Here's another in the series of SuperMonsters paintings I've been working on. It's really neat how Limitations can be seen as a "Yellow Brick Road" of sorts in our art. The fact that I don't have an unlimited pallet (Like I would with a digital medium) and I can't "step back" and erase mistakes with a flick of a click, are actually part of the "scaffolding" that guides me in my work. Sometimes, its easier to at least have limitations and do a MacGuyver than it is to do a StarTrek "Genesis Device" world building from scratch number. Hah! That's gotta be the most Quotation Marks I've ever used in a post!

Here's a finished version of my ZOMBIEMAN ZERO wooden "Peg Head" figurine complete with box and "Collect-me-card". I'm a big fan of those Japanese "Candy Toys" and this PEG HEAD toy was totally inspired by them! It's really satisfying to make something in a genre that inspires you! It's enlightening and it lets you appreciate it on a whole new level. So, my Life Tip for the day is... If you like something, Make it!
