Today I’ll be putting the finishing touches on this corpsepaint face painting. It’s going to be the sixth in the series. I plan to stop at seven. It’s time to move on to some other projects.

If anyone is local to Chicago, you may want to stop by the OhNo!Doom gallery Saturday August 11 through August 30. There just so happens to be a terrific Adventure Time! tribute show, featuring over 40 artists, including myself. The show opens Saturday (oh, that’s almost here) August 11 from 6 PM through 10 PM.

This piece incorporates pyrography, gouache, acrylic, modelling paste, and graphite.

Citadels burning

Posted in Art, Projects, Technique with tags , , , , , , on November 24, 2010 by scratchyb

I’m embarking on a new body of work that reflects the growing interest I have in wood-burning without sinking into kitsch.  Most of the pieces I have planned out will be figurative, although I’d like to try experimenting with what wood-burning can do in a more expressive, abstract form.  While the appearance of the medium lends itself to a meticulously realistic approach, the very nature of working with heat and wood allows for accidents that have the potential to be aesthetic works in their own right.  But abstract isn’t generally my thing, so for now I’ll stick with the figurative, such as the recently finished piece I’ve called “Citadels.”

This was done with a combination of pyrography, ink, and guache.
