This is the beginning of a smaller compliment to Defensive Postures. I don’t know how many pictures of drones there are on the internet, but we are fix in’ to find out. This Cape Weaver picture was irresistible for it’s lighting. I ended up taking the flower pic myself, mostly because it was difficult to find a flower shot with a big old squarish shadow on it.
Shiny, Shiny, Shiny. I’m having fun with this new off shoot of Defensive Postures. Which is strange, because thinking about the illogically couched logical conclusions of the series makes me sad. The titling of this piece was in reference to video games. You yourself escape, you also complete somebodies business plan. the act of getting away powers the machine. In other news, on my vacation I went to Dick’s Classic Garage in San Marcos, Texas and the San Antonio Zoo. Loaded up on Pics.
My 3rd Sushi chart print went on sale online today. Thanks to Vince Torres for putting me in the show and Christopher Piccinich for posting the photo essay I shot for the show.
After Kogyo, and one of my favorite pieces for Animaruprinto No Hitobito, I was never really satisfied with the background of False Flag. It is a hazard when you work on a background and then decide what goes on it. The new series is much more preconceived with multiple trips to photoshop to figure out what goes where. False Flag is how I used to do things to a t: do a background, flip back and forth between pics to do the render. Anyway, I like this better. It lets the figures breathe and it is finally clearly about a game of cat and chicken.
The Defensive Postures series continues with this rabbit inspired piece. There are four rabbits represented, so I called it Rabbits 4. The wasp nest imagery is symbolic of the series central theme. I’m going to probably work it into future paintings.
A new painting in the Defensive Postures series. This one sprung from the picture I was using as a desktop pic since I inadvertently changed it during Honeybear Massacre. I really like the head on the palace guardian lion, and since I used his legs in Honeybear, I figured why not throw in the head. I really like the blue stencil over the city. Have be careful not to overuse it.
I’m pretty much done with this one. After going through the reference pictures, the most striking thing about Cheeto was his torso. The pattern the hairs made had me wanting to do a portrait that didn’t only include the face. I used some lying around pics because the pattern was nicely evident. Also I thought I might be able to make it into a staff wielding action pose. If anybody wants a commissioned portrait, try to get at me soon. I probably can do about 5, if Christmas presents are the goals. I wouldn’t call them exorbinantly expensive present, nor a particularly cheap one, either. Pretty soon, the store will be working on my website. Be looking for a range of 8×10 prints for stocking stuffers.
This is the second one of my high art sushi charts. Look for these in a set of placemats as well as a giclee edition. I should have a few in Cherrywood Art Fair, in which I will have a booth. That show is December 14th. I might have them available by the show in Manor. I’ll keep people posted.
