Millennium Falcon targetting computer Stencil

I made three of these stencils. I cut the stencil by hand. Was a little challenging since it was a straight computer graphic and had very straight lines. Here are the progress pics!

Started with three 20X24 canvas boards. The texture of the canvas seems to work well with the stencils and spray paint. Isn't as fussy as the super smooth wood I usually use for stencils. I laid the yellow down first.

Cat keeps biting and clawing my arm while I am trying to cut the stencil!

After some cat bites I finally finished the stencil. Ta-Da!

Here I went in and added the arrows that signify the tie fighers flying past. At this stage I also went in with white paint and touched up some bleeding that happened while adding the red paint.

Almost done.

Here is the finished one. I am varnishing the other one and its drying outside. And the third one didnt turn out well and reclaimed the painting for another project.

Sketch Update

So I got an 11X14 sketchbook because I always seem to be drawing beyond the normal 9X12 sketchbook page. Here are a couple from the book. My scanner is only for 8.5X11 sized paper so there is some cropping.

This sketch is an idea I had of an alien parasite attaching itself to a space ship. It's sprouted legs and is carrying the ship around on it's back pretty much lol

This is an astronaut who has come back from his mission infected with an alien germ. He is posing for his portrait and his new friend is making an appearance.

Bat Boy

I drew this while waiting for a movie to start. Yes, I took my sketchbook out in the theater lol. Totally free hand, had no idea where I was going with this one lol

Astronauts infected with Space Parasites!

I've been doing some sketches of a series I am working on. The story thus far is that these astronauts were on a mission that took them into deep space. During their journey they somehow got infected with space parasites that, once back on earth, started showing themselves and taking over the astronauts bodies. These sketches are brainstorming, I haven't quite gotten the look down yet, it's not exactly what I have imagined in my head, but close. Check it. Give me your feedback!

This first guy has been transformed into some kind of flying bat creature. He flies around cities all over the world still wearing what remains of his space suit.

This next fellow has had the misfortune of being infected with a gigantic moth type insect who is much larger than the ones found on Earth. The creature is trying to take flight but cannot get airborne because it's dragging along the still live astronaut.

This nasty fellow is growing inside the confines of the cosmonaut's still intact space suit. The creature is finding gaps in the seams to continue growing from.

Lastly there is the crab monster, the largest of all the parasites. The human host is just along for the ride.

These are all ideas I have been playing with. I am still trying to find the groove.

New Barbarians

New Barbarians is a really amazing movie, it's hilarious and so much fun to watch. Check out the Review here. They are playing it at The Loft Cinema in Tucson , a theater I adore because they're independent and pretty much the only theater in Arizona that plays movies that I like. They play movies like this every Monday for their Mondo Mondays series.

VHS tape collection

Here are some pics of my small vhs tape collection. I really love the Roger Corman ones such as Deathrace 2000, Humanoids from the Deep and Piranha. They're a lot of fun to watch. I wish that "lowbudget" film makers would still make movies like these. When I was a kid, I would constantly watch "From Star Wars to Jedi". I would also stare at the cover and really think hard about which one of the models I like the most. I would pretend that I could take one home. I think I always chose the Blockade Runner.
