Yeah yeah, I know.

Its been a really long time since I posted... but hopefully this will make up for it!

Two projects done. The first was my Halloween costume. I made a grateful dead bear head out of armature wire, duct tape, glue and fabric. Here it is (not bad for my first mascot!)

...and on me:

Also on my easel was this painting for my friend Zach. His brother got hitched while I was out in CA so this is a wedding portrait of the two of them!

I tried out this new type of paint and really love it. It is called "Flashe" and instead of being an acrylic based paint, it has a vinyl base. The paint has all the control of enamels and all of the ease of acrylics! It's water soluble and has one coat coverage! The only drawback is that it is really matte in appearance. Which isn't bad in many of my applications but I suppose it could be. I use most of my black less as a color and more as an outliner... so as an outliner, it makes for a really strong contrast and works really well. I will likely sink some money into a whole bunch of these colors when I get the chance!

SO here it is in all its finished glory! 2' x 3' acrylic and vinyl on stretched canvas. I am driving it down to CT as soon as I am done typing here!
