Salvaged Art Project
My wife and I were talking about some different art projects we could do, and I thought she came up with a cool one. Her idea was to take an existing piece of art and add to it. It could be something horrible that your making better or maybe you can even make it worse. It could be something you like and you're just making it a little better in your own way. The main point is to try and make it you're own. I found this print when we were out and about doing one of our thrift store tours. I loved it, but I thought I could do my own little spin on it. The original art was done by an artist named Ozz Franca. Here's a link to his website if you'd like to check out his other artwork. OZZFRANCA.COM If he ever happens to see this I hope he doesn't mind. I didn't paint over an original. It's just a print. I look at it more as a collaboration that he just didn't agree to. Sorry, Ozz. Anyways, it was a lot of fun , and you ever get the chance you should do one of these too.
Collaboration with Dan Hazelton
I'm really excited about this! Ever since I woke up this morning and saw the finished product I haven't been able to wipe the smile off my face. I drew the picture up and was blessed to have Dan Hazelton come in on the project and digitally paint the drawing. I am blown away with what he has done with it. I think a
wacom tablet may be in my future.

Started a new Phoenix backpiece. I'm excited to see how it's gonna turn out. The girl I'm doing the tattoo on sent me these pics. I thought they were nice and I thought I'd share.
Banner Sketch 2
This is my 2nd shot at a new banner idea. I think I like it more. Got the idea last night. Sat around listening to some movies and drawing. Whata Friday night???!
Cuckoo! is finally finished
This thing about killed me. I don't have a lot of time to paint, so this painting took me about 5 months. I can only hope that I learned something from this experience that will help me in the future. It's done in acrylic and is 20x30 inches. I'm going to get some professional shots done so I can make a really nice print. If you're interested in picking one up, keep a look out, I'll post it once I have them done. I took a couple pictures along the way to show my progress. Check 'em out!
