Raygun Love

Happy Leap Day! To celebrate Leap Day, I'm taking a LEAP back into space (that's as clever as it gets here, folks...). Bear and Bird Gallery's open-to-all-artists show, Square Show 2, is next month. I played around with an idea, sketched it out, even got it fully pencilled on the board. But I wasn't excited about it so I erased the whole thing and pencilled a completely different idea. I'm glad I did because I had so much fun with this piece:

Raygun Love I

By sheer coincidence, next month's show at Zapow turned out to be a sci fi theme show! So I decided to take my painting and idea further and turn it into a faux pulp cover. I plan to do 2 more paintings for a series. Here's the first one:

Limited Editions giclees will be available at the gallery.

Prints will be available online at my store -
