Inspired by this quote:
The architecture of the Minotaur’s heart is ancient. Rough hewn and many chambered, his heart is a plodding laborious thing, built for churning through the millennia. But the blood it pumps—the blood it has pumped for five thousand years, the blood it will pump for the rest of his life—is nearly human blood. It carries with it, through his monster’s veins, the weighty, necessary, terrible stuff of human existence: fear, wonder, hope, wickedness, love. But in the Minotaur’s world it is far easier to kill and devour seven virgins year after year, their rattling bones rising at his feet like a sea of cracked ice, than to accept tenderness and return it.

My name is Evan Essmyer. Art and yoga are my biggest passions in life besides my wife and daughter. They are the reason I am who I am and why I do what I do. To me, any art form is beautiful. In school I mainly focused on acrylic work as well as ceramic work. As I have grown I have a huge focus on watercolor and ink work.
