You will sing for me!
Trying to up the ante with this paper cut stuff. I'm getting urged to keep at it and so I shall.

"Well, well, well, two naughty, nasty little children gone. Three good, sweet little children left."
I'm not so sure if I'm going to do a Charlie one yet. We'll see.
Top is oils, bottom acrylic.
Really wish I could scan these, but literally ever time I try, there's someone hogging the scan computer... one day, one day...

Alex Krokus, who makes awesome animations and illustrations, also has this awesome band called Wood Spider, and this band has a song aptly named, "Our Monster Song", Which features the notorious and positively awful monster, The Grackle.
I thought way back when in 2009, that It'd be super fun to conceptualize this beastie, however I really didn't get around to it till recently.
I'm thinking about building a small portion of a concept art based portfolio around this story and character. I'm really, very excited about this!
Lets have some fun

It's also one of those nights when you don't really want to paint anymore... and yeah.
So I threw the one color comp and tried to show what I really intended for this...
Heres the unedited comp. (BLAND BLAND BLAND)
Slightly color corrected to show what I envisioned.
THE WILD CARD. Because I have a feeling the somewhat monochromatic pallet I want to go for won't fly...But whatever. I really want the the Mono-chrome to work.
SO IMA MAKE IT WORK... maybe. But I sort of like the feeling of this one too... hrm...
(back to the drawing...er painting board)

These are just two more sketches based on the first one.
I hope to eventually expand on the teaser posters, but for now I'm going to head back into the collage movie poster realm!

Trista Moldovan and Hugh Panaro.
This was done mostly as a way to assuage my jealously and contempt for the fact I couldn't attend Phantom of the Opera's 10,000 performance. Due to insufficient funds and poor planning on my part, I had to sit on the sidelines for this occasion. I tried to combat the feelings of devastation by creating this task for myself.
At 2:00pm, the time of the 10,000 performance, I put on my favorite, less than completely legitimate, recording of Phantom... Then I started to paint. Once the recording, and the performance were over... I stopped painting and just left it as It was.
Just a little monument to the 2.5 hour show, the record breaking 2.5 hour show that means so much to me and sooo many others.
...Its also the only way I stayed sane during those 2.5 hours...
