Long Time No See

Theres a certain amount of comfort in not having cable TV or the "Intra-Web" at home. You get things done, you get to play more and you can hone your supernatural abilities like flight or being able to "Freeze Frame" in mid air. Ok, those last two are bullshit, but you get the idea. Anyhow, heres a few things that have shown up around my apartment:

These are a couple of oil paintings that I've recently used to cover up perfectly nice white canvases. The nude w/skull was pretty fun cause I really didn't know what it was going to be when pigment first met the cotten. My goal was simply to paint a decent nude (not sure if I hit that bench mark, but thats hardly the point). Was she was introduced to the world, I knew it needed something more. Why a skull? Cause woman will fuckin kill you... nah! its nothing as deep as that. I just saw what looked to be an eye socket and then went from there.

The lower guy was fun cause I painted all but the final highlights with the image upside-down. I knew I could trick the paint to run if I promised them ultimate nirvana at the end of their journey. Fortunately, oil paint is more gullible than those who give their live savings to televangelist. It turned out pretty fun though.

So the top one is an illustration my Lead Illustrator, Russel did in pencil and I painted in Photoshop. Chucky there was drawn in pencil by my 3D Modeler Josh and again, I painted in Photoshop.
