Too Bad for Them We’re Out of Here!

Too Bad for Them We’re Out of Here!
acrylic/enamel on canvas
16 x 20 in.

Too Bad for Them We’re Out of Here, loosely based on a panel from X-Men #5, revels in the exaggerated grittiness of 90s comic books.
Here’s to Extreme Everything!

Acrylic paint and Derwent Inktense water-based ink combine with line work done in Sharpie Paint Pen. Three coats of gloss acrylic varnish add brightness, protection, sheen, and durability.

Buy it on eBay.

gasmask girl

gasmask girl 1 - Copy

Obscured by smoke and a gasmask, her femininity may not be apparent at first. This study of a cartoon character we created zooms in for an intimate close-up, shrouded in mystery.

This is our first finished Gasmask Girl, but we’ll be seeing more of her. You can buy a print of Gasmask Girl, on everything from a greeting card to a full canvas print. Pretty cool!

pastel portraits 15 & 16

pastel portrait 16 - Copy

Here we have two pastel portraits on toned tan paper. In fact, these are the last two pages of the big notebook of tanned paper our art teacher gave us in July. Few gifts have ever been so well loved as this one, and we will definitely get a second notebook to fill with weird and wonderful things!

You can now get prints of Portrait #16, from greeting cards to full canvas prints, through FineArtAmerica.

We didn’t put #15 up for sale. She got some smudges on her. But she is fun, and we’ll do another like her with our next blank notebook.

the soul’s midnight
it must give way to the dawn
but lord knows the night is long
