Last But Not Least Sneak Preview

I finished up the last piece this weekend and packed everything up. Now I’m on my way to the post office. I will post all the paintings on the date of the opening at Outré Gallery.

Group Expo in Paris!

I don’t get the chance to show in my home town very often, so this is a special event for me. Wish me luck to finish in time!

What’s in the Box?

sneakpeak

I’ve got so many exciting projects in the works all at once!

I’ve just started oil painting and the box you see is one I just bought to hold all my tubes and mediums. I’m really having fun with it.

I have 5 paintings to do for a group show in October.

I’ve got three panels inked for my comic.

And I’ve got a vinyl figure to paint for a show here in Paris.

Il Est Terrible!

This robot thief cracks me up! He’s part of a new sheet of flash I just finished up this morning.

I think he’d make a great t-shirt, but it would probably cost me a fortune to print all those colors. What do you think of him in black and white?

The Evolution of an Idea

Once while walking around Paris with some visiting friends and talking about tattoo projects, we noticed that on the Louvre building there were lots of traditional tattoo symbols and in fact a lot of tattoo ideas to be found. A little while later I was invited to hang an art show at my friend’s record store, named Born Bad. I wanted to do a series of tattoo images based on the Louvre and my husband suggested the title “Born to Louvre”. Here’s a photo of the building and the painting it inspired.

Some time later someone asked for a tattoo based on this painting and here’s the result:

I’m not sure why I changed her into a mirror but it really worked well as a tattoo. Probably has some hidden symbolism that I’m not yet aware of.

I’m glad that people like my work enough to get it permanently etched into their body. I keep on working some of my crazy ideas out on paper hoping someone will want it as a tattoo. I like this idea of getting tattoos inspired by European architecture.
