Bone’s own ego.

Ms. Alien Head is startled that the shaman Mr. Crazy Bones has spotted her despite the typical glamour apparatus which usually subverts the attention of her abductees.  Mr. Crazy Bones, having a long history with greys through disciplined dreaming practice, uses his powerful awareness to detect her form out of the cloud of orb and bubble like camouflage.  The gender of Ms. Alien head, of course, is only a device, beckoning a memory in the shaman of his childhood playing Ms. Pacman in the arcade.  This alien head is the type that behaves in the dream space much like a balloon–inflatable, buoyant, and in this case budding out a second baby alien head.

In a rare turn of events, Mr. Crazy Bones has managed to do the impossible, distracting Ms. Alien Head!  In his right hand he has brought a Poke-Ball, which he will use to catch the sneaky bastard.

Part of the method employed by the shaman to trick the alien is by losing his human form almost entirely.  He still retains hands and an essential skull like head, though it has begun to grow grasshopper legs in back, which, in a cricket like manner, are preparing to produce a sound by rubbing against a long mono-antenna.  A large red object appears where the hind brain would be.  The function or nature of the object is unclear; is it a tumor, a sinus, an organ?    Much like the head, Mr Crazy Bone’s body has begun to differentiate.  Though he still has human hands, he now sports a multitude of arthropod inspired legs, a shell on his back encrusted with various hard and gem like textures, and multi hued rubber tubes cycling in and out of his body, serving as a liquid coolant based upon the technology of PC Gaming Rigs.

Meanwhile, Atmospheric Chakra Monster is engaging with the deeply unconscious layer space of the entire scene.  Its  projections include soft, fleshy iterations as well as hard shark tooth /claw iterations.  One of the hard projections pierces its own body, indicating a self intersecting, recursive nature.

Mr. Crazy Bones, though focused on Ms. Alien Head, is beginning to reciprocate some of the harder toothy forms of Atmospheric Chakra Monster.  The shaman’s head instinctively begins to disassemble into finer filaments as a means to perceive the unconscious entity.

In the background, a faint ego of the Shaman focuses in parallel on the alien.

The pivotal question in this moment:

Will Mr. Crazy Bones succeed  in turning the alien into the abductee?

Inner-Space Invader by elftantra
Inner-Space Invader

Oil on Canvas, 11.8" x 15.75"/ 30cm x 40cm, 2016

This vignette resulted in an entity with both an alien and familiar composition; at once exhibiting plant, animal, marine, mineral, and extraterrestrial qualities. Like a hermit crab its "brain" is encased in a shell. Its brain casing is transparent, revealing neurological folds and harder crystalline structures which compose its mind. The exposed face of the creature consists of an illuminated central eye, its "consciousness", reflecting onto morphing layers of material which drip down the center. It has 4 short appendages with red lenses, most likely another form of eye.
The creature hovers while releasing steam. Two long appendages curl behind, terminating in pink gelatinous masses similar to what one might find in certain carnivorous plant species.
Against a smattering of stars in the background, the sharp reflections on its shell resemble a constellation, revealing a celestial origin.

The Moth Catcher by elftantra
The Moth Catcher

Oil on Canvas, 30 cm x 40 cm (approx. 12" x 16"), 2015, Available


This work was built during the Halloween season and found much influence from sentiments surrounding the holiday.  The result was a ghoulish "monster" of sorts. In this psychologically bed headed portrait, a creature sets in a trance; his eyes devolved and vestigal, his third eye open but hardened and in the form of the third eye of the character, Madara from the Naruto Shippuden anime series.  Whereas typically the third eye opens into greater awareness, this third eye Madara used to cast the Infinite Tsukuyomi, which created a completely delusional dream world.  The result is an awareness existing in corporeal introspection.  The creature's mind sprouts, on the left side, an emerging face, grinning.  To the right side of the head, red tentacles and fingers intertwine--a collaboration of invertebrate and vertebrate consciousness cooperatively handling paint brushes of the sort used to build the art work itself.  The neck and throat bristle with random thorns, as from a rose or the upper portions of a beak sprouting from its flesh.  The neck itself disassociates into layers of membranous material, terminating upon an abstracted base of convoluted forms composing its body. The nose is virtually non existant, more a sinus reiterative of the shape of the third eye.  Set against the exposed teeth peering out of the thick, meaty cheeks, a skeleton like impression results.  This impression sets behind a visceral set of lips and tongue, which is the creature's prime seat of awareness.  Sensual, organic, the tongue organ hangs, meaty, and with consciousness of a sea cucumber.  It illuminates at the tip, drawing the attraction of a nearby moth--with mystery of purpose.

Interests
I have gotten professional photographs made of some of my newer works and now available for print through both Threyda www.threyda.com/artandgoods/co… and Redbubble www.redbubble.com/people/elfta…

There has been demand for print options outside of deviantart and so I make those available to you.  Redbubble in particular will have the widest selection of my works.  Threyda's quality of large prints is very good however, so check both out I'm sure you can find something right for you.

Thanks everyone for the continuously positive vibe and spiritual support.
