red line through me & Perception of Pain


     Rediscovered this guy tonight.  Like the look in his eyes.  This is one of a series of Sharpie drawings I’m doing on what turned out to be some pretty crappy watercolor paper.  Well, I suppose it’s really more a matter of taste.  If you happen to ENJOY painting on a material that is basically thick paper towel then I guess it would be the PERFECT watercolor paper for you.  For me, I’ll be sticking with the Strathmore from now on.

     In other news, I have officially licensed some artwork to Perception of Pain.  Speaking of which, they will be playing a gig this Tuesday, February 4th in Calgary.  If you’re in the area definitely stop on by and give a listen!!

     Thanks for taking a look and have a good week : )

Perception of Pain and The Fuzzy Skeletonian

     I am pleased to announce that I am working with a newly formed band from Calgary, Canada called Perception of Pain.  Head on over and check them out!  They are interested in artwork for their merch sales that depicts pain and suffering.  Not exactly sure why they chose my style of art…


…but I guess life can surprise and mystify you at times : )

     I’ll keep you crazy kids posted as things progress here at The Fuzzy Skeletonian!

pissed off cocks and how I roll on commissions

(click)

     As promised, here’s the aforementioned pissed off cock commission.  I completed this in the same nose bleed style as all of my giveaway pieces from this past year’s OPG.  Same markers, same watercolor, same everything.

     I must say it was interesting to do a close-up of just a fuzzy skeletonian cock.  It was also interesting to find that mailing this off wasn’t as difficult as I would have imagined in the past.  I think it was because I was following someone else’s basic concept and, therefore, didn’t feel a great amount of ownership of the piece once it was finished.  All in all, I was very glad to go through the process.

     If you’re curious about my new commission policy here’s a brief summary until I get the actual page up:

1.  Tell me what you’d like:  Size, basic idea, maybe give examples, citing from what’s already on my blog.  Based on the size and complexity I’ll give you an estimate on cost.

2.  I’ll brainstorm a bit and come up with a prototype idea piece for you to evaluate.

3.  Once you give me the go ahead, I’ll take the obligatory artistic liberties and finish the piece.  I’ll stick to the size, orientation and basic idea but I will likely take liberties with the a lot of the final details.

4.  I’ll send you a scan of the finished piece and you can decide at that point if you still want to pay for it or if you’d like me to try again.

     That’s the basic process at the moment.  I’ll go into more detail when I get the actual commissions page all fleshed out.  Thanks for stopping by.
