"Decaying Consciousness was the first of two drawings that I had been conceptually experimenting with before heading down the more Hitchcockian path. Originally I had planned for this piece to be a time-lapse triptych, but in the end felt that the psychological intensity was heightened by bringing the figures into the same field. This drawing was created by using my preferred Dura-Lar film and at the time, black Prismacolor Verithin colored pencil. For the white highlights I used a Sakura electric eraser and an occasional dry brush for softening edges. Although working through this piece had its occasional challenges since the drawing materials were a bit foreign, I was extremely happy with the outcome, especially texturally.
The story behind this piece is open for the viewers’ own interpretation, but as you can see with the imagery along with the title, this tormented soul is experiencing a bit of mental decline. Did he or someone commit a heinous crime and was then left behind to cover up the evidence? Or are his parents coming into town and he’s doing a bit of deep cleaning before they get there? I prefer the first, but the second one is starting to grow on me. You decide." - Joseph Crone

ABOUT Joseph Crone:
"My intention is to explore, through hypperrealistic drawing, the cinematic narratives and defining visual styles associated with classic film noir. Putting an emphasis on low-key lighting, plot and mood, each suspended moment is then uniquely scripted and captured through the camera's eye. From here I render the previously filmed still by using colored pencil on frosted acetate, a lithographic technique that I have adapted and fine-tuned over hte past few years. The smooth, semi-transparent quality of the acetate enables the colored pencil to achieve not only a wide range of textural detail, but also higher levels of contrast and saturation often seen in early cinema.
Combining these elements of technique along with the genre's ability to engage the audience helps to compose my vision of a cinematic nostalgia, which I plant to further develop and capture with each subsequent work." - Joseph Crone
