Battle Zoe

Here's a self-rejected piece that I did not submit to the I-Am 8 Bit show this year. I just wanted to paint a cute girl and she's somewhat halfheartedly incorporated into a broad interpretation of the classic Battle Zone game environment. It's not really a painting, more of a painted sketch but I post because I sort of like the colors and the girl. It was fun to do but ultimately not something I envisioned hanging in a gallery.

High School Confidential - The End...

Okay, I'll admit I've been fairly kind to myself with these posts. 
There are many dustier, more gruesome skeletons in the closet than these. Even so I'll be glad to get back to the new stuff. This one was a sample illustration for a manuscript written by my older brother Lee. I can't remember the title but I sort of recall that the bird can whistle through his beak like an ocarina.

High School Confidential Part 2...

In high school I read those Chariots of the Gods kinda books by Erich Von Daniken and others who made the bombastic claims that every damned thing ancient people ever created was inspired by visiting aliens. I guess I was not altogether convinced as here is a little painting based on my version of that idea.

High School Confidential Part 1...

...That means don't tell anybody. I painted this crap in high school. Some folks were curious after I had made an idle threat to post some vintage offerings. Just a couple more and we'll call it a day, okay?
