Sons of Anarchy

final webFirst a big thank you to everyone who has been purchasing paintings and drawings from my web page. It’s really great to see things going out somewhere where someone else will get some pleasure out of them and having the cash flow is gratifying as well.

This is the jacket I have been working on which has taken much too long; you can see in progress reports here. I thank Asia for his patience. Denim isn’t the best thing to paint on… it seems to absorb the paint unevenly, so one has to do a coat, wait to dry, so another coat, etc. I think if I pursue this in the future I’ll look into either having it silkscreened onto canvas that can be sewn on the jacket (that is what Hal Rotter of Rotting Graphics seems to do) or contract one of these embroidery companies to make a patch. Painting it looks good (eventually, after all the coats are done), but I find myself constantly worrying, “What if I fuck it up? Then the jacket is ruined and I’m a heel…”

One last look, then I can drop it in the mail and Asia can start terrorizing all the ‘squares’ in his town by going all ‘Sons of Anarchy’ on their asses!
