Weird title but better than ‘untitled.’ This portrait was a result of listening to Concrete Blonde music all day. There’s a couple songs about and older woman who outlasts the dudes she parties with. This is a representation of that, plus it’s normalizing beauty in aging.
She has braved the passing centuries from her imprisonment in Csejte. She’s older, wiser, and far, far more dangerous.
I really don’t have anything artsy or insightful to say. I just wanted to create something with the single source strong light, and am ambient light, which was used a lot in Dutch / Northern Renaissance paintings. She’s bloody, she could use a shower, but she’s survived. Here’s the close-in.
I wanted to name this digital art “Boy” after the Book of Love song I was listening to on repeat while creating it, but that would be falling into a familiar rut. What’s it about? Three generations of women? Nope, it’s the same woman over a lifetime. From the brilliant light of youth on theContinue reading “A Lifetime”
The genesis of this digital artwork is a couple things. First, I worked on it right after watching the Netflix documentary about Elisa Lam and the tragedy at the Cecil Hotel in L.A. This isn’t about her though, no connection, unless you want it to be a positive one. No cyber bullying, like what happenedContinue reading “Fearless”

In today’s digital artwork, which for some reason just finished a four-hour rendering (maybe the rig was offended), I explore the dark side of the Romanticism movement. I’ve drawn on David Caspar Friedrich, who IMHO isContinue reading “Postpartum”
This started as on of the typical full gymnast / ballerina poses to try and box the photo. I then realized I needed another dancer to do that. That worked but it was boring. Then as I was going through the color coordination of the outfits, I was, like, “what if I took the floorContinue reading “Full Rehearsal”
My time has been sucked up by other, more worldly needs lately, so here is another video of my artwork from around Spring. I created it in the bowels of the night while my insomnia had me staring at the ceiling. The music lends an Edward Scissorhands / dreamy feel to the composition. All theContinue reading “Busy, but…”
I’m truly sorry I’ve not done anything in the last couple of days. I’m working through proposals at work (to pay for my art!) and skin cancer to boot, but last night at 3ish, I made this video of recent art (going back to October (ish). I’ll get creative again soon! I kind of wantContinue reading “Video of Recent Art”
