3G's Show at 1988

Just a quick post. The gallery 1988 is having a show entitled, the 3G's. Its an art show where everything has to do with my all time favorite three films, the Goonies, Gremlins and Ghostbusters. You can check out some of the art at the link below or a few of the artists in my inspiration well have posted a few of their pieces on their personal blogs.

Check it out!

First painter artwork

Below is my first attempt at using Corel Painter. The learning curve is a little bigger than I expected, but it does look a lot like my early acrylic paintings used to, so its accuracy to the medium is pretty close.

Finally, art on an art blog!

I realize that for an artists blog there has been an awful lot of " words " lately. I apologize for that, I just haven't had a lot of Non-Disclosure Agreement art that I could share recently. However, that is all about to change! Bring on the sketchbook art dump!

The next pic is a drawing of myself as an old man, done for an art blog.

Then this is a character concept for my buddy, Tyler Rhoads, web strip LFM. This kat is Neal.

Yeah, that was a little anti-climatic. So, in an effort to promote more content check out some of my links on the right. They are the blogs and websites of writers and artists of various mediums and styles that I find inspirational and check on a regular basis.

Also, the past couple of days I have been trying to pull together a collection of vintage Garbage Pail Kids. So far I have won about 400+ of them on ebay for about 15 bucks including shipping (so much for resale value). While disgusting, a lot of the artwork on some of the earlier cards is pretty impressive stylistically and shows how lacking the current run of Garbage Pail Kids is in artistic quality. So with that in mind, click here for your moment of Zen.
