Wings of Hell

I dedicate this piece to those of you who are suffering from post-Halloween depression like myself. Seeing all that tinsel garbage take over the dark and macabre decor on the store shelves makes me want to weep.  Anyways, I got my artwork back from Hangfire Bar last week and so I finally got a chance to take a (somewhat) decent picture of one of my newest pieces. It's by far my largest canvas painting to date. Weighing in at 50"x24" (approx. 4 ft. x 2 ft.) it was quite a challenge for me to work on it. I normally paint on my bed with the canvas lying flat or in my lap, so you can imagine how awkward it was for me to be rushing from one side of the canvas to the next. Unfortunately this may be the last work you see from me for awhile as I'll be working diligently on Christmas paintings for friends and family and I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise by posting them in a public forum.

I've always wanted to support local music by designing promotional materials, and this past week I finally got that chance. Let me introduce you to the best thing to happen to hip-hop in the last ten years...Kidsyc@Brandywine! Backed by a live hip-hop band, Brandywine, Kidsyc's MC skills are creative, explosive, and intelligent. Kidsyc@Brandywine's performances are always energetic and engaging. I've been a big fan since Halloween (2010) when my girlfriend introduced them to me. I finally had the opportunity to speak with them face-to-face this past October. I showed them what I could do and BAM! that's when the magic happened! I threw one of my exaggerated brand of skulls in my sketchbook and then added Kidsyc's trademark glasses and Braves hat to the mix. I fleshed out the remainder of the design with a bit of freehand text and what you see before you is my sticker design for the local hip-hop sensation! Expect to see these posted up around downtown Savannah and at Kidsyc@Brandywine's shows in the near future.
