Just finished a series of PEG HEADS! They're like mini 3 dimensional action figure paintings! The wooden shape is so simple and smooth it's a great canvas that lets you "paint" with color and value and line. This series is a "ZOMBIEMAN ZERO" series with different zombiemen in it. The big "Kool Aid" looking guy in the back is a separate "Nesting egg" doll I've been working on. I still have to finish all the other egg dolls inside of him, but he's off to a good start! Fun Stuff Man!

The SUPERMONSTERAMA project is making headway this weekend! Here's two profiles of the Supermonsters from the main storyline! Mutator and Gigantotron!

I'm choosing to use the limited color pallet for a nice contrast to the fully rendered paintings throughout the actual story. It's kinda neat how the limited color in old comics and posters was a cost issue but really created a beautiful aesthetic for the artform. That aesthetic can really be seen in some of the old Hammer posters, which they have recently made a pretty friggin neat book out of.

In a time where artists can use literally countless colors and filters and effects to render, it's good to remember that sometimes less is just what the doctor ordered!

Here's an example of an entry in the SUPERMONSTERAMA gallery section. It's really enjoyable writing the copy for the Supermonster gallery entries. Sometimes you can get bogged down trying to make something people will want to buy, or wanting to create an artistic statement on life. My advice is to take a break from making serious, thought provoking, or commercial art every now and then and just have fun. :)

Some SUPERMONSTERS illustrated pages...

Here are some Illustrated pages from the Supermonsters project I'm working on. These will bridge the Supermonster series of Paintings I did. Why do this? Why not just fully painted storybook OR painted cover/comicbook? I'm doing the peanut butter cup equation... gettin' these "two great tastes and making them taste great together!" It also falls under the "Let your passion fuel your Purpose" idea(Hey, that's from the latest IDIOT ENGINE:) I'm passionate about Supermonster Paintings AND Comics so I'm using 'em to Fuel a story! Blast off!
