4 Way Calling…

PhoneSs2

While taking a slight break from my work, to watch the kids full time, while my wife is out of town for a week on business, I played around with some of my older works. I had done enough works with girls and phones (generic looking iPhones mostly), and the four panel structure has been friendly to me lately. So while I had a moment between naps, which was hard to come by with a 4 year-old and a 7 month old, but was able to make this 4 way long distance call!

Distant Friends…

What would and iPhone user say to a rotary phone user?

Vintage Thoughts…

I’ve posted this picture a few time on some of my other social sites and realized as I was about to post it here, that it would be too redundant and it needed something new or different. I simply gave it that vintage tint!

Wild Animals…

Here are the three animals boards I have been working on, finished! I’ve really come to enjoy this “canvas”, it’s a nice break, and challenge from your regular rectangular canvas. I used a lot of acrylics, and a clear glossy spray for a nice shiny protective finish.

What Animals…

Working on some new animalistic skateboards. I really like the skateboard template, it really allows for a lot of creativity. A few more sessions and they will be ready for gloss and a professional photo op!

Pop Thoughts…

Sometimes I spend too much time thinking about things, this piece though, didn’t take much thinking. I was going to post the one original,the top left one, but then realized how boring that would be. I then decided to do this Warhol kind of effect to it and it definitely makes it a more fun piece to look at.

Liberty…

I started this piece the same time as my previous one. They started as a series and I am more than thrilled that I actually got around to finishing them, as a series! I Love This City!

Ghost Towers…

I started this canvas over a year ago, when I was doing a lot of paintings and drawings of New York City skylines and bridges. Like my usually ways, I started the painting and then abandoned it for a while. I had an Art showing at my place a few weeks ago with a great turn out. Met a lot of new interesting people, sold some work, and got a few commissions. This was one of the commissions, for an engineer I met, who liked my bridge works, buts most of them are black and white and they wanted something a little more vibrant.

Smoking Skull…

   This board came to me as I was sketching out a few other boards, mainly animal themed boards, you can check them out at my FB page, this one though was speaking to me. Once I sketched it out on the board – I had to first strip it of some stickers, sand it a bit, and then put a few coats of gesso on it – I just started painting. I didn’t use many colors, but I used a lot of paint, I spent about six, seven hours painting, and I was quite happy with how much I had done by that point, and called it finished. Well of course I had to put the gloss finish! I’m looking for a few more skate decks to paint and customize!

Mad Men…

I am quite happy with the way this turned out, and I know there are a lot of Mad Men fans out there, but I have to admit I haven’t watched the show. Had a lot of fun with this piece and learned a lot while doing it as well. I have been trying to find a way to work with the computer a little more often with my work. I still do all the drawing by hand, but after that I take it to the computer and finish it up with Illustrator and Photoshop. I have a few more of these on the way so be on the look out!
