Winston Smith

Doug Jones

Dennis Jones

I've liked his stuff for a long time. I was actually in a seminary class with his wife but I never got to meet him. Bummer!

Here Come the Aliens

I found this great children's book at the thrift store. It's really cool!

Art Dorks

Matthew Porter

Bluebottle Gallery

Visited this gallery on Sunday. Really liked the stuff by Matthew Porter. His alphabet series is very cool. I was surprised but relieved to see so much stuff painted on wood. It's cheaper than canvas.

Allen and Susan Crawford

Jelene Morris

Came across this today. I've actually seen her work in a coffee shop in Columbia, SC. Neat stuff. Very cartoony...the way I like it. She's very talented.

Hurricane Head

Perhaps it would be fun to do some character based paintings. Just come up with weird names and paint them. Hurricane Head, Tsunami Boy, and Collagen Girl are just a few strange names I've come up with. I could also use some of my old characters like Cap'n Seahorse or Captain Catfish for that matter. I remember when Gary's dad would use that term as an expletive. "Captain Catfish, I just spilled my beer!" Funny. Of course, he was drunk half the time.

Song Paintings

I recently saw where Garde Rail Gallery is having an exhibition of paintings based on the songs of the band They Might Be Giants. Cool idea! It would be interesting to do a series of artworks based on favorite songs. "Hero with 1000 Eyes" by Steve Lukather would be a good one. The image above is "Spiraling Shape" by Aaron Leighton.

Found this image at www.circusposterus.com. It has a robot in it. 'Nuff said.

Robot Painting

I love robots. Don't know why but I love incorporating them into my paintings. They are just cool!

Paint Chips

Create paintings using cartoon style incorporating "lowbrow" art sensibilities. Paint chips are a must.
