T BONE (2018)
Tempera paint stick and gel stick painting, 24″ x 36″.
My new favorite tempera paint stick on paper painting. Started out trying to paint a goblin with long claws resting his hand under his chin and it turned into a bull head looking at a steak.
SOMEONE’S CALLING (2018)
Tempera paint stick and gel stick poster, 24″ x 36″.
Finally broke through to a cohesive look with my tempera stick experiments. Running out of paper and sticks, and gloss spray. It’s a nice change from breathing acrylic fumes anyway.
Acrylic painting, approx 22″ x 12″.
Canvases tend to disappear pretty quickly, and they’re expensive. One day I wanted to paint and didn’t have a canvas so I used some cardboard. This ugly, abused, discarded, ripped, beat up piece of cardboard lends itself well to this sad, hideous creature coming to terms with its loneliness.
HELLO YOUNG MAN (2017)
Acrylic painting, 14″ x 11″.
Another child art inspired painting. There’s something about drawing objects in front of hands to represent them being held which creeps me out. I started trying to give the figure hair, but I gave up and I guess now it’s just whatever hell it crawled out of.
JUST FOR SATAN (2018)
Tempera stick painting, 24″ x 36″.
I bought a 100ft roll of white paper 24″ wide and have been creating 24″ x 36″ posters with tempera sticks and gel sticks. I’ve made about 10 so far, taking inspiration from child art. This is a parody of Just For Men hair color.
