Thoughts on the Dino Show, and a Question.
All sorts of fun things going on here in preparation for the next art show in October. You may have already seen the t-shirts and the new calendar, but there are also 18 new metalflake paintings in the works. Right now they’re scattered all around my studio, in various states of completion.
Here’s a sneak peek:
We’ve got paintings as small as 3×4 inches, and as large as 20×20. Some will have designs based on the illustrations in my calendar, and some will have designs that are just rough concepts at the moment (hey, there’s still plenty of time). Just the other day, for example, the Agent and I were talking and she suggested doing paintings based on dinosaur fossils.
Clearly she’s a genius, because this opened up whole new areas of creativity for me. This T-Rex skull design is already on a t-shirt, but on a metalflake painting I think it’ll blow people’s minds:
I’ve also got an idea in mind that involves revamping the whole metalflake technique so it’s even more three-dimensional. But that may have to wait for another show.
There may also be some other dinosaur-related merchandise available, but that’s still top-secret for now. Mum’s the word.
While I’ve got your attention, what’s your favourite dinosaur?
