You do make me want to viciously attack a canvas...it's been a while since I've painted something.

I have some sad sad news, i did go to take a picture of the pink sculpture, but it has fallen and one of his hands has broken off, i probably won't fix him, but i will take pictures of him eventually

in the meantime i just discovered i can email pictures from my phone to myself, so i'll be uploading art that i had pictures of on my phone for a bit, so excuse the quality

heres my latest stencil, it's a two colored stencil, heres a pic of the line work before i sprayed it

and here's a horrible picture of the painting i'm currently working on, right now i have all the painting and line work done, and there will be stenciled mechanical geometric shapes where the missing piece of his arm is, and coming out from underneath his shirt

looks much better in real life, that's a little face spewing blue stuff on his hand

all day and nothing? what gives, show me some love!

Here's another shitty camera phone picture, painting on wood i did a couple months ago, was supposed to be poking fun at this painting, can't remember if it was da vinci or michealengelo, think the paintings called Godsend, (i could be 100% off base about that don't quote me) but it's the one where gods hand is reaching out to adams hand to pass knowledge, i thought it would be funny if a epic game of rock paper scissors commenced

and on a side note i've recently come to the conclusion that the Fall of Troy is one of the greatest hardcore bands ever.

here's a close up on the one hand because i'm quite proud of this, considering at the time that was the first time i had painted in almost 4 months, so i thought it turned out rather well

and why the fuck is the picture of that stencil so crisp and clear compared to everything else i took on my phone, it's crazy

heres a stencil in progress for you guys, it's mostly finished, just feel like i need to do more with it, just haven't quite figured that out yet

and since my brother has yet to find the cord to our camera, i'm reduced to shitty camera phone pictures for awhile until i get money for a new cord, but lack of cord is not enough to stop me! I will still post art, the picture quality just might be horrid :)

thanks, but i think it's natural for an artist to be unnaturally hard on themselves, i dunno why, stuff i used to think was good i really dislike now. Glad you like my stuff though :)

and anyone can draw, it just takes practice

Wow, crazy graf style man. Nice work. I love the stencils. Nice style. Keep it up, May I suggest, use acetate for your stencils, it'll last longer than paper or card, is more flexible/durable and is easier to cut out. It's not expensive either.

oh my god that's such a great idea!! God damn i could kiss you if technology was a wee bit more advanced. I do alot of screen printing so i work with acetate all the time i can't believe i've never thought of that, i feel really dumb.

my only concern is how durable would it be, the ideal cardboard i use is this grey flat stuff that's about as thin as paper but is incredibly durable, would acetate hold up to wear and tear that well? Feel like once you make a cut if pressures put on it, the cut will keep expanding

No that's a very good point. It's not as thin as your thinking it is, it bends and flexes around the stencil. Grab a piece of acetate and try and rip it in half, then judge for yourself. If your not happy, then you can stick to your current method. Also a good thing about it is that, if need be, you can wash the spray paint off the stencil. It takes a while and a bit of elbow greese. but it is possible. I use acetate for all my stencils now and I haven't had one problem yet.

no i know what acetate is i use it all the time just not for stencils, i know it's durable, i just get into some pretty intricate detail sometimes, and you know how if you get something plastic and make a little cut in it, than pull on the two sides of the cut, it just rips it bigger. I dunno that's my only concern

Don't get me wrong i'm not shitting on your idea, i've seen your stencils their pretty tight, and i'm more than excited to give it a try. My first love is painting but my passion is in stencils

That's good to hear. I didn't think you were shitting on my idea and I know where your coming from. I've seen your above stencils so I know how detailed they can get. As long as you cut them right and don't put too much strain on the stencils, it should be cool.
