HAIL TO THE FREAK!



So finally a traditional painting once more! This is the painting I spoke of in the last post. The show failed to go up because of some stupid shit but thats besides the point. Going back to acrylics wasn't really as hard as I thought it would be. It was a lot of fun and I kinda just went with this drawing without too much thought behind it. The show was supposed to be about freaks so it was an excuse to do a fun character. I didn't have much time to do it so it made me work fast and not overthink or over noodle shit. I am hoping to do quite a bit more in the immediate future. Till then enjoy this one and feel free to drop me a line.
P.S. This is the final custom vinyl toy I did for the Grumpy Freak Show held here at the American Greetings world headquaters. The show was awsome and it raised a lot of money for a good cause. Check out the blog from my links to see other great Grumpys.

Shit man, this stuffs lookin amazing. The Painting looks so good. I love the designs you got goin on with the doll. Everything turned out really good. Your slowly turning into a sick,creepy fuck you know that right. We should start our own company man, the sick FUCKS studio.
