Vice


Here's a stray Day of the Dead painting I should have posted a few days ago. It sort of became a self-portrait along the way though I don't think I have his problems.

Would that be that you are not a drunk, or the fact that you, unlike a skeleton, can actually get drunk?

At least you're less dead, right? ^^

Nice one. Saw the self-portrait thing right away.

I wonder, I imagine this was one of those quick paintings that "just worked out" where every line you drew fell exactly where it should. Just a straight shot to the finish line.

In other words, perfectly executed. Although I've seen this painting before, I never realized it was a self portrait, simply cause I can't imagine you drinking or smoking.

All your art has been creepy lately...which is fun, but something cute in the Sam and Max style would be a nice change.

Superb... you can see all the colors on the background. Really contrasts to the creepy figure of the skeleton doomed to his addiction to alcohol. The shadow ads a touch of majestry, cause the skeleton figure belongs to it, and someone uncovered him to find that even in paradise you'll find rotten things.
