Illustration Friday – Creature

monsterfriendThis is a piece from sometime last year.  Its another thrift store detournement piece.  When I pulled this off my wall this morning, I totally forgot that I treated it with a layer of modge podge to try and unify my painting with the original.  It kind of worked.  I might try this again on my cobra commander  blue boy painting I finished this summer.  Happy Halloween, everybody!

Illustration Friday : Together

togetherHere is my submission to Illustration Friday.  It’s the underpainting and I wanted to do more but the week caught up to me.  This is my fantasy.  My two girls in harmony of spirit and song.  Maybe someday.  le sigh.

Illustration Friday: Hidden

AKA Garden of the Gods and Cats.

I’ve been working on this on an off for a few weeks but decided to submit it to illustration friday.  This week’s word is hidden so I thought this was appropriate.  One of the things I really like to do is go garage sale-ing for cheap prints that people don’t want anymore (for instance, this colored picture of Garden of the Gods cost me $1 with a wonderful gold frame) and then paint something into them.  After I made a few of these, I learned that some artists call this detournement.  I just like making them.

Lush-stache Bill
