April 2015 kept my hands moving nonstop. Went to a nude art show where clothing was optional for everyone. Managed to capture a disgruntled bdsm model, a spirited dancer, and a DJ with turntables that just managed to hide his unmentionables.              Around this time I had art friends visiting from out of […]

Still playing a bit of blogpost catch up – March 2015 was filled with lots of Free Art Friday creations and some experimenting for art pieces to sell at venues like conventions and group shows. First off, here are some sticker labels I enjoy working on. The face of the paper combined with the waxy […]

A contest had been announced calling all local artists to art up their best villain to grace the flyers for the Villains Show coming in October. I had to give it a couple of tries. My first stab at it seemed a bit tame and didn’t completely focus on the villain:         So I […]

Poe Elementary Auction Art!

Some of the gym kids attend the local Poe Elementary School and I was approached to do some art for their annual auction. First off, I love Edgar Allan Poe and to do art for a school named after him is a no brainer. After getting photos of two groups of classes, I set out […]

“THE PANCAKES & BOOZE ART SHOW IS AN LA BASED ARTIST MOVEMENT THAT STARTED IN 2009 AND HAS QUICKLY SPREAD TO OVER 20+ CITIES THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA.” …and it came to Houston, Texas and what a wild time it was. I had six pieces in the show and also had a live art station. Can’t […]

DECEMBER: Foray Into Free Art Friday Territory

While perusing the webs, I stumbled across an international event called Free Art Friday. Some folks in Paris would hide art near fountains or in parks for the general public to find and enjoy! Found art posted and tagged on Instagram. I fell in love with the idea and then found we had our own […]

LATE NOVEMBER: Animation Nation Art Show

This was an amazing group show. Anything goes as long as the subject matter (however the artist chooses to translate it) has been animated in some format at some point in time. I got to put my Star Wars inspired Lady Vader in this show as well as a host of new pieces.  Lady Vader […]

These scribblings and scribblings have no real place to fall under. Some scraps here and there, spurts of creativity, pencils moving across surfaces with random destinations in sight. The featured image is an idea for a show that was coming up. More info on that image in an upcoming post. A fellow artist, Rudy Campos […]

Mid September: FUNEMPLOYMENT ANIMATION

A friend from college is an avid film maker (check out Christine Chen in the sidebar area) and she wrote a portion of her film to feature an animated stylized action sequence for me to do. In my personal experience, animation takes ALL engines so the other art I was working on had to come […]

East End Studio Gallery hosted a Hello Kitty show and I managed to finish a few pieces to enter. I love mixing/mashing characters together and couldn’t shake the idea of a Hello Kitty meets Totoro. Here are a few progress pics: I also love Mulan and wanted to do a Samurai Kitty: The next sculpt […]
