Blast from Christmas past

This photo was sent to me from Maria from Idaho, a very nice lady who was visiting our beautiful city the day she ran into me. It was taken during Christmas 2008 on Michigan Ave., and I remember it because it was one of the coldest days in which I took the ArtKart out.

New stencil paintings

"Sue Is Fine" 12 inches by 16 inches spray enamel on canvas
"Flowers For Josephine" 16 inches by 16 inches Spray enamel on canvas

These photos are kind of crappy because I took them before I varnished them. The glare from spray enamel makes it's hard to get a decent picture with a flash, so I had to shot with existing light. I meant to re-shoot them after varnishing them but I forgot and ended up selling them last night in the River North gallery district.

Latest Commission Painting

"SUPER COAL" 35 inches by 60 inches. Spray enamel and Benjamin Moore house paint.

My client wanted me to paint their family dog but they couldn't decide which picture to use. So, I took their
three favorite picture's and used a comic narrative to weave them all together in a cohesive way to showcase all of their pet's unique personalities. This family has had me do other stuff for them in the past and they always let me put my personnel stamp on every new assignment. I'd like to give a shout out to Philip, Rebecca, John and Em for all of their support towards my creative adventures. I'm pretty wasted in this photo. My regular respirator filter's were trashed so I was forced to make do with one of those disposable face mask one's. It didn't offer much protection because after 8 hours of spraying I was feelin a little warped -- as you can tell. Photos by Blake Fearn
