This is Uga looking mad. He is scrappy, slobbery, he has a bad attitude and he likes to get in brawls with talented teams who play like they are afraid to get hurt.

Deconstructed Fish

Deconstructed Fish

This is a deconstructed fish. It is not quite analytic cubism. It is inspired by an interview I had about 10 years ago. The employer asked me about a piece of work that had a fish in it. Among other things I mentioned how i identified with fish and how my dad threw baby fish he caught over the bank to allow the other fish to get larger by limiting competition. I said I used to rescue them and throw them back into the pond when he wasn’t looking. I also mentioned how fish are like aliens who live in a parallel dimension and that I don’t like eating them after watching my dad clean them once. She literally gasped as if I am a dim wit and had crossed some invisible line that proved I was some sort of latent murderer. She obviously saw that I have a lazy eye and had decided that it meant I couldn’t be trusted because I was obviously uncomfortable talking to her as she stared at me. It also didn’t matter that I was a good decade ahead of all of her art employees in design and computer skills and that I had already established that I would work for entry level wages. The moral of the story is don’t tell people what analytic cubism is actually about when you are applying for a job that pays minimum wage. They won’t understand. I have dealt with this kind of nonsense my entire career and it is why i have worked mostly under the table for screen printers in the middle of nowhere. Does this fish scare you? It should. Rubs hands vigorously.

Spongebob Homeless and Depressed

Spongebob is feeling kind of depressed. He has been on land too long and it has dried him out and weighed on his normal chipper outlook. He was evicted and is missing his pineapple under the sea.

Beetle Juice Sand Worm

Sand Worm From Beetle Juice

I love Tim Burton’s imagination. He has famous sketchbooks where he created the creatures from all of his most magical movies. He went to Cal Arts with other Disney big shots like Brad Bird and John Lasseter.

Happy Pill

Happy Pill

This is a happy pill. He is happy. He looks at himself in the mirror for hours and practices smiling so that people won’t think he is creepy. He has massive bags under his eyes from worry and too much coffee and not enough sleep.

05 Ford GT Painting

2005 Ford GT Side
2005 Ford GT Side

This is an old timey airbrush painting of a car that is a throwback to the 60s. The gt40 was one of the coolest American cars ever made and the star of the movie Ford vs Ferrari. The GT was a remake of that race car. I remember back when I was first starting to post my work online – around 2005 – forum mods would accuse me of using photo manipulation. At the time I didn’t even know what that was. I had taught myself to paint using photoshop in an airbrush with frisket manner. For people who don’t know – it means that you use flat shapes that you carefully cut out to control where the spray goes. It lets you make highly realistic paintings from scratch. They would always take my work out of the art section and put it in the photography category to let me know that they thought I was cheating. I bet those guys are still mad in 2021.

Cthulhu Kid

Cthulhu Kid

In “The Call of Cthulhu”, H. P. Lovecraft describes a statue of Cthulhu as: “A monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind.”
I updated him with more human eyes and some scales.

Pigeon Wearing Pigeon Dunks

This is a hip city pigeon wearing purple Nike Pigeon Dunks, a fat gold chain and a louis vuitton gradient pattern on his shiny oily neck feathers. He waddles the streets of Brooklyn spittin’ Biggie bars and looking for discarded roaches. I like sneaker culture. It is amazing how the og SB NYC Pigeon dunks are $55k on Stockx. Edit: I made many changes trying to capture the shiny look of pigeon feathers and finally got it. Also went back and painted his shoes.

This is a chubby red monster with nappy hair and giant blue eyes on eye stalks. He is influenced by Pepe the frog. He has much pathos – pudgy blue feets and four arms for huging his frens. Feels good man.
