A digital rendering of a painting. I forgot to take a photo of it before I sold it. I used bits from other paintings for the background. I liked the original and had it hanging for some time before I even did the bulk of the spray paint, the girl. It was one of the canvases that I brought back from school and reworked several times. Title comes from the book I used for most of the paper. 25 x 36 inches.
This was the begining of the digital paintings.

A new digital painting. I've been doing stuff with shapes that are more geometric and the like to change it up and progress. In addition, I wanted to do something that used the silhouette in a different way. The first draft of this had the figure in negative space with black surrounding her, it didn’t work for me so I just used the shape and lightened the backgrounds and foregrounds, I think it worked.

Found at a thrift store for $2.50 each. I've been looking for something to paint on and thought these would be interesting, then I decided to keep them as is. I might do some digital overlay at some point.

I have been thinking about doing a Jonny Quest image for the past week, this is what I ended up with. Originally, it was a thin banner, but I thought it needed more of environment so it got bigger. The banner was about the size of the figures, the top was about an inch above the skull, the bottom about an inch below the feet.
I went into this with the idea I might do a t-shirt, but I think this is not going to be the final draft, I think it needs some more work and maybe more of an action shot of 'Jonny."

The cover was during a time when Wonder Woman gave up her powers and lived as Diana Prince, a normal human with no super powers who ran a Mod-clothing boutique, fighting crime in her spare time. This version of Wonder Woman was a thinly veiled imitation of Mrs. Emma Peel from The Avengers. The cover is attributed to Mike Sekowsky and Dick Giordano.
I drew a second version with a slightly different composition and further removed information, just the figure and implied shadow of the gunman. I feel this is a better representation of my style than that of my first try. I stylized the cover a bit more with a shortened price and issue number box, a new font for the title and a modified barcode. If you scan the barcode, it would have all the publishing information. I felt the painted target on her back wasn’t enough, so multiple targets replaced it. The dirty framed edges are something I’ve been using in my other art for sometime now, it works for this.

I reworked this from a version made on the obamicon.me site. Originally I saw an image like this on teefury and missed the deadline for purchase. The Obamaized version was a bit lacking in detail, so I cleaned it up a bit especially around the lettering.

So I’ve decided to create a new blog in addition to the Boxspring Creative blog, yes I know I never really write on that, or any of the other places I am supposed to write, so adding yet another thing to ignore seems a bit of a waste. But it’s not, and I will tell you why. The purpose of this new blog is to show artwork I’m planning, working on and stuff that I’ve finished that doesn’t necessarily fit in with Boxspring Creative or as projects for Gapers Block.
Why Project: Wall? Well, it’s a project about stuff that may go up on walls.
