I am still working on Electric Six lyric illustrations, but with all the other work I’ve been doing, I haven’t gotten much of those done yet. I’m working on a “Dirty Ball” piece, but other than that, these are what new pieces I have. Two different versions of a pretty general print. It’s definitely something I’d like to give the band a copy of the next time I see one of their shows (hopefully in Nashville this October).

Would they mind receiving this as a fan-made gift?

Here’s the second piece in my serial killers series: Patrick Bateman (American Psycho).
I had to include him because his character is ridiculous… but that movie is ridiculous, so much you can’t not love it a little.
I was going to add more elements around him, like something different on the frame, and chainsaws and business cards… but when I looked at the simplicity of the final result, I think it looked great as is.
Dexter Morgan is next, I’m already working on it. And I will finish my Awesome Space Guys series soon after this one. I have a bad habit of starting new projects in the middle of ones I’m already doing.

I happened upon some more old poems from way, way back, like ten years ago. Like most things I’ve written, I’d rather conserve them here rather than have all these paper scraps pile up. Plus looking through my archive to read these when I feel like it is easier than having to look through a bunch of unorganized notebooks.

Poem 1

The sunny side isn’t so clear

When the crest of the sun is so near

You run to the clear of imagined joy

Harmlessly deceptive euphoria

Be not afraid of the dark in the corner

Or the clouds that shift in the morning over

Nothing seems straight

If you’re streaming scared

Don’t give yourself red moonlight crescents

Let yourself have a sunfield prescence

Array above your eyes cherry bloom petals

Deny the cold monster

And live the paradise of old ruin

(Geez, I thought I was deep or something. Typical teenager brain.)

Poem 2

Empty-pitted

Endless story

Everything stops where it’s at

And goes on forever in the paradise

Of breakdown

The sun that sets on the broken

Streets in Spring

That sets over the hopeful,

Desolate streets in paradise

The moon never comes out

But only the sun in the lost

and scared-wild midnite

Everything stops in the unsure tide

And rides on out to the curves

Of the empty-pitted,

Lousy-youthed dreams

Poem 3

Where has all the freedom gone?

The tapes of America songs…

No more plane flights to out west

No more plans to leave behind the rest

No more freedom, living alone

Never occurred to provide a home

No more nomadic excursions to the beach

No chance to deny love, to say the least

No dark summer midnites to get away

No chances to take to never stay

No second hand chain smoke

No roller coaster rides

No late nite coffee

No striding on the tides

No signs not to swim or flyers in the park

No dreams of what was to be, and breakfast in the dark

Doomed to marry—failed and loved

Just a nightmare (misunderstood)

Following the modus operandi

An unassigned job burned upon me

Never follow your idealists again

Sad to dream of only summers when

I was so happy with the progress of my Patrick Bateman portrait that I had to post a sample. This series is very fun so far.

The first in my serial killer portrait series: Hannibal Lecter.
Like I mentioned in a previous post, I wanted to combine elements of younger and older Hannibal so that any and all fans could appreciate it. I tried at least.

I apologize for the low quality photo.
Here are test prints of the Land of Ooo-inspired scouts. I’m going to sell these as little postcard-sized cardstock prints, primarily at conventions and if people ask (just message me). Not sure if I’ll put them in my stores yet. But if you’re interested, let me know!

Even though I have a million projects and series going on at the same time, me being me, I have started a new one. That’s just how I work. But I think you horror fans will enjoy this. The theme is film and television serial killers, and so far I have started a Hannibal Lecter piece that uses a portrait of younger Hannibal, but incorporates elements from Silence of the Lambs.

Other than that, the next portraits in the series will be:

-Patrick Bateman

-Sylar/Gabriel Gray

-Dexter Morgan

What do you guys think of that?

Here’s a cropped, no-background shot of the grouped image of all the “Land of Ooo Senshi”. I will make into a print later and may try and put out as a shirt design (if that’s okay).
This style is kinda fun!
