Believe it or not...

i just wrapped this up.
i'm fairly pleased with it.
"The Greatest American Hero"
i like the show, i remember watching it as a kid
alongside other great shows like
the incredible hulk
magnum p.i.
plus it had a catchy theme song.

the process was fully executed in
illustrator and photoshop.
the goal for this piece was to create an
image that has the appearance of a
screen print poster.
but it still feels digital to me.
screw it.
i'm just going to screen print
the image onto chip board
next week.
just a simple 2 color print.

how about that?

Zombie Politics

who doesn't like zombies?
well i think it's a fun subject matter.
i have to admit that this feels
like one of my more successful paintings
from last term.
it only took an hour and1/2.
and just to clear the air
i really don't have any animosity or strong feelings
against mccain.
i just think he looks half dead already.
so here it is
Zombie Vampire McCain

to start; here's a painting

final above
detail below

more process

this is a portrait of Hunter S. Thompson.
he used to write things.
he was a journalist.
he killed himself.
by shooting himself in the head.
the title of the piece is
"bat country"
i also included some process images as well.
thanks for looking.

blah blah blah

okay. in the past i've been reluctant to show work.
partly due to my lack of confidence.
i feel like i have a lot more to learn about making art.
and the other reason
is well,
this is the internet.
once something is published on the web
it's there forever. as data being passed along
from one hard drive to the next.
in effect the internet and everything on it
is a time capsule.
so think about it
the stuff you post onto facebook
for example
photos, status updates, videos
is being cached and transmitted,
shared and catalogued.
you're creating a brand out of yourself.
through a social networking site.
so with this in mind
i want to create a positive brand for myself.
so that i may have a successful career.
to start this branding process
i suppose i should start posting some work.
and i hope you don't think it's crap.
because it will forever be included
in this 21st century time capsule.
