More Uplifting: Some Aesthetically Pleasing Art

Here is one of the paintings i've been doing in the last few months, as well as a few photos. Anyone interested in inexpensive prints (as well as smaller, even less expensive items like fridge magnets, postcards, mousepads, etc.) can check out my online store here. My online gallery has dozens of images free for download as well. My free gallery can be visited here.

Just click the thumbnail to see a larger version. I'm having some hosting problems right now or else i'd have more to see here. You'll just have to go look at the gallery now.

The First Post

So i finally broke down and started a "blog." I'm still not really for the idea but i know it can get my artwork some extra exposure. I didn't want to start this thing off bleakly, but this is kind of what's going on right now.

For those who don't know, about six weeks ago, 4 drunk assholes showed up on my front porch in the middle of the night while i happened to be out having a cigarette. When i asked them to leave the four of them literally beat my skull into the ground, repeatedly choked me into unconciousness, and repeatedly punched me and stomped with boots on my face, finally leaving me for dead in my own front yard.

A month and massive reconstructive surgery later, i have been unable to get myself to draw or paint anything since until today. My wise friend told me to "paint the pain." It will be a long time before i can paint "pretty" pictures again, but i did this. It's like Picasso mashed with Ralph Steadman or Dave McKean, but this is What's Left right now.
