The newest member of Jeff's family 'o freaks! He doesn't talk much but he's loyal and always show up on time. Below are some of the gang in their their new outfits which find themselves, I am proud to say, at home on Jeff's wall...that is until they to come to life and destroy his house.. 11"x14" oil on canvas.

This one made me giggle. I also used some different colors this time to incorporate more cool and subtle tones, such as van dyke brown mixed with ultramarine blue for deep cool dark's, instead of asphaltum which makes a rich warm dark. Maybe its the photo but it looks like his beard could've used some more love.. This one is also for Jeff, and it made for some colorful commentary while getting tattooed.

A couple of quick paint sketches playing with texture, which is always fun. I used a couple of photo texture overlays, some "natural hair" brushes, and opaque lines. The top sketch is based off a gorgeous sculpture by Bhead, which is far more interesting than my sketch. Check his work out here.

The new year brings with it a (fittingly) direful painting of a diasporic lad who renders himself frighteningly astute on your doorstep. And he just needs to use your bathroom right quick...I feel this one went dutifully well in regards to speed and clarity of execution, simple as the composition is. Although I may have overworked it in some areas (or not enough if self criticism comes lacking). This dashing fellow joins his brethren amongst Jeff's growing collection of my (rather questionable) fine arts.
