Oh, Cecilia and Beloved Drone

i took a few days off this past weekend to celebrate independence day in MA with my second family (:D), but now i just want to get this thing OVER WITH!

i tried my best to fiddle with a poor quality photo-- i'll photograph it again in daylight. anyway, here's a few things i learned while working on this piece:

1. drawing type is very difficult
2. keeping the original shape of your type after 4 layers of paint is even more difficult
3. acrylic is not well suited for type, that is why i have the computer
4. i want a pangolin of my own

think i'll start a new painting tonight...i want to narrow my palette this time.

thanks to everyone for the feedback :) (and please, no comments on the kerning)


actually started the next painting!

i realize that this is ANOTHER beheading piece...i assure you that i'm not more-than-reasonably-mentally-unbalanced! i'm just really attracted to this theme for some reason...probably b/c a lot of beheading tales involve some kind of sexual conquest and romance.


  1. This is rocking harder than a geology test homie.
    Looks great. Also, awesome seeing you this past week. If I end up in NY sometime before I leave New England I'll be sure to let you know.
    Keep up the good work as always.

    I'll see if I can get you a pangolin while I'm in San Francisco. I hear they roam free as far as the eye can see there.

  2. if i wasn't already in a fake relationship, i'd be in a real relationship with you :D

  3. hahaha. awwww, I bet you say that to all the Italian looking Cubans that bake you cookies and randomly bring you gundam wing action figures. :)
    By the way, I feel like that head is missing a bluetooth.
    just kidding.
