Vegas 3

no this post is not about a third vegas painting. it's about my third trip to vegas. my mom and i go there on vacation the same time every year. this tradition has gone on for two whole years so far. so as it was a year ago and a year before that, i shan't be painting for a bit. be back next week!

Sun Sun Sun, Flower Flower Flower, Sunflower Sunflower Sunflower

i've painted a third flower

and a third sun

This Sounds Familiar

isn't the "fire" in "firetruck" redundant? is there a "watertruck" from which we need to distinguish... haha just kidding

Plane Varieties

isn't the "air" in "airplane" redundant? is there a "landplane" from which we need to distinguish this vehicle? perhaps a "seaplane"? or "spaceplane"? crap, now i'm going to get requests to paint a landplane.

crap again. i just googled seaplane because it didn't show up as a typo. and they exist. so do floatplanes aka hydroplanes. and flying boats!

It's Rusty from Lack of Use

the requester that asked for this said he wanted a rusty chainsaw but, "please don't put it on a log or cutting down a tree, as much as I like the image I don't want to endorse deforestation, just the actual tool would be great." haha pretty great.

I'm Stuck with These Guys

the girl that requested this one never got back to me even though i emailed her twice to say her painting was done. lame. i'm usually ok with that happening if the painting is something generic like an animal. this subject, however, does not lend itself to be given to someone else.

Cannibal Candy

are you kidding me?! yeah someone asked for this. and it was a mother sending in the request from her 5-year old girl! "a candy eating itself." that's one cool kid. we should probably hang out. we could chill and make twisted/cute finger paintings together.

Be My FriendFan

i finally created a facebook page for my music. i'm guessing most of the people following this blog are here because of the visual art but you should check out my audio art too.

and while you're at it, you can be my friend on myspace.

A Painting Based on a Painting I've Never Seen

the requester wanted "4 little white bunnies, on a wooden boat, out at sea, during a storm, around dusk" he said his friend has a picture by that description and he wanted to see my take on it. i wonder what the other one looks like.

Radiation by Spagnola on Droid

a while ago i mentioned my song is on the T-Mobile MyTouch. now Droid from Verizon has been released and it also features Radiation by Spagnola as one of it's default ringtones. check out

Ali Spagnola - Free of Style - Radiation

to hear a preview of the song or buy the ringtone here.

The Most Dangerous Animal in the World

a painting of two gray creatures in an unlikely situation. this, i'm guessing, was requested because of the Jack Handey quote from SNL that states, "Contrary to what most people say, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It's a shark riding on an elephant's back, just trampling and eating everything they see."
