New Artwork – The Edge of Madness

On September 18, 2012, in Artwork, by Michael

The Edge of Madness, 30″x40″, oil on wood panel

This was the main paintings I made for the Lovecraft show at Logue’s Black Raven Emporeum. The imagery comes from a half dream I had. I was almost asleep while thinking of the design for my final painting in the show. I saw a weird plane of existence, with a crack leading to another brighter plane. A strange flying machine floated in the distance and as I watched, a dark creature floated up its wings transparent and criss crossed with veins. I immediately jumped up and finished the sketch for the painting.

Lovecraft Show

On August 18, 2012, in Artwork, by Michael

So I am missing the awesome Lovecraft show that is happening in Nashville tonight. I am pretty sad to miss such an epic event, but Gencon is epically entertaining me. But in honor of the show tonight I did this cthulhu drawing. Maybe it’s baby cthulhu?

Further work on larger lovecraft painting.

On August 3, 2012, in Artwork, General, by Michael


Here is the latest photo of the 30 x 40 painting. I am calling it “the edge of madness”. Finished the first layer of the little flying machine on the left, next is to do a reference photoshoot for the flying cthulhu which will be on the right side of the canvas. So far I am pretty happy with the progress. I got the idea for the background when I was half dreaming imagining what a chaos dream plane would look like.

Just wanted to show you how I often prepare a surface. This is clear gessoed luan wood with frame. Very wet acrylic if various things on it to rust, stain or shape the paint as it drys.
