The Egg Man and Comet Boy

These are two similar pieces that I did in the last few days. I actually started the painting first, then while waiting for the first layer of oil paint to dry I made the drawing, then I went back and finished the painting. While they have notable structural similarities, they are also quite different. I would find it difficult to choose between them as to which I preferred.

Manipulator of the World

This is a new painting on plywood panel done in oil paint. I tend not to paint in oil during the colder months, as my studio is expensive to heat, so it's easier to work inside with acrylics. This is from some new oil paintings I'm working on at the moment. I took the photo while the paint was still wet, and you can see that in parts, such as the upper left blue sky, where the light is reflecting off the liquin (glazing/drying agent) I used with the paint.

The Book of Revelations

This is something I'm currently tinkering produce the series of paintings of The Book of Revelations as an actual publication, with some kind of narrative text(s). It will probably be a long, slow process, so don't expect anything anytime soon. This is just a teaser of what the cover might look like.
