Descriptive Critique by Brooks P. DeRyder/ Professor Julie McWilliams. 11/30/15

“Brooks DeRyder has offered up five pieces for critique and as usual his choices of line,his color decisions, and intriguing sense of hermetic space are brilliantly conveyed in each illustration”.

“DeRyder’s constant use of stars implies a kind of religiosity, but that is as ambiguous as the creatures themselves.”

“Overall DeRyder’s ambiguity, the careful drawing, the beautiful shapes and tight construction leave the viewer with a sense of magic and night and peaceful eccentricity”.
