Honk On Bobo

My piece for the PlanetIllogica show in San Diego.

"Honk On Bobo"
12" x 12", Oil on board

In Progress

Mark Murphy invited me to participate in the show for the launch of his new site PlanetIllogica at a space near ComicCon in San Diego. Since I'd taken a long hiatus for a year or so, I thought this would be a good show to for me to do and since I didn't have anything laying around for it, it would force me to create something new. So with less that three weeks to do it, here's the piece I came up with and the progression. Only requirements were that it needed to be 12" x 12".

With little time to spare, the first sketch I came up with was what I decided would be the painting....

I originally planned on her wearing a see-thru shirt.

While painting, her face started to change from the original sketch... a little scarier. It's starting to look like a Killer Klown from Outerspace.

I didn't like the shape of her boobs so I roughed in the new shape.

New boobs.

Frizzy hair didn't last to the finished piece.

Late to the party... as usual.

I'm working on some new work so I finally decided to start a blog to show what I'm working on. Here I'll post some work in progress and other miscellaneous crap. Probably a lot of useless boring garbage that no one cares about.. but isn't that what blogs are for?
