100 Paintings in 100 Days - FULL VIDEO

Here is the full video that was put together documenting my 100 Paintings in 100 Days show that opened March 2015.  All the way from the beginning, following me to the exhausting finish line.  And celebrating at the opening in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988.  Enjoy! 

Special thanks to HUMANS who allowed me to use their music for the video.  Check out their new album Noontide!


100 paintings in 100 days...10 years later...

Good news, I am having my first big solo show In Los Angeles early next year at GALLERY 1988!
For those of you who have been fans long enough, you might remember my first art show.  Those who are newer to my work, next year it will be the 10 year anniversary from when I had my very first art show and I completed 100 paintings in 100 days. For my 10 year anniversary show, I'll be doing it again!
In the last 10 years I have come a long way.  My paintings from my first show almost look like they were painted by a completely different artist.  The first time I did 100 paintings in 100 days, I had the complication of also having a full time job.  Although I will be able to focus only on the painting this time, my work has also gotten a lot more detailed, precise and takes much longer.  So I suspect I will still be working my ass off to create this series.
I will be starting day one on September 1st. I will be posting progress, as well as some sneak peeks of pieces along the way.  I know that working 100 days straight will be hard and I will most likely be a complete mess afterwards, but sometimes art is pain!
Some of the things to expect to see in these 100 days: Pretty girls, circus freaks, four eyed kings, ghost forest girls, a tribute to the lovely and gory art of Anathema Photography, some pieces inspired by Alli Wynn Photography, and some of my favourite alternative models.  I'm excited, nervous and can't wait to show you what I have come up with.

This is what 100 wood panels looks like!  I can't wait to paint on these Trekell G.H.Simkins panels.

These are images from my first art show 10 years ago.  One of the original paintings and the original art display.


Which came first, the costume or the painting?

I love halloween!

Of course, the best day of the year.  Halloween ends up being an inspiration for my paintings, and sometimes my paintings end up being an inspiration for my Halloween costumes.  

So, which came first, the costume or the painting!?

In all of these pieces, the costume actually was done first then I drew my inspiration from them.  All except this years costume as my ringmaster/lion tamer.  I drew inspiration from several of my paintings I have done over the years.  Now to start thinking of what to be next year.


Playstation themes

If you have a Playstation, you can now get my art as a theme from the PS online store. As a collaboration with Disruptive Publishers, my paintings are brought to life with a bit of animation.  Go check them out, there will be even more released soon!
