Hey everyone,

The other day I spent some time at the easel painting and I was thinking of new ways to reach new art fans. I have had so much success at Kickstarter, I decided I wanted to try my hand at an art focused project.

One of the big gambles making art is that you spend long hours planning and executing a painting, then print costs come into play, which can often be an expensive gamble for the artist. I have often finished a painting, thought it was the best thing I have done, run a bunch of prints, then never have them sell. So with the latest painting, I wanted to use crowd-funding to see if it is worthwhile to run a large print run.

So I launched this:


 I am really excited about this painting, and hope that its worth running a large print run!

Scales! So I am finally finishing up the Watcher painting. Tonight its roughing in all the scales. I think I’m going cross eyed. But luckily the beer is helping. That’s it really, now back to your normal Web surfing.

New Artwork – Rock Dragon and Eagle!

On September 18, 2012, in Artwork, by Michael

Rock, Dragon, and Eagle! Oil on Paper, 11×15.

This is a commission for someone at the Ohio Renaissance Festival. The title is a nod to Charlie going american all over someones ass in Always Sunny. And the Mountains were stolen right out of an Elmore painting.
