Wynken Blynken and Nod Tattoo (2009)

I'm so proud that someone out there likes my art enough to wear it permanently — now that's just crazy! This is the only tattoo I've ever made, but I'm open to the idea of making more in the years to come.

The art is based on a short children's poem. Follow the link below to read.

Mean Alice (2007)

Over the years, I have made a lot of Alice In Wonderland themed artwork. I've sold a few, and kept a few. This is one of the keepers. People usually laugh when they see this one, but hey, I know that deep down they LOVE it!

Kissing Skeletons (2003)

At the time I made this I was just starting to become interested in artistic anatomy, but still wasn't good enough to make anything very realistic. Later, I made a similar work called "Zombies In The Fog," but it was stolen just before it was completed. Art thieves be damned!

Orange Period (2003)

Scary Larry: 
The day I made this, a very strange model came into our class with a piercing in a most uncomfortable place. I felt compelled to do something a little different. The end result became a painting of a man morphing into a chicken, dancing on a dinner plate. Mars devouring his son, by Francisco de Goya, was also on my mind that day. If you haven't seen that image yet, I recommend following the link below.

This is an anatomy study with Dali-esque qualities. It was painted very quickly in an automatic free flowing manner.
