8x10" portraits. I'm not going to dig up the text explaining my goal for this one, because I'm 98% sure no one is viewing this shit.

Should have gone with the "Let It Be" album cover.

Already did that, zombified. I wanted to do something more original.

The Art Forum is kind of funny in the sense that people are more likely to comment on a thread if there's something in it that they don't like or to offer criticism of some kind. Also personal attacks.

So, it may be a bit discouraging, but, a lack of comments is generally a sign that you're doing something right in your art, because if people had anything negative to say about it, trust me, they would.

That being said, I really like the pin-up series that you've done, and it's always good to see a bear with chainsaw hands.

Thank you for your wisdom. You have a good point.

Zombie Beatles revisited a couple years later. This time they're on 12x12" canvases. I've been stretching my own like a madman lately. I can save a lot of money and make better product than those paper-mache shits at Wal-Mart.

In the middle of a second run on the last one, I tried this black fade in with some cheap-ass dollar paint (really lacking opacity) and I decided to paint it without the industrial layer. Experimentation is what it's all about though, right?

8x10" canvas - Fidel Castro - Don't know much about his politics, but I know he has a killer beard and enjoys a fine cigar.

Here's a better image of one of those huge pin-ups from before. I think they were something like 28x38 inches each.

Larger charcoal drawings. The idea was to create a flow between the sections. I also focused on angles and architecture with the subject of each piece. There's a Gundam, a car, a building and a sculpture.
