New art composition from TRUNKS ART: "Where is the life?!" The latest in a series centered around PHYSICS!

Boise, Idaho - February 15, 2020 - "Where is the life?" (#4/12) - Contrary to what you might think as rational, the universe is 99.9999999% empty space and that includes me, you, that $6 triple venti soy no foam latte you splurged for and the cell phone you're reading this on. The remaining 0.0000001% is entirely made up of 118 elements like helium, sulfur, and copper that are only differentiated by the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons that comprise their make up.  So weird.  Although MY body contains an inordinate amount of gold, most human bodies are comprised of about 60 of these elements with only oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen making up 96% of us! So, if we're mostly empty space and charged, subatomic particles, where does compassion, desire, sacrifice, and love come from?  Where IS the life?

Einstein Notes and Details from TRUNKS ART!







Boise, Idaho - January 21, 2020 - Just thought I'd share a little of the thought behind my last composition, "Why is Einstein so famous?"  The scribbles you see there are basically how I think.  The subsequent pictures in this deck are some close ups because I pride myself on clean, concise details.  Thanks for checking out my post!  You can find me on Instagram (chucktrunks). 💖💖💖

TRUNKS ART asks, "Why is Einstein so famous??"


Boise, Idaho - January 20, 2020 - "Why is Einstein so famous?" (#3/12) - Albert Einstein is so famous that even after more than a hundred years since his astounding contributions were published, you can STILL say, "Way to go, Einstein!" in a snotty, mocking tone when some poor sap makes an innocent mistake. Max Planck, Ernest Rutherford, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg and others are Mount Rushmore worthy theoretical physicists deserving of equal notoriety but you won't find their mugs (or wagging tongues) on t-shirts at Ross or T.J. Maxx.  So, what separates Einstein from this illustrious group? In 1919, a total solar eclipse proved his general theory of relativity to be correct: massive objects cause a distortion in the space-time continuum which is felt as gravity.  When the stars positioned behind the sun could be seen as Einstein predicted, he became world famous overnight and is still the only scientist to receive a ticker tape parade in New York City (1921).  So, to my hero Albert, I say (without a trace of mockery or disrespect), "Way to go, Einstein!"

I'm often asked about my process for creating these graphic compositions...







Boise, Idaho - January 4, 2020 - I'm often asked about my process for creating graphic compositions.  It's hard to explain because it's soooo unconventional (nuts) and pretty much the same since I was 8 years old.  Step 1 - create a tiny sketch in less than one minute.  Step 2 - immediately start drawing and painting without concern for background, foreground OR THE SKETCH.  Step 3 - Pull it all together in the eleventh hour after putting in 80 to 120 hours.  I included some close ups to show you how OCD I am when it comes to crisp details.  Thanks for checking out my instagram (chucktrunks) and my website!
