this request was the result of "the best 'shrooms ever". it is two lions coming together to make a yin yang. clearly, to fully experience this painting, the viewer should be on 'shrooms to look at it. i bet the requester will "fully experience" this painting once he gets it in the mail.

this was requested by a daughter for her mom. usually people's sappy request stories don't get to me but i really liked this one. the girl's mom had to move to singapore and it was tough on them. the girl got a chance to go visit her mom and this type of flower, frangipani, were everywhere in singapore. frangipani became a theme of the visit and now these flowers have a personal meaning for them. the two flowers in the painting represent the two of them.

this is a bunnybee. i was going to save this to post on the 31st since we're so close to halloween but i decided not to because then i would have to say that this bunny is wearing a bee costume. or perhaps that it is a bee wearing a bunny mask and shoes. but that is not the case. this is a crazy hybrid creature with both bee and bunny parts.

no, this is not another bridesmaid painting. (though it would be funny if i accidentally sent this instead of one of the beach depictions.) i got through all of the paintings for those ladies and was happy to get back to my usual style but this guy came next. the requester wanted it "as grimdark (adj.) as you can." so that means no cute characters in bright colors. here are reapers one through three for comparison:

this is the first of six paintings outside of my usual style. they're all commissioned by a soon-to-be bride for her bridesmaids and they're all of locations that have a sentimental meaning for them. i think it's a cute idea for the bride to give something so personalized. she should have gotten one for every person that attended.

this is based on an illustration by Gianluca Fallone. it's scratch art. well, it's an acrylic painting. but it looks like one of those scratch art papers i used to make drawings in grade school. i wonder if that's what he was going for.
