The Viral Video Paintings Are Google / YouTube Commissions

I've been keeping it confidential that the recent viral video meme subject paintings were actually Google commissions for their YouTube offices in the Roppongi Hills - Mori Tower complex in Tokyo, and waiting for photos of the paintings at their destination before revealing that online.  Unfortunately, the paintings were hung up in Japanese customs the week before last, and the delay means that I won't be able to post the pics until sometime in the middle of January. I'm starting two additional paintings for the office in Tokyo, and it's possible I may be starting another set for a different YouTube location afterwards.

Both of these newer studies are for the Tokyo YouTube offices.  The studies are 5 by 7 inches;  the finished paintings should be somewhere around 30 by 40 inches.

A new 'I Like Turtles' painting.  This is my fourth or fifth painting of zombie Jason-

My first painting of the uber-cute 'Cat hugging a teddy bear'-

I'll start the larger versions of these two paintings sometime next week.
