He-Man Show

Happy New Year! The first show I will be involved in this new year is the "Under the Influence: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" show at Gallery1988 Los Angeles, this Friday evening, January 8.

This show should be a lot of fun. I hear that the gallery is transforming into a mini Castle Grayskull, so along the same theme, I've created my own version and tribute to the castle itself, called "Gray Skies":


I had a good time with this piece, and kept it more towards the backgrounds. I tried to go a little looser with it, and while painting, thought back to some ideas of painting as a concept artist. 2010 seems like a good year to do some exploring with some technique and ideas so we'll see how it goes.

Gearing up for a February show at Gallery1988 San Fransisco and will be trying a couple of different things there as well. Now, it will be just small things here and there, so no worries. I'm not going to start painting pretty ladies, or skulls everywhere. Actually, the He-Man piece was partly fun in that this was my first skull ever! Probably my last.
