Elephant Saxophone / Biomechanicals

John L. Doyle

American 1939-2010
drawing 22" x33"

We have sold a number his framed distinctive drawings over the years, but these unframed ones have been in storage for years.

Doyle was an artist steeped in ethnology and anthropology. This drawing dates from 1972 when he was teaching art in an Illinois high school. We've met several students who recall him with incredible enthusiasm. Speaking of his biomechanical drawings, "He'd do these drawings on his lunch hour and hang them up around the room. They were wild," said one student who is now in advertising art and purchased one for his collection

We consider the sax-elephant is psychic of a Bill Clinton nightmare, a Republican icon out-jazzing him. We have another of a donkey head atop a huge screw.

He left teaching and has had a very successful career. Read about it here. He has had over fifty one man national exhibitions. He has also had the pleasure to participate in more than thirty national and international group exhibitions and has been the recipient of more than thirty two awards. He is listed in Who Was Who in American Art.

Price is each.
