It’s been a long ass time since blogging. I’ve been so busy between work art and the gym (especially work putting in that overtime!), but rest assured I’ve been working hard on some new concepts and ideas that I would like to share. Also I got my canvas to start painting Untamed so I’m very excited about that
**BEAST MODE SERIES**
I had the idea to do paintings of some animals in a similar fashion like they have on ancient warrior’s shields. I put a more realistic spin on the animals. Here’s what I came up with so far:
I’m not sure how many more I will do but I’ll definitely do a couple more.
I decided to fuck around and do an illustration of a black monk just because. Bald and dangerous he is with the nunchakus. Watch out! Its not quite dont yet but it is a work in progress. Check it out:
That’s all for now. I will be continuing to put more content out as the months go by. I’m getting ready for a showing Nov 10& 11th so I’m aiming to have more out by then. Take care for now.
Good morning ☁️👑
This is some of my recent work. The Untamed study is finished and I also completed a tiger study. Enjoy!
The tiger studies is for an upcoming painting…
Meanwhile, ill be starting the canvas painting portion of Untamed this weekend.
For now, take care and stay tuned for future blog entries!
Granted this painting is not done yet, I have the underpainting study version done and I’m just working out the colors now…
I wanted to create a powerful and uninhibited type of work that reflects on what it’s like to not give a fuck of what people think about you or even what society thinks about you.
So without further Ado, Here is the underpainting for Untamed…
What better way to do it than with stallions, (aka uncastrated horses)? The genitals hanging out on the rearing horse helps drive the point home while the lightning helps reinforce their strength and power with utmost certainty.
Next to follow will be the color. That’s for a different blog post though. It’s time for me to get going. I’ve got to get started on the day.
Take care for now ☁️👑
Good Morning ☁️👑
It’s another day that has begun and what better thing to do than blog a new art entry? So here we go.
Recently, I finished a commission for a friend and I just wanted to post it here for your viewing pleasure. This has nothing to do with the current body of work I am focusing on, but it does scream of contrasts and duality which is what is usually prevalent in my work anyway.
I unfortunately havent seen my friend yet so i still have the piece. Since this piece, I’ve sworn off commissions for a while, so that I can concentrate on my current body of work.
As I’ve said in the previous post, I’m working on a painting of 2 stallions. Currently it’s in the color study phase , so its safe to say it’s moving along. I’m going to get moving as well and start my day. Take care for now!
I’ve meant to post this for a while…
This is the final version of the Roman helmet study I posted a while back, re rendered on a 16x 20 canvas. I’ve since renamed this piece. Here is the final result:
It looks pretty badass I think. This is the direction I’m going in with my work…a more agressive, masculine energy oriented style of expression. It is reflective as my journey of trying to improve and develop myself as a man, and as such my art will reflect that. Its like a warrior’s quest with all of it’s highs and lows.
Currently, I am working on a painting of 2 stallions and I will post that when I get far enough to a point that I feel it is worth posting. Take care for now ☁️👑
…But you can avenge it.
This is an idea that I’ve pondered for a long time.
When you have regrets/bitterness about chances you never took, people who fucked you over or respect you never got, you eventually get to a place where you get fucking pissed off enough about it that you say ‘Enough is enough!’ Destroy all roadblocks in your way .and go get what you fucking want.
It’s a thing i see in life a lot of times that people just stop fighting for their happiness and walk away from creating a world that they would like to live in. I tell myself that I will not have that fate.
So the nature of this piece is just that. To shake off past defeats and reawaken the inner inferno that was filled with life , purpose and direction.
The knife represents the tools youre armed with to navigate this complex world while the blood on the knife represents the challenges and the battles of life. Lately, I’ve been trying to look at conflicts in life as nothing more than tests to see where your “armor” has weaknesses in them and it’s definitely helped a lot in my own life.
That’s all for now. I have one more piece I have to finish before my show on Saturday. I am confident I will get it done.
Until next time,
What’s going on ?
Im back again for another creative work update… I was recently commissioned by a coworker to do a painting of the Leonard P. Zakim bridge in Massachussetts…but with some of my R.Mac touch to it. You’ll see what I mean soon.
This co worker is actually from Somerville, Mass and also wanted some mention of his hometown in the painting. He also wanted some of the cosmic nebula type atmosphere as well… after some planning conceptualizing, color studying and finalization, this is what emerged from my brain’s gray matter:
So that is what came about of the commission(which he absolutely loved very much). Thanks in advance for taking the time to check out my blog. I have a few ideas that I’m working on now so I will be posting in the near future.
Take care for now,
