Barnaby Ward has the much-desired gift of continuously producing mesmerizing pieces of illustration perfection. Living on the island paradise of Barbados, Barnaby has illustrated graphic novels, scenes from “Alice in Wonderland” and has drawn a great deal of very attractive women. “I like drawing pictures of girls with odd companions or in odd locations” as he puts it. “It doesn’t get much deeper than that.” Though he downplays it, his work is ripe with scenes that are mysteriously thought provoking and beautiful to look at. He cites “kitties” and a hatred of leaf blowers as sources of influence. Barnaby has a limited edition print release, “Humphrey II,” this month from INPRNT and will have a piece in next month’s show, “Poster Peepshow: The Art of the Pin Up” at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA.
