there's no such thing as leftover paint!

I always put out more paint than I need, so I try to make use of it by doing little sketches. oil on illus board, a little bigger than postcard size.

christmas and beastie boys

I have a piece in the upcoming show at Gallery 1988 on Melrose in LA. The show is a tribute to the beastie boys and everything beastie boys related, as the flyer plainly demonstrates. I wanted to do something related to the song "Girls" because it's awesome.

A sketch....

And the finished piece. Actually, the photo here isn't quite finished, and the photo is very low-quality. But I had to rush this off to the gallery yesterday and wasn't able to get a proper scan. Sigh....

Also, since its Christmas, here's a really embarrassing photo I took of myself for reference. Sometimes in a pinch its hard to find people to model for you, so the 10-second self-timer on your digital camera becomes quite a handy device.
Merry Christmas! Hope to see everyone at the show!

a problematic gentleman, wip.

here's a work in progress. think JC Leyendecker as a Victorian vampire. the final sketch has his hands in it, which I think is what really makes this type of composition work.

and a detail, because the face came out really sweet:
