Banner Article Skin and Ink 2001

When I was in Berlin Guen and I were talking about hand painted banners and she suggested that I bring back my article on banner painting that I did way back in 2001!

I hope you can read this easily. I may be able to edit this article soon with the text typed by hand. Thanks for looking!

Family Von Swartlagune

A painting I finsihed awhile ago and haven’t shared here yet. The family portrait gallery of the Creature from the Black Lagune. I may make prints from this. Would you be interested?

Mural at MUJAM in Mexico City

Late last year I was invited to do character design for a stop motion co-production Japanese/Mexican annimation film, Lucharobomatic. In conjunction with a promotional teaser I painted the two main characters at the MUJAM museum, Trueno Tigre and Furioso Rosa. The idea of the film is that robots are anonimous, only a dozen or so different series and thousands of copies of each model. They are forced start wearing masks to differentiate, so they can wrestle mexican style. The bad guys are the producers of programmed disfunction the ones who force the robots to fight until death. They battle until total destruction of their oponent. They start to develope an identity under the masks and form a resistance to enslavement and programed obsolescence. Matches are held in an old abandoned mambo club, outside an enormous metal face with giant hands holding morracas. From Tokyo to Mexico city robot masked wrestlers are preparing for the throw down. And I am the Roseheaded pink cotton candy haired artist, asked to pose for photos with Mexican children. The story plot is pretty conventional but there are some interesting Twists and Double twists.

New Oil Paintings.

I’m so happy that I switched from acrylic to oil. The colors are much richer and I feel like I can go farther and improve my skin textures. I’m learning all by myself, I wish I had someone to give me pointers!

Studio Update


A temporary painting display on the little shelf above my work station. One day the dice collection will be installed there. Four paintings are mine and the others done by friends.

There’s a Story Here


I’ve got a least three stories attached to these two paintings, maybe I’ll tell you someday.

In the meantime I’m trying to find an identical frame, which I found at the fleamarket, for the boy.
