Leatherface, Ed Gein Aerosol Mural.

...This October,
 in the spirit of Halloween, I did this Quick Aerosol Sketch Of the infamous ED GEIN, the man whose grotesque crimes were the Inspiration for the horror film Character, Leatherface, from the "Texas Chainsaw massacre" films, as well as numerous other horror film inspirations.....I'm not Really into Slasher films, so I had to do a bit of Research. Wild Horrific stuff happened by a man that I think was mostly lonely and a twisted as a result of his upbringing....watching some of the Ed Gein Documentary it put insight into this sick mans story......

Creativity concept, regarding audio.

hey all,

......I had a professor once tell me that .." ...when creating visually. ,  Music or audio should be something with out reckognizable words.....whether it be instrumental, beat or other.....also suggesting tracks in a foreign language or death metal...lol......the reason being that the part of the brain that is creative and the one that processes language are seperate....and it's time to focus....."............


I suggest adding movie, tv shows, playlists, vlogs, podcasts.....haul videos..(ha!)....etc...that you've already seen many times and don't have to look at or focus on to get.  that way you can be auditorially entertained and still focus on being creative...........

stay creative!

Invictus painting Series

 March,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dUDoo8B6cs

I'm excited about this one and really tried to expand my own horizons as an Artist. I've never pulled apart a body of text and filtered it's meanings to create a visual series of paintings before. 

it was a lot of fun to produce and took about 3 months.

the series consists of 50+ pieces.




moth leaves the flame. in process


Each painting contains simple narrative(s) in terms of subjects based on concepts presented in the Poem.

for example in" the Painting "moth Leaves the flame" ....the idea is the unconquerable human spirit ..as visualized by a moth leaving a large candle flame with a sublimated outer space scene commenting on recent advances is space exploration and potential for humans to leave earth.....

The series of paintings Range in size from 8 x 12" to 30 x 40" and are aerosol, Acrylic , collage, gouache, and various other mixtures used create desired effects.





New Bedford Harbor. 30 x 40: Acyrlic Aerosol Gouache Collage. for Sale.
