Chuck Palahniuk Portrait, In Progress

Chuck Palahniuk Fight Club portrait in progress

Oh, so close. Sometimes an acrylic underpainting will resolve into a finished portrait on its own, but this portrait of Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk needs a few additional hours of overpainting in oil  before I can say its completed. The difference between continuing to work on a painting in either acrylic or oil is a matter of translucency.  It isn't that acrylics can't be translucent; they just tend to cancel out the color beneath to a higher degree than oil.

After writing his first novel, Chuck decided not to hole himself up for five decades and lock all of his unpublished works in a safe.  Thanks.

White House Reporter Helen Thomas To Appear In S&M Film

S & M Lawn Care poster number one
One of two posters I'm painting for Singletree Production's
S & M Lawn Care. This first version could use revisions in a few days when the oil paint is dry and my reoccuring head cold has abated.

Teaser trailer for the film-

Featuring a Helen Thomas cameo. That Helen Thomas.

I'm in the sketching phase for the poster for the second ROFLcon, which will take place at MIT in Boston. I'll appear as a guest at the conference as well.

See Anderson Cooper's Bloody Pancake

One of three good portraits I finished over the weekend.  I think I've finally shrugged off the block by deciding to paint (not illustrate) no matter what-

Hey Ya, It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Hey Ya, it's Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This is an extensive acrylic underpainting for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day / Outkast / Obama Unicorn painting which I almost finished for this morning.  Still needs one or two oil applications before I can post it on Ebay. Hopefully I can complete the painting before too much of the day goes by.

Nicky Phillips spent five months working on her portrait of the royal siblings; I spend two and a half hours this morning inbetween commenting on goofy videos on Poe-TV and spending half the time in the restroom with an upset stomach reading a $9 book on Impressionism that I bought at TJ Max.  Enjoy.

I've been stuck and depressed for the past few weeks, trying to finish some larger projects but not feeling any inspiration.  So, here's two quick Ebay paintings to try to shake it off-
