Bro. Ghostbusters. Great movie. Stay Puft. Better villain.
Second only to Bruce Springsteen, Martin Brodeur is the most iconic celebrity in New Jersey history. He’s not a native, but his entire professional life has been spent in the Garden State, bringing tree Stanley Cups to the Jerz. That’s huge. Also, this is SOLD.
Phew. Three full weeks, and 30+ New Jerseys later, I’m spent. But I must persevere. The remainder of whatever I don’t move this holiday season with this New Jersey badass series comes with me to the Asbury Park Comic Con, where I hope to swim in dollars.
Following up with yesterday’s cuteness, we get even more saccharine.
Now, onto a trio of other commissions. It’s all Mickey, all day. There were a lot of requests for purchasing Mickey Mouse watercolors after I posted the first one (coincidentally, another request, as I would NEVER go out of my way to have anything to do with him of my own volition). I hate repeating myself, so to mix it up, I satisfied one patron with a Minnie. Another got this classic white-faced Mickey (my favorite of the bunch), and yet another picked up both Steamboat Willie and the Sorceror’s Apprentice. I mean, I got kid to feed now. So whatever.
Today is Small Business Saturday. Visit the shop and pick up a gift to deck someone’s barren halls with, or visit my portfolio site to get an idea of some other stuff I do that you may not see at the store, and commission some original art.
Others are for sale here.
All are available for viewing here, and any without an “(N/A) are available for purchase. $30 gets you the original 7.5×11″ watercolor with your shipping included.
Sometimes, I dream about finished paintings. Not like The Mona Lisa, but paintings that don’t exist.I wake up, and I rack my brain, trying to remember what I saw in my sleep. I’ll jot down notes, or doodles to help me remember the gist. This painting I completed the other night is one of those.
I designed and cut a stencil with BACON CHEESE BURGER written across it.
I spray painted (with gold) a 20×16 canvas that had a sketch of Negaduck, the Darkwing Duck villain. I had planned on painting a series of Darkwing portraits last year, but only ever did Quackerjack.
When that dried, I applied red spray paint over the stencil.
Later that night, I squirt a couple dollops of acrylic paint over the “H” in “CHHESE.” I used a CD jewel case to pull the paint across the canvas. Done.
