Creature From the Black Lagoon

This is a paper cutting I made for my co-worker and talented artist, Jay Stephens, for the annual Wyndham Art Supplies secret santa gift exchange.  I was lucky enough to receive a gift from Jay, pictured below, which has a hidden glow-in-the-dark secret message! So awesome!

Here is my post from last year's gift exchange.

I've also been simultaneously working on a series of cmyk dot paintings based on video stills from my mom's 8mm home movies,  (you may remember this video I made a while back also using this footage). The dots are first painted on rice paper using FW inks and then the paper is fixed onto a round wood panel.  I've only finished two so far, but that's not bad considering each one takes approximately 10 hours to complete.  Hurray for OCD!

Dot paintings.  7"diameter
