Portrait of @chikinfat

I call this panel the “curse painting” it has been painted over and over in the past six months but never finished. Always hoping I could redeem it, I tried to paint over it. Finally after getting sick of having to paint over thick textured paint, I decided to peel all the extra paint. After peeling all the paint that really didn’t stick, I was presented with this cool little image! Its six months worth of legacy in one flattened timeframe. Looks cool…

"Elephant Empathy"
Recently read articles on the intelligence and level of emotions shown by elephants. I was inspired to create this personal narrative. A young elephant looking over the body of and older elephant. They have been observed to pay their respects to the dead, and stay with the dying.
If you’re curious, here a link to an article that inspired me to create this piece.

Die Fledermaus & Übermensch

These were a fun exercise in creating really quick illustrations. This was a challenge done with my friend and fellow artist, Vincent Nappi. The idea is to take two very iconic superheroes and revisit them in a more 19th century European setting. My approach was more true to archetype, with a few changes here and there. Both characters wear a more traditional 19th century war uniform, and have a different look to their overall silhouette. 

Overall, this challenge forced me to make big decisions and work quickly. There is a lot of potential when limits are set. A good learning experience. 

Both images are 10 X 13 inches and done in pencil and mixed media.
