Alien Outlander for Pop Euphoria exhibit

A fellow artist Veronica Hebard spotted my alien character design a few posts back and asked if she could display it in her Pop Euphoria exhibit at the Aurora Gallery in Worcester, MA opening Dec. 6th, 2008. So I turned it into the 4th of my 3.5" x 3.5" acrylic on wood block paintings:

*Big hands make characters look mega cool, that goes as far back as Michaelangelo's David.

perfect for home gardens and flower arrangements :P

Renato the Rock Star

I did this one about a month ago for my creative director, Renato Castilho at since he hooked me up w/ my last two jobs, and is generally an awesome person. Rumor had it he used to be in a Prince cover band where he played Prince, thus the memoir here that I made for him as a thank you gift. The third of my 3.5" x 3.5" acrylic on wood paintings like Blue Moon and Little Devil.
