Drizzle Can

an artist from montana wanted to trade work with me. a lot of his paintings are just like jackson pollock with spatters he applies with a piece of scrap wood. so i painted his tools.

Compact Fluorescent

these bulbs aren't as amazing as advertized. it takes more energy to make them than regular bulbs and its costs way too much to recycle them. they have mercury in them and when lots of them start getting thrown out, there's going to be a huge stockpile of toxic waste. they're still better than incandescent bulbs but they're not as perfect a lot of energy conscious people are saying. i should have painted it a little more scary or foreboding looking.

Bear Cub

a younger version of my first bear. his claws aren't as threatening.

and since we're on the subject of bears, i thought i'd add these pages from my character design portfolio.

Paintings Trade Page

i added a new section to my free paintings website where you can see what i've received in return for my free paintings. people want to trade with me all the time. i'm hoping for a yacht or mansion offer soon.

Fender Jazz Bass

bass, not a guitar. though i have incorrectly painted guitars with four pegs before.

Free of Style

i've posted late a few times recently because i've been working a lot on another project. i'm in a dance group called 5LMT [] and we've been putting together a two day dance convention. it's called Free of Style [].

i did the web design for the project and i wrote all the music that everyone will be dancing to at the event. the 15 hip-hop/dance tracks are going to be my third album titled "Free of Style".

i'm really excited that a lot of famous choreographers will be teaching to my music. and its going to be at pittsburgh's giant convention center. i can't describe all the details of the event quickly and chances are you ended up at my blog reading this because you like art or freeloading. but if i've got some readers out there that are dancers or might be interested, go check out the site. oh yeah and the design i made for my album cover is also a t-shirt that we'll have at the event.


i made him fill up the canvas to look as fat as possible.

Snail with Cartoons on TV

darn i've been slow to post lately. its only appropriate that my tardy painting is a snail.

this one was supposed to be a tv with any cartoon on it. i went with tom and jerry cause they're classic.

i love the colors on this guy.

i'm over an hour late posting this so its on the wrong day. i guess sunday gets to feel special with two posts. speaking of two paintings, this giraffe would fit better if it was on two canvases hung one above the other. maybe if i get another giraffe request, i'll make it a diptych.

this guy is a little different than i usually paint turtles. i think the skinny legs and neck give him personality.

Martini then Chicken

i thought i posted yesterday's. clearly i hadn't.

i painted an egg a few months ago:

it has been decided what came first.

now on to the one i forgot yesterday......

this is my second martini painting. i like how the vodka refracts the light and makes the toothpick look broken.

i like how the blue background on this one looks like waves in water. though i guess the fishing pole wouldnt be under water. maybe the fish yanked the pole from the fisheman to save its own life.

Elephant with Flower

Sugar Glider

the guy that asked for this saw that i specialized in cute things and asked himself, "what is the cutest thing ever?" he came up with sugar gliders and requested one. i heard they make great/illegal pets. he's right. they are really darn friggin' cute.

i'm glad i was allowed to make this one cute and scary. zombies always make me think of thriller.

Toy Fox Terrier

the guy that requested this wanted to give the painting to his wife for her birthday. i think i may not have finished on time cause that was six months ago.

Tuesday, October 9, 2007


the person that requested this painting only said that they liked technology. this is what i came up with. when i hold it i feel like i'm the size of a mouse.

Robot In Underbritches

ahahahahah!! yep, this was a request. it reminds me of quailman from the cartoon "doug". he was a superhero that wore his underwear on the outside.

Jerk Penguin

this is the third penguin i've done. i tried to change it up and gave him characteristics of african penguins. african penguins are also known as jackass penguins. maybe the species has a tendency towards being jerks.

Mama and Baby

i've heard that koala's are cute but not very friendly. i'm too lazy to back that up with wikipedia.

Praying Birds

this bird is praying and flying at the same time. its an inside joke that was not explained to me. the person that requested this wanted two similar ones. i usually only do one even though lots of people ask for more but she wrote an article for me that got published.

Roll Bot

many people ask for the orange robot i did in the first set of 30 paintings for a gallery. i dont have it anymore. and i wouldn't have it 10 times over because so many people requested it. i used to paint very similar ones when people asked for him specifically but i got bored with that. now i usually change the look of the robot and the background color and hope the requester still likes it.
