On Trojan Horses, The #Goonpopulous & Worldwide Pedo Busts

 

Hello internet,

The progressive and tolerant #goonpopulous showed its ass off at yet again, this time at Berkeley University the night before last.  The violent protest, or riot, is said to have been initiated over a homosexual journalist named Milo Yiannopolis of Breitbart News  , being scheduled to give a talk.  I know, crazy right?

Now, if you haven’t witnessed the violent temper tantrum just yet, or simply don’t believe me, take a look at the footage in the videos below.

If you are currently or recently have been setting things on fire, damaging property, physically assaulting individuals or groups with opposing views, funding or organizing this angry mob, or blindly accepting and spreading ‘news’ with no actual evidence behind it, the statement in this new piece may be meant for you.

On Trojan Horses

“Perhaps you were transformed into an ill-informed simpleton by the prolonged misuse of ‘smart’ technology.”



If the statement above happens to apply to you, know that the revolution has happened already & you missed it. I’d like to include this urgent message of 4 Beatles from across time for the #goonpopulous

Listen carefully. 



On a brighter note, the worldwide pedophile ring is unraveling fast. Tons of arrests made around the planet. 474 arrests made, I believe on February 2, 2017, in Los Angeles alone. Google it for more info.

And they said it was a conspiracy.

The Black Wolf That Carries The Stolen Bag Of Countless Treasures – New Watercolor Studies

Hello again art lovers!

I hope all is well in your worlds.

I’m excited.  I’ve completed a few newer watercolors, two which I very pleased with.  A couple of the new pieces a more detailed works and  after spending a handful of days on the, more involved watercolors, I  decided to go back to studies that are less time consuming and more playful.  In some regards, I feel like the simple, whimsical illustrations suit the story better.   

ckirk_kakhati_one-2

ckirk_kakhati_one-1The tale centers around an amnesiac who lives alone on an island.  As a result of a frustrating, zen-like conversation with a hungry pelican that swooped down to steal his roasted fish, the amnesiac is charged with a perilous quest and dubbed the “Old fool”.  The old fool must find the black wolf that carries the stolen of bag of countless treasures.  Inside the bag are three items which will console the weeping dragon.

I was thrilled after finishing “The Black Wolf” piece above.  For me, the quick little watercolor is simple and strong.  That’s probably why I’m so captivated by it.  I could’ve done a little more work in the background, but I left it out.  Speaking of background, many of the illustrations for the story will need to include the setting, so I’ve been studying up on painting landscapes with watercolor. Hopefully, I’ll have some aptitude there.  We’ll see.

I love the “Spring Dragon” Piece (Above) very much.  It really took an enormous amount of patience and a lot of work to get the watercolor so rich.  I don’t know how Alex Ross does it.  Anyway, as far as I’m concerned, the time and patience paid off.  

img_0016The Old Fool study above is still in progress.  I’ve used little pools of watercolor to form the image and inserted some very visible brush strokes here and there for contrast.  We’ll see how it turns out.

As always, To see other recently completed pastel studies and my current selection of work in watercolor, oil, mixed media, ect, please visit my website ckirkart.com.

The Old Fool: An Epic Tale To Enrich Painting

Hello again art lovers!

I hope all is well in your worlds.

I know, its been a while since I’ve posted a new blog entry.  I wish I could say that I’ve been painting for the duration of my M.I.A status, but I haven’t.  You see, I began painting the “Kakhati” art around the simple theme of laughter.  Kakhati is a Sanskrit word from ancient India that roughly translates into English as “Laugh out loud”.  Anyway, after working through a few pieces,  I felt like “Kakhati” could be enriched and possibly even flourish if a little more thought was thrown into the mix.  With this in mind, I attempted something new.  I wrote an epic for source material.

Don’t bet me wrong, I know other artists like William Blake, have been fond of combining their painting and writing talents to make more elaborate works, but I’ve never really utilized the combination.  Writing has always been one of my great hobbies and truthfully, I’ve probably written much more than I’ve painted this year, so it seemed natural to assimilate the hobby into my work.

old_fool_mono1kakhati_eary_charcoal

I’ve only completed a few newer pieces and they’re  little more than quick studies, but now that my epic is finished, I have a treasure trove of rich, fanciful imagery stored up in the ol’ dream machine.  The tale centers around an amnesiac who lives alone on an island.  As a result of a frustrating, zen-like conversation with a hungry pelican that swooped down to steal his roasted fish, the amnesiac is charged with a perilous quest and dubbed the “Old fool”.  The old fool must find the black wolf that carries the stolen of bag of countless treasures.  Inside the bag are three items which will console the weeping dragon.

kakhati_spring_dragonAs you may be able to imagine, I am very excited about the upcoming paintings featuring a selection of imaginative scenes from the epic.  I’m still not sure whether I want to use oil paint for realism, or watercolor for a more whimsical approach to the imagery, so I’ll  probably do both.  A long-time friend and collector of my work phoned the other day, and after hearing about the project, he graciously offered to provide the funding for most of the supplies I needed.  I happily accepted the support, so it’ll only be a matter of time, before the old fool’s adventure is  translated into visual art.

A New Erotic Mythology – Siren#4

Hello again art lovers.

I hope all is well in your worlds.

I’ve been busying myself with Siren studies.  In Greek Mythology, the Sirens were beautiful, but dangerous creatures who lured sailors to their doom with enchanting songs.  Since I’m working in chalk pastel and not music, my “Siren” studies focus more on sexuality and playful but odd physical gestures.

A New Erotic Mythology – 3 Sirens

Hello again art lovers,

I hope you’ve all had a great week.

I’ve been pretty busy.  I finished up a commissioned piece that pretty much replicates my highly popular chalk pastel drawing “An Aging Bard”.  Its not an exact replica of course, but I actually like this version better than the original.  The piece will soon be packed up and shipped to Stockholm Sweden.

In other news, I have a handful of new studies in the works.  So far, I’ve been concentrating on the “Siren” drawings.  In Greek Mythology, the Sirens were beautiful, but dangerous creatures who lured sailors to their doom with enchanting songs.  Since I’m working in chalk pastel and not music, my “Siren” studies focus more on sexuality and so far, the emphasis is on the vagina.

Check out the extra LARGE image of “Three Sirens” below.

New Figure study “Siren” + Old Visceral Charcoal Drawings + Print Orders + Sold Archetype

Hello again art lovers,

I hope all is well in your worlds.

I’m well.  I sold a few works, landed a nice commission, and began some new pastel studies on builder’s paper which I haven’t quite finished yet.  Among the pieces recently sold was a favorite of mine.  It was an early 2013 addition to the Apoko-Lips series titled “The Occupation” and in retrospect, it showed that the Trickster archetype that Carl Jung wrote about was in full swing.   Before boxing the piece up for shipping, I took the opportunity to snap a higher quality photo which you can see below.

I also have some new print inquiries.  I figured I’ll take this opportunity to make limited editions available once again for a limited time.  I will be taking new print orders until Wednesday May 4th, 2016.  You can see pieces available in print form by clicking here.  If you’d like to order a limited edition print, please email me from the “Contact” page of my website.

In other news, I recently went through my art storage and came across a few different collections of studies from 2010.  These studies were created with charcoal, and chalk on 18 x 24″ paper.  They are very visceral and moody.  I shot high quality images of the work and have listed them on the “Shop” page of my website.  I attached one of the pieces below, but if you liked to see the other three, please visit my shop.  If you would like to see high quality or detail photos of the 2010 studies, please contact me from my website.

I’ll end by mentioning that I have completed my 4th pastel study on builder’s paper.  I have no idea exactly what I will do with the images.  Maybe I’ll use them for reference on future oil paintings.  Right now, I’m just enjoying the process of creating the figure studies.  Its been a long time since I’m worked on toned paper and I have to admit, I really love the contrast between the monochromatic figures and the warm brown of the paper.  Below is the recently finished pastel study “Siren #1”.
