Hello again art lovers,
I hope you’ve all had a great week and are as excited about Fall as I am!
I’ve been really going at it lately. Currently, I have three new “Behold The Son Of GRID” pieces finished. I plan to feature one of the allegorical paintings a week until I run out. Hopefully by then, I’ll have more work to show. This week’s featured piece is titled Apoko-Lips#23 – Behold The Son Of GRID #4. It was created with watercolor, acrylic, graphite, ballpoint pen, micron pen, transfer pencil, colored pencil & collage. I really like how the Dr. Seuss/Cookie Monster feel contrast with the esoteric knowledge that’s scribbled onto the background.

After going through the laundry list of mediums I’ve been using to create these new works of art, I think I’ll elaborate on the collage areas a little. A handful of people have asked about the contents of the collage pieces. Basically, what I’ve done is slather black face paint on and then take high-resolution photos that can be enlarged to any size with out loosing resolution. Next, I decide upon some symbolic ornaments for the face and create the pieces from construction paper. Afterward these ornaments are scanned at high-resolution also, and I begin arranging them in a study like the one shown below. After the painting part is complete and most importantly, dry, the decorated head/heads or collage into the work.

I hope you enjoyed the new piece. If you are interested in this work, other additions to Apoko-Lips, or earlier works of art, feel free to visit my website and contact me. I’ll be happy to help.
As always, keep an eye out for a new blog post next Wednesday. I’ll be featuring a new work of art (Detail below) and possibly a little insight into the piece.
Until next time, have a great week!
