Angry Batman - Grrrrrrrrrr

Now here's a guy that always makes me smile. What a sunny disposition with him, and with some pretty cool toys as well. I was thinking this painting is his reaction to Robin dingin' up the Batmobile or forgetting to do his homework or something very teenagery. Yikes, not the best father figure, but a pretty cool pad indeed.

"Naughty Spawn, You face The Tick!"

If you have no idea whose these people are or what the hell they do, you seriously need to educate yourself about the Tick. He is the funniest, ironic, iconic, supersonic, giantest blue guy ever. Check him out on YouTube right now - I'm tellin you, you owe it to yourself. He has quite possibly the best theme song ever too. SPOON! (that's his hero call)

SpongeBob Superpants

Face it, everyone's favorite late night channel flippin landing place is Nickelodeon. Lucky for me they are lookin for some people to paint them some good stuff. Hopefully I can get some attention from them at Comic-Con this week. I painted them some samples to drool over. These characters are much fun to paint, you really cannot be in a bad mood while painting them. In fact, I can't get the grin off my face at all - time to paint Batman, can't smile with him.

30 Years of "The Star Wars"

Yep, you guessed it... I'm one of those guys that has that certain sumpthin' for those funny little movies. Seen them a few times, bought some toys, etc. I hear they are celebrating 30 years this year - man, I'm getting old. Anyway, I've managed to paint a little tribute here from the first movie and of course everyone's little green friend. Enjoy!

The Landing

With this piece I wanted to paint a serene landscape, but ended up throwing in a blimp-boat (not to be confused with a shrimp boat) in to it for a little excitement. I think it could be another "story starter" painting that keeps the creative thinkin' juices flowing. Hmm..... we'll have to see.

After Midnight Craziness at the Zoo

Here is a fun piece I created as an exercise to see how many animals I could pack into one frame. I always wondered what happens after all us gawkers leave the zoo. There is probably things we don't want to know.....hmm. Anyway, it was also an exercise to practice painting things underwater. I have some plans to paint more underwater stuff soon and wanted to get a "heads up" before I go apaintin'. Cheers!

The Funniest Batman Ever -Adam West!

A true hero of mine during my upbringing in front of the television, the debonair Mr Adam West. Unmistakably the coolest super hero depiction ever. If you haven't checked out the groovy 1967 feature film "Batman", run out and get the DVD. I was watching it while painting this and couldn't stop laughing. It's the best 10 bucks you'll spend. Way cool behind the scenes commentary that reveals the craziness these guys lived through.Bats and Robin had it pretty good- they were HUGE stars for a few years there. . Ahhhhh, the past; how fun it looks in the rear view mirrror.

I have finally arrived!

I have decided to enter the unknown world (at least to me) of blogging. I am using it to show additions to my portfolio without the headaches of updating it constantly. Feel free to comment on the extentions of my imagination you see here - Enjoy!
