When The Idea First Came About I Was Just Coming Off A 3 Year Stenciling Addiction & Was Really Starting To Lose My Shit PART DEUX

Hello again dear readers,

As you may know,  I was recently looking through my stash for some works to be shipped to the UK.  I was surprised to find the studies for my SOLD out 2009 series “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility”!  I had totally forgotten about them.

The series was a mesh of mixed media and collage on mostly 30 x 40″ canvas with an amoral/confessional super hero theme.  When the idea first came about I was just coming off of a three-year stencil addiction and I wanted to do something different.  “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” eventually manifested itself as primarily hand drawn work but it all started with the recently found stencil/collage pieces.

I decided to put a selection of the studies on sale for a limited time.  They SOLD OUT within the hour!

This week I listed a few more.  I believe these studies were probably the first or second phase I created while working out the idea for “W.G.P.C.G.R”.

Below is “Dolla Bill” from 2009

The 2009 “W.G.P.C.G.R” studies will only be available until Thursday, November 20th,

so check out this piece and see what other studies that are on sale at my SHOP.

Until next time,

“Downward Facing God” THH70 / Ckirk Art Collaboration

Hi and happy new year to everyone reading,

I just saw that friend and fellow artist THH70 finally finished a collaborative piece I started around 2 years ago while staying at his pad in Los Angeles.  The figure is I scribbled is quite a bit different from the photorealistic oils and deranged whimsical watercolors I have been creating since the visit.  Anyway, It took him long enough to start, but I’m pretty pleased with what he brought to the piece.  Besides the aesthetics he added, T gave it a pretty cool title also.

Three Super Sexy & Hilariously Depraved Custom Bottles For November Swedish Exhibits

Hello all,

I was selected to create art on three hand-made wooden bottles for two exhibits in Sweden a few months ago.  I didn’t have time wait for oil to dry and I hate painting anything but solid backgrounds with acrylic, so I decided to go with transfer prints, spray paint, sticker collage.  Considering that my work has moved away from “Design oriented” compositions, I had quite a bit of trouble.  After a bit of trial and error, I finally came up with something I could live with and shipped them off today.

I never really took the time to get a proper photo of the end result, but from what I understand, the galleries will be photographing the custom bottles.

More info on exhibit to come.

Sold A Few Pieces This Week Ranging From Current Watercolor to Old Stencil Pieces

Hello all,

I sold a few pieces this week.  Yay!  First, I sold a recent watercolor titled “The First Of Seven Angels Blowing The First Of Seven Horns” to a nice woman in Canada.

Then over the weekend, an old friend and fellow artist dropped by to pick up a few very old stencil works that were created for an event I curated titled “The Black History Exhibit”.  I haven’t shown these works (For years) since I began to sell my work internationally due to the fact that they are on particle board and are expensive as HELL to ship overseas.  I shipped one to a buyer in Japan once and the shipping cost was $300.
