Dollies

As my arm gets some of its strength back, I have made some attempts at picking up the brush, It feels weird.
I can't hold the brushes like I use to, So I have to alter my technique a little bit.
Im hoping to be at full strength by mid January, but I know thats my impatience talking..

My introduction to sex!



Growing up in the late 70s to early 80s. My Father would drool in a hypnotized state facing the television, with a justified reason. Iris Chacon would be on, shaking her sexuality and soothing us with her singing voice.


This for me was my introduction to sex, Puerto Rican sex! A potent blend of color, sound and movement.

Its no wonder why today I am slave to beautiful voluptuous woman. They inspire me more than any thing else in this world, And I will continue to show my love to them till my last breath leaves this earth.



Big thanks to my Pops and huge sloppy thank you to Ms. Chacon

Return of the dead

So I broke my arm about 4 weeks, and now I'm sort of have- half my strength back. Lifting my arm feels like lifting 80 pounds one handed. and when ever I go to grab something, you can hear the crunching sound which worries me a bit. I was able to write a little similar to my left hand which is a big difference since 2 weeks ago. Normally these type of fractures take up to 6 to 8 weeks to heal..and that's not even expecting a perfect arm again.


its been hell for me, considering all the projects and clients I had to sideline. I'm really hoping in the next 2 weeks to gain full control and strength to really get to work.

anyway's, I couldn't wait any longer so I grabbed a pencil and pen and started to force my arm to obey my commands,...so far this is where I'm at...not great..but something...

"Oh Art Gods..please bless me arm to full health so that I can get back into the scene with images of wonder"...

"or at least strength enuff to choke someone out!..."



AFreakinamen!

Broken!

Due to some nonsense, I broke my drawing arm today. Yup broke it!. Not sure when it will be healed let along if it will heal at all!. Worst part is, I'm unable to create any work...and that for me is torture!

I will make attempts in the mean time with the left, but it will be only to kill the boredom or to stop from killing myself.

witch doctor

This piece here is another addition to Aztec erotic art that I'm working on. Titled Witch Doctor..the female shaman is helping to suck the demons out of our poor infected princess...


here's a step by step process of how I go about doing some of my illustrations.
( I have  habit of going over paintings I dont like any more)

The grid process helps me fit everything into the space Im working in.


once I have blocked in all the major colors in acrylic...I then finished the art work in Oil..
At the moment this painting is about 60% done..took about 7 hours. When I start the painting in oil, the mind set has to be different, since the paint needs to be handled differently. That will most likely be another 7- 8 hours..so in total, two sit ins.

build that shit!

so I was getting tired of having my loose canvas tossed in my studio corners...or in big ol bags...
so I got some tools and put my carpenters hat on..
Ripped out some ugly cabinets that were on the wall..and made my self some space to put my canvas in..
took me about 4 hours to do..most of the work was just measuring things out..spent about 100 bucks on tools and screws..
the wood..I dug up in my shed...one of these days Ill paint all one color..but for now..Im glad to organize my work.

next....maybe some stretched draws for my sheets of paper..

Italian Goddess

When I first layed eyes on her ,I knew she was going to be mine in some shape, way or form..
She is the envy of many woman and men alike . She reminds me of one of those European Goddess paintings you see at National museums. But over all..she as sweet as a Saint. Putting her on top of my extended list of muses.

thank you

G40 Art Whino May 19th

I will be participating again with Art whino this year G40 show...the last one was crazy huge with so much art. this year I will be flexing my Tiki art.


Art Whino returns in 2011 for the second edition of G40. The first G40 art summit in 2010 compounded artistically explosive cultures from all over the world and brought them to the DC metro area. By bringing all of these cultures from throughout the world to one place it allowed the visitor to be fully immersed in over 2000 works by 500 artists organized by floors corresponding to their cultural hubs.

This year G40 explores not cultures but the genres which are on the forefront of creative transitions and growing in large scale with hundreds of thousands of fans throughout the world. Some of these genres include Customized collectibles, Skateboard Art, Stencil, Wheat Paste and 3D Installations.

The G40 Art Summit is a unprecedented experience in the art world with its scale and caliber of artists from around the world. This year the summit comes to the city next to the U street corridor taking over an entire 25,000 sqft building and showcasing art on all of it 4 floors. From over twenty artists showcasing 16’ Murals to traditionally displayed artwork the summit will definitely have sensory overload requiring multiple trips to take in all the treats for the eyes.

King of Monsters

Growing up..Godzilla was a treat for me to watch on TV Sunday afternoons..usually before the kungfu movies started.

Here in this painting, I wanted to do the beast walking through the city just squashing everything to rubble, from a pilots view point. Im liking the comp on this one and will continue to work on it till satisfaction.



At this stage Im still fleshing it out a bit,aircraft and buildings are only about 50% done.

Harley Davidson

ArtWhino Gallery is putting together a exhibit with a Harley Davidson theme at the end Feb, they also are using some gas tanks as canvases...I never painted on a gas tank before..the closes thing I came to  painting anything motor cycle-ish was a few helmets...backin the days when I had air brush fever..
It seemed like a fun idea and Im always up for a challenge..here is what I have so far...Im planning on doing more blue flames on the side of the tank. Im sure I'll add more to as time goes on.




here are some shots of my Comfy studio..its not much..but I get plenty done in it..

A lesson for other artist

Back in Halloween 2010..I was asked to submit work by Chastity Sollmer of (ArtistsCompound ) out in Baltimore MD



( here is where you young artist come in )

Normally I like to get either a consigned contract or insurance on the art work for protection...but since this time around I was going on faith, I decided to pass on it and send in some work..


It took a while to get back the art because of scheduling purposes..but I was able to Drive up and get them while on a road trip..when I finally open up the packages to see some of my work chiped and scratch!..the frame isn't such a big deal..but the art work is another thing..


It was my dumb mistake to put faith into would be curators who doesn't respect the artist and there work.
when dealing with people in the art Business,,make sure ,,go over all the fine print and protect your self..
this isn't the first time,,and I'm sure it wont be the last...
I hope up coming artist take this lesson to heart and learn from it...





..She did offer payment for the damaged painting, but as of yet I recieved nothing and I doubt I will from her.
