Hello, this is some art that was done for a series of tee shirts. The theme was dime novel spy smut. It was done by combining and manipulating found images and adding some text and texture. The titles were given to me so I apologize for the "orient" one.

This is about a 6 hour painting, with some collage. The picture below is the inspiration, coupled with a painting I saw on someone's blog of a skull is space helmut. I wish I remember where I saw it but I don't.

This was the first illustration I did since graduating college, pretty much. When I say illustration, I mean, it was done on board, using techniques I learned in college, and geared towards print media. Me and a friend challenged each other to get a piece done a month that was in line with the direction we were trying to expand our art. Another short lived but great idea. So this is what I did and it was loosely based on the sketch below. For the most part I just dove in with no plan as to how it would turn out.

This is about a 4ft circle, maybe a little larger. I made the canvas by attaching wood to a circular metal joint. My dad is a welder and he had some. It's like angle iron except in a circle. Then I stretched the canvas and so forth. I think they sell pre-stretched canvas like this now, and maybe they did then too, I don't know. Anyways, I painted this thinking I would never sell it and it was gone in days.

So here is painting that I was focussing on the sillouette. the background is flattened out and many of the shapes are pretty flat.
This painting was a lot of fun and went fairly fast.

The concept here was to create a scarecrow / robot / living dead sort of thing. I wanted him to look like he was result of some hilly billy Dr Frankenstein creating life in his garage. It was all done by hand except for the celtic scrolls in the trees. That was an after thought. It looked a little too simple so I added those for some texture and just to see what it would look like.

This is a portrait I did and it's about 4x3. I'll just say this. Doing a portrait of a baby is not easy.
