Hidden cookies...

Thanks so much everyone who took the time to suggest their favorite cookies (from a  facebook post back in October) for the Cookie Monster painting that's now finished and on display in KICKFLIP at Galerie Abyss. I thought it would be fun to show you where the suggestions went and all the hidden cookies inside the painting. Enjoy with a glass of milk.

Cookie Monster painting

So here is the final skateboard painting I created for the show KICKFLIP (show runs till mid January):
In this painting, the Cookie Monster fights ANOTHER cookie monster - a Godzilla made entirely out of cookies!

Complete with chocolate chips and cookie crumb lettering.

I'll make a future post about all cookie types the Godzilla character is made up of. He's malicious AND delicious! (Look for it soon.)


Painting this skateboard for the show made me miss the days spent skateboarding with my friends. It was a big part of my youth.

The piece is currently still available. Contact the gallery if you're interested.

Yoda says...

So here's something I can share with you all now: this past Sunday November 9th, David, one of my best friends growing up, married the woman of his dreams. I was unable to attend the wedding in person in Australia, but I DID send this little doozie half way around the world to the newly wed Star Wars fans.
 Although it resembles an internet meme the piece was actually inspired by famed Illustrator James Mongomery Flagg's famous 1917 'I WANT YOU' United States army recruitment poster. (Yoda's quote also seemed like suitable advice for any married couple.)

James Mongomery Flagg's famous poster. It has been a VERY popular subject of parody over the years.
