Faccia Verso

watercolor on paper, 2014

The culturally relative nature of hand gestures rapidly give way to a singular meaning. Artists like myself vie for the binary thumbs-up approval of creative expression: limits of quality, and possible income, are achieved by accumulating exponential levels of likes, plays, views and re-tweets.

Lady Fortuna

Lady Fortuna

Happy is that death which thrusts not itself upon men in their pleasant years, yet comes to them at the oft-repeated cry of their sorrow. Sad is it how death turns away from the unhappy with so deaf an ear, and will not close, cruel, the eyes that weep. Ill is it to trust to Fortune’s fickle bounty, and while yet she smiled upon me, the hour of gloom had well-nigh overwhelmed my head.
The Consolation of Philosophy, Boethius, 520 AD

Kim Jong-un – Dennis Rodman painting WIP

A few progress pics of the Kim Jong-Un/Rodman painting. After finishing the drawing in just an hour or two – I masked out the figures to preserve them. Figuring out the color washes, despite being just big blobs of color, proved to be the trickiest part – I trashed the first two attempts because they competed too much with the main figures.
I also decide to change Rodman’s uniform from a 90’s Bulls era to a quasi Harlem Globetrotter, USA flag motif (being the self-appointed ambassador and all).
