3/4/15 - Cardinal Sin.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, shellac, pencil, polyurethane on watercolor paper. 8” x 10”.
My old painting teacher Ken Hoffman used to paint anthropomorphic animals. Also, my grandmother loved cardinals even though they were dicks. This one’s dedicated to both of them for different reasons.


       

3/3/15 - Wicked Weasel Wrangles Weak Woodpecker.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, pencil, polyurethane, shellac on watercolor paper.

This is based on real life. I couldn't make this up. Okay, I made up the bomb. I admit that. And I made up the goggles. Oh, and the weasel probably wasn't giving a thumbs up because, you know, they don't have opposable thumbs. Artistic license, yo. 

3/1/15 - Marching Lion.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, pencil, polyurethane, shellac on watercolor paper.

In like a lion or something. And yeah, I was in marching band. I admit it.

2/28/15 - Chicken Chewer.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, pencil, shellac, polyurethane on watercolor paper. 8” x 10”.

I’ve been craving fried chicken for approximately 2 weeks. Bring me some and I will love you forever.

2/27/15 - One to Beam Up.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, pencil, polyurethane, shellac on watercolor paper. 8" x 10".

I had an entirely different piece I started working on this morning. It might see the light of day eventually, but this seemed more important. As a kid I used to watch Star Trek religiously. And, like most, I especially loved Spock. The cool, logical bastard. RIP Leonard Nimoy. 

2/25/15 - Piqued Pandercorn Performs Prestidigitation.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, glitter, pencil, polyurethane, shellac on watercolor paper.

Playing for the lowest common denominator, alliterating for an audience.

Acrylic paint, sharpie, pencil, polyurethane, coffee on watercolor paper.

This began life as a coffee stain. A rage inducing coffee stain. Happy Monday!

Ramblings about this year's art & models & whatnot

So, each month of this year's art project has a sort of loose theme to it. I'm probably not going to reveal what each and every theme is. I'm just saying that themes exist. 

Anyway, I'm debating doing a "real people" month. It would involve folks posing for pieces. In return, the posers would get whatever piece they pose for, and the piece would end up in this year's art book. I did a bit of this last time around, where I mainly turned friends of mine into super villains. This time I'm thinking, if I end up doing it, it will be a bit different. I'm not entirely sure how yet. Just..different. It probably won't happen for a few months, and it might not end up happening at all. Some of it depends upon a) interest and b) my ability to find a month's worth of victims,. Er, I mean, models. Yeah. Models. 

Anyway, that's about it. f you'd be interested in seeing something like that or if you'd be interested in posing (especially if you're somewhat local) let me know.
