Nike Commission

well i guess it's not really a commission in the sense of getting payed for commission work. Painted this up for my girlfriend. Was her choice colors and i think it turned out pretty well.

Nike Dunks

I have a Thing for sneakers. Love sneakers! Actually have a pretty nice stash of them going on in the corner of my bed room.

thats actually from last year and i haven't updated it.. there is about 5 more pairs to that pile, most of them are all still in boxes.
But anyway, this post is about Nike Dunks. They are classics and i felt they needed some quality art inspired by them so I did this 11x14 painting of them yesterday.

I think it turned out pretty well and I'm thinking about doing some other color schemes as well. If you have any suggestions, let me know. Maybe I can get some of these up on Etsy.

first friday

Jeez, I need to get in the groove of posting again. I attended First friday in Philadelphia again, with Christine, my loving girlfriend. She runs a cute blog over at http://ckscribbles.blogspot.com. Though we didn't sell much, we still had a good time and met some awesome people. I think it was mostly because of July 4th weekend and everyone was at the beach.

I always have blast and always enjoy feedback from what other people would like to see (pokémon-wise) and what they think of the style in general. I also enjoy when people are confused by the pokémon and the servbots... seems like a lot of people don't play video games haha. I seem to get "I like those robots" or "lego men" all the time. PLAY SOME MEGAMAN LEGENDS AND MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2! These are some classics.

Then i thought to myself... I should do other videogames and animes that no one plays to it's even more obscure. Then my target audience would be even smaller, probably not the best idea...

Oh well. Speaking of needing to update things, i need to update my etsy account and put some new paintings up (and take one off because i sold it at 1st friday). so much work to do...

Friday again?!

going to be back in Philadelphia for First Friday to show off some paintings, maybe even sell a few again. I got a good response last time, you can tell who the video game nerds are but the quick glances at the mudkip and hearing people mutter under their breath "I heard like mudkips." Always puts a smile on my face.

I got a bunch more paintings painted up. Most are more Pokemon and a couple of servbots. I have a list of pokémon in my head just waiting to be made into stencils or maybe just painted up. Though i love the hole "pop art" look of my current work, i think i wanna try and make some silly hand painted pokés.

I have had this feeling lately that I don't have enough time and canvases to create all the ideas in my head... I also blame video games for not having enough time for art, but thats just bad excuses and me not being good with time management. WORK WORK WORK PAINT PAINT PAINT!!
