Man, I love painting. It's a nice break from all the digital work I do... a lovely respite.

Lately, my painting has turned to more mixed media work. I do a combination of acrylic, pastel, spray paint, acetone transfers. It's fun to experiment. I think my digital work has influenced the way I paint. Because I work primarily in illustrator, I think in basic shapes and that's carried over to my painted pieces.

This is my contribution to Ballyhoo: The SideShow Show

4-Color Gocco Screenprint on Vintage paper. I like to rummage through used book store's throw away bin. The paper is from a book called "Gleanings and Groupings from A Pastor's Portfolio" by Rev. Joshua N. Danforth,1852. No doubt the good pastor is spinning in his grave by my befoulment on the pages of his book.
children's mural

I donated this mural to The Children's Arts Project in Cornelius, NC (just outside Charlotte).

I meant to take step-by-step photos but forgot. I first spray painted the bamboo with a stencil I created. Then I painted white over the ares that the panda would be. Lastly, I painted the black. The black is chalkboard paint so the kids doodle or write on it. (you can see someone already did some squiggles on two of the circles)

It was a pleasant experience. The project's director pretty much gave me full reign to do what I wanted.

Egghead Munny
A few months ago I was invited to participate in the Bear and Bird gallery's first show, "For Love of Munny". I just finished mine today. I used sculpey to fill in the arm sockets, create a trunk, and form the 2 birds. I made the nest out of raffia fiber I found at World Market.

It was a lot of work but I had a great time with it.

Sweet Tooth and Candy Corn,
So in love but Tooth is torn.

If Candy leaves, Tooth's heart will break.
If she stays, he'll throb and ache.
