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 a photo of this Coney Island painting when it wasn't finished and then I finished it, and sold it with out taking another photo. 'Cause thats how I roll. Sorry I haven't posted as much lately. I've been working 6 days a week. I got some stuff in the works though.

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.

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.
