Wedding present

I painted this tribute to Basil Gogos and Famous Monsters of Filmland as a wedding gift for friends. I've always idolized Basil Gogos' art ever since I saw his covers when I was a little kid at my older cousin's house. They scared me, transfixed me and influenced me to be an artist, even though I didn't really know what that meant, and that you could achieve such skill. I painted this with watercolor and gouache on oatmeal scrapbook paper.

Nick Fury

I just saw Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, and I thought it was superb. The film ups the ante for superhero movies as far as I'm concerned. It was relevant and timely, especially in a world where lack of trust and the surveillance culture affects everyone. The easter eggs, and nods to many fun stuff was especially pleasurable to see, and the kid in me was geeking out! Once again, the Producers at MARVEL studios have hit a home run. I did this Nick Fury drawing a few years ago when Samuel L. Jackson was cast, and you kinda hire him to play Samuel L. Jackson.

It's Carvin' Time!

I freakin' LOVE Halloween, and this year, I wanted to get into sculpting pumpkins. I've never seen anyone do a THING from Fantastic Four, and it seemed like a natural, since he's already orange. I studied sculptor Ray Villafane's instructional videos and dove in to sculpting this weekend. It took me 2 1/2 hours, and required a bit of elbow grease, but I'm really happy with the results! I can't wait to do more.
