New-ish Painting - El Luchador on the Moon

Here's a new-ish painting that I just finished a week or 2 ago. It's the 2nd painting with this character. Check out the 1st here.  I think it's one of my favorite paintings I've done recently.  And thanks to a very nice person at the L5P Halloween Festival, it's found it's way to a nice new home.

I don't think I'm done with this character yet.  So I'm pretty sure I'll have some more luchador paintings in the future.  Now I just need to name him and come up with his story.  Any suggestions?

Re: L5P Halloween Festival

Huge thanks to everyone that made it out to the Little 5 Points Halloween Festival on Saturday.  It was a blast.  Already looking forward to next year.  For those people I talked to about commissioned paintings, please send me an email with your idea/photo/sketch.

Next up for me is the Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp on Saturday November 5th.  Time to start restocking.

New Painting - Zombie Couple!

Here's a new-ish painting I finished recently.  It's acrylic paint on a 16"x20" canvas.

I had it at the EAV Strut a couple of weeks ago. I sold this one but I 'm working on another that should be ready just in time for the upcoming Little 5 Points Halloween Festival (10/22/11).  I may do a couple different versions with different hairstyles.  I can customize it too so let me know if you want one. Send me a photo and I can make one just for you!

New Painting - El Luchador!

Here's a new-ish painting I finished recently.  It's acrylic paint on a 16"x20" canvas.


I had it ready just in time for the EAV Strut a couple of weeks ago.  I had a few people stop and ask if I was channeling my inner Phantom Troublemaker.  Originally this was going to have the Mexican flag as the background.   After I painted it (from memory), I realized I had actually painted the  Hungarian flag.  Whoever ever heard of a Hungarian luchador?  So much for using visual references.  So I ended up using colors from the mask instead.  There is a line in red sharpie just under the wording that's got to have at least 6 coats of paint on it before I was able to cover it up.  The day after drawing the B! logo it occurred to me that I may have just invented the Big Lots logo.  Luckily I hadn't (visual references!).  I have another painting using the same character that I'm just about finished with.  It turned out pretty well and I'll post it as soon as it's done.
