New Work - Leatherface!

Here's a new painting I recently finished (acrylic paint on 16"x20" canvas).  It's ready just in time for this coming weekend's Days of the Dead horror convention February 1-3 (Friday through Sunday).  I will be in the vendor room with a ton of new horror themed work in addition to my usual zombies and monsters.  I would've posted more pics of the new stuff but apparently I'm a terrible photographer.  I took a bunch of photos that looked fine on the camera but looked awful once I saw them full size.  I am far too lazy to unpack them and retake the photos.  So feel free to make fun of my lack of camera skills this weekend. I can't wait!

The vendor room hours will be:

Friday - 5 p.m. - 11 p.m
Saturday - 11 a.m. - 7 p.m
Sunday - 11 a.m. - 5 p.m

Days of the Dead Feb 1-3

I will be in the vendor room at the Days of the Dead horror convention February 1-3 (Friday through Sunday).  I went last year and had a lot of fun.  This year its actually in Atlanta (as opposed to Peachtree City) so I expect attendance to be better.  I have a hotel room again so I'll be around after hours.  It looks like they have a great guest list. I can't wait!

The vendor room hours will be:

Friday - 5 p.m. - 11 p.m
Saturday - 11 a.m. - 7 p.m

Happy (Belated) New Year!

I wanted to thank everyone for a great 2012.  I meant to post this on new years day (or thereabouts) but just didn't have the time to actually write it out.  Not having the time was somewhat of a theme to 2012.  Between work, family, comics, books, and video games there were times where I didn't pick up a paint brush for a few weeks at a time.

All in all 2012 was fantastic.  Thanks to everyone I met and everyone that had something nice/positive to say.  Thanks to the fine folks at the Village Theatre, Dakota Blue, and Criminal Records for showing off my stuff.  Thanks to Third Half Studios and Urbnpop for all the fun times at different shows/festivals.  And most of all thanks to my wife, family, and friends for the love and support.

2013 is already shaping up to be exciting.  I've got some new stuff in the works.  And I got a new scroll saw so I will be trying my hand at some wood cuts when it warms up soon.  The 1st convention is just around the corner with Days of the Dead in a couple weeks.  I hope to see everyone soon!  THANKS!

New-ish Work - Tardis

I have a few friends that are huge Dr. Who fans.  After hearing them talk about it enough, I finally checked it out.  We're still in our 1st season (so no spoilers please) but I felt inspired enough to paint a Tardis.  Check it out.  It's acrylic paint on a 6"x12" canvas.
