MacDowell and Pagan's Lowbrow Candy Store (TM)



Natural Mystics
Acrylic on Board
  16" x 20"

So I finally got around to putting together all the scans/images/photos I have from the Flatcolor opening last Thursday. Much thanks to everyone that came out. Nice to finally put some faces to names. If I seemed incoherent it was from lack of sleep, not paint fumes.

Anyway, it was a total honor hanging with Dave MacDowell. If you look at his stuff in the pics at the bottom of the post, you'll know why, or, just go to his website. You can also see all the pieces from the show on the Flatcolor preview page.



"Zod Crew"
Acrylic on Board
12" x 16"



"Rudy's Pussycat Den"
Acrylic on wood
23" x 20"



Couple of people were asking about the date on the Rudy piece. That painting was originally done for a Saturday Morning cartoon group show back in 2007, but it was the only one I didn't finish. It was about 65% done, so I decided to pull it out for this show and finish it up. The original idea was that it was an old Hanna Barbara lunchbox concept that never made it to the final stage of production. Hence, the curved borders. (I said hence.)

First off, apologies to Derek Riggs. Here's yet another "homage" to him, and to Animal/Muppets. Riggs did some door posters of Eddie back when Iron Maiden was blowing up. I couldn't resist doing another version of Animal, but bigger. I will also blame my buddy from high school, J. Trujillo, because he had the original door poster and asked me to draw it on his shin cast (Llamame baboso!). I guess that memory felt like it needed to come out somehow. I'll put some close-ups in the next post.














 Well, the show is up until the 27th. If you're down near Pioneer Square, get over to Flatcolor and check it out. Also, if you notice the Electric Mayhem piece in the pic above that looks like the one that was in the Muppet Rawk show last month, that's a canvas wrapped print. Just got 'em. If you want one, contact Flatcolor. They came out great and look just like the painting.

Anyway, check back soon. I'll start digging up some process shots  of the paintings and post those when I get a chance.

Until then, I'll leave you with my new favorite quote: "My work is a continuum. What makes a "body" of work is that it is grouped together and defined by and exhibition date." -Kent Williams
