This amazing, colourful, and brilliant original oil paintings book is an extensive collection of nearly every oil and acrylic painting that this master artist has completed during his painting career as of yet. Covering many styles such as abstraction, surrealism, and figurative work, this artist has touched on key ideas and facets intertwined with various styles and time periods of art. His paintings are unique to his own style, and unique in themselves, although he draws inspiration from abstract expressionism, surrealism, and cubism at times.
There are over 140 examples of original abstract artist oil paintings in this book. These are primarily completed as oil on canvas paintings, and many are pure abstraction, while others use form as subject. The use of color is wildly dramatic sometimes, while displaying good use of balance simultaneously. The overall variety of the body of work contained in this book is absolutely phenomenal, if you just want to see a lot of time and effort compressed into one hundred or so pages.
Over the course of 20 years, and with a five year break at one point, this artist pursued oil painting with the highest degree of interest and involvement. He started painting again around 2016, and some of the newer pieces are in the front of the book. Many of the old pieces are also in this book, as well as many early pieces which have never yet been published.
At one point, the artist developed a unique style for creating his paintings called Systemic Hard Edge Abstraction. He approached the design of each painting with a design method that he considered in an almost scientific way. The artist kept a running list of shape combinations, that he later translated into oil paintings. This made an abstract piece that was an accumulation of the best of his drawings over a period of time. Usually, the shapes themselves were in colourful contexts, and enclosed by a rectangle. The forms and designs of these pieces involve the judicious juxtaposition of forms, shapes, and patterns to create a variety that is rooted in ideation by means of drawing and design.

Much of this work was completed during his years of traveling to other cities in the U.S. and walking the streets. He did this street life experience while moving against time, or against the fabric, or grain of society. He saw another side to this world, and experienced many of the hardships that go along with quitting your job early on to travel and paint. At times when he wasn’t traveling, he spent many hours at home painting during the day, and going to see live music at night. Experience and seeing other art for so many years definitely influenced this artist to make highly original contemporary oil painting artistic works.

My Therapeutic Loops
What started as a way to get emotions out on paper, became a way to condition my own mind. This vehicle for conditioning my mind has now become something more than just that.
Collectively, these drawings speak to the abstract. Some may be observed the same way that clouds are observed; with different people seeing different things. Sometimes you may let your eyes relax to see it in a new way; and perhaps they may be read for signs. Either way, when you view the loop drawing book, you will see a self expression unique to this artist.
The author wants to say that they affect timing in his own life. They are to be examined and read, yes, as clouds are read, with little or no intended meaning by the artist. You will also see a few pizza delivery drawings in the series as well. Have fun and enjoy the book.
The loopy ladies are a collection of drawings which started with the artist drawing simple loops to sorta get the things out of his head that that he didn’t want in there. Call it a mind-conditioning exercise, or what have you, it was therapeutic. Either way, through a suggestion of his girlfriend Hara, I began drawing women using the loopy lines. The following collection contains both loopy and normal drawing techniques. The drawings, by being therapeutic, really helped him come to a better place in his life.
Enjoy the book, and have fun looking at all of the loopy ladies contained within it!

Freestyle Poems and Writings by Steven Yessick from 2000-2008. This is some of the best stuff I have ever written. The words are gleaned from an endless cycle of travelling, clubbing, dancing, walking through city streets, and finding truth in settings unusual and unfamiliar. These words were writeen during and between extended periods of travelling to different cities and sort of roughing it. Along the way, a notepad was always at hand in which fragments and stints of these words were gathered. A memoir of blending life and experience in it’s highest forms into a written format was the true aim of this book.
A journey into the core of yessickart’s being with a tech twist. The worlds blend together through the words. A creative writing core designed to explore an abstract vision of certain factories with a picture of future robotics technology exploration.
