Bride of Boopenstein

Here is the whole painting I created for Slushbox Gallery's NERDCORE III group show that opened on Saturday. It was a fun challenge to create a painting with just black and white. It is a tribute to two of my favorite things to paint: cartoons and monsters. The cartoons are all from the era before color, some of the characters are rather obscure. The frame is custom as well

THAT LAUGH! - reference sculptures

Meant to share this with you all and then (I admit) I totally forgot about it, even after customizing a box for it and everything. While I was making the painting 'THAT LAUGH!', I had made small head sculptures of Daffy and Porky to draw them from tricky angles. With Daffy, I was trying to figure out what his bill would look like in an oblique angle (not often seen in cartoons). With Porky, I cheated a little bit - Porky doesn't actually have much of a neck, but in the painting he does, even though you don't see it.
