You Pick!

I've got a problem from time to time because I make several versions of one Abstract because I like to see where I can take it. I had that problem with this Abstract. I'm asking you to pick the one you like the best so I can see what others are thinking. Let me know which version is your favorite! I'll have more soon. Enjoy Summer! -Mike

The night in two

Another NEW Abstract! This one taking apart the cityscape and rebuilding it. Hope you dig it. See you next post.

Some pages from my Graphic Novel

Early pages from my Graphic novel. I'm still working on the art for it. I'm up to 179 pages of art and have another 150 to go. I'll whittle it all down to about 200 pages by the time it's all done with all the cropping and reduction of panels. Most of the art will be in there from what I'm doing now. Check out next post and enjoy your summer!

Yellow Robot head!

This image is part of a much larger painting that I did a year and a half ago. It's too big to scan on my little old scanner. The best part of the painting was this square in the lower left corner. I always thought it should be a painting just on it's own merit. So I put the scanner on the floor and scanned this into the computer in 6 parts and stitched it together in Photoshop. Showing it for the first time here and on Image Kind, where it is available as a print.

Bel Mar Abstract!

I started the idea for this at the restaurant Bel Mar in Ballard on Sunday during a lite dinner. Finished it off today! It seemed to look a bit like a bug to me so I named it the Bel Mar Bug. I'm sure they won't be happy about that but who knows if they will ever see it.
Saw "Public Enemy" last night with my friend Anne. Terrific flick although it could have been shorter and not so redundant. Usual Michael Mann type of story. The stylizing was awesome. A great looking piece of film!
Also woke up to January like weather here in the PNW!! Not good for July! Usually we have sun and warmth,... which I would like it to return to by the end of this week at the latest!
Hope all is well. See you next post!
