The Nightman Cometh and Goeth...

You may have noticed that I've been making a lot of posts regarding my Nightman Cometh painting recently, so let me explain...

Soon after finishing my Nightman Cometh painting I got the idea to look up the cast members on Twitter and I found that Glenn Howerton (Dennis), Danny DeVito (Frank), Charlie Day (Charlie), and Kaitlin Olson (Dee) all have personal accounts. I tagged them all in a tweet linking to the finished painting posted on my blog. I thought it would be really awesome if the cast of one of my favorite shows could see my painting.

Danny and Glenn complimented me on the painting and a few hours later I got an email from Glenn's assistant Sean asking if it were possible to buy the original. We made a deal. As you can see from the photo below, my Nightman Cometh painting is now in the hands of "Dennis" from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia". This has been a great experience for me. It's been such a blast interacting with the people who have created a show that brings me so much enjoyment!

Frightened Spirit drawings

Here's a drawing for a piece I'm working on right now. The 2nd version has trees blocked in with Photoshop. I'll be starting the painting very soon.

Gnarly Tree

I'm REALLY proud of this drawing. I incorporated a lot of reference of trees that I collected myself and that's not something I do as often as I should. Not only do I have a drawing I'm extremely happy with, but I've been reminded the value using reference. I plan on adding some critters scattered around the scene and painting the piece digitally in the near future.
