My friend and fellow artist Charlie Athanas posted this on Facebook, and I thought you might be interested to see a piece I did at a WildClaw Theatre fundraising event called “Dance of the Demented” in 2010. As you will note, I did a much looser style of painting here and I was pleased with the result. Let me know what you think of it?
Here’s the original photograph:
And here’s the painting (a black and white version of it):
And here it is in color (sorry for the angle of the image):
And here’s an XCU on the face:
I want to say a special thanks to the Imperial Guards who protected me at Dallas Star Wars Fan Days:
And here’s Lando Calrissian’s Doppelganger:
I am the proud new owner of my friend, author Jay Bonansinga’s, new book (image below):
Jay and I were judges together last fall for the 10-Minute Horror Play Competition DeathScribe 2010 for Chicago’s critically acclaimed WildClaw Theater. If you’re like me, you’re already firing up the popcorn for the next episode of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”
My art will be part of a wonderful horror art exhibit, Maleficium, at Kosart Effects Gallery in Westmont, IL, running October 29th through December 2nd. I will be joined by some top names in art, including Doug Klauba, Bill Reinhold, Charlie Athanas, Ray Frenden, Jason Seiler, Ben Templesmith, Jill Thompson, Tony Akins, Menton Matthews III and too many more to mention. I am hoping my Chicagoland friends will join us for the grand opening 6:30 p.m. to Midnight, which promises to be a great time with plenty of cool raffle items (including some exclusives from me) but if you can’t make it, you can see the art by appointment only until December 2nd. Just call 630.310.8353 to book a time.
I hope to have some more fun announcements for you very soon.
Thanks as always for reading,
