Mr. Cabege drop'd me a line back in Dec informing me how his roommate was looking for someone to do a painting for him. I was like I'ght, and he passed my connect and the link was made. Long story short-his roommate wanted a 4x5 ft painting of a romanticized/conanish version of himself, standing behind a dead lion he just battled, a hot brunette at his side, and somehow include a bull and bear fighting (via: wall streetish). Sign me up! The time line was pretty much a month, he wanted to have this painting for his birthday party which is today. His birthday is actually Feb 18 but he wanted the party to be on on a Sat, but ironic enough, today is "my" birthday haha...funny.
So yeah after running through the description, the imagery developed pretty fast in my mind and I took it to paper. After two sketch roughs and a down payment, the project took off (around Late Jan). After say about two weeks on the grind, I knocked it out and sent it off. All in all it was pretty intense/challenging/interesting. I never did an oil painting at that scale and cause of this project I'm amp'd to do more around that scale. It me made discover some of my technical flaws I need to work on, help gage how fast i can paint certain things, and how much ground I can cover with certain tools. Fun stuff!!! So now its done, here the flics.

the piece, 4x5ftthe sketchthe detailsthe piece again right before I rolled it up and sent it out, (notice the pencil size)

  3. I drove a really old car really far today. I thought that was something, but it pales in comparison to this. Nice work. What if you woke up to this image of yourself every morning?
