I thought I'd give a sneakpeak of what I've been working on. These paintings are for a show happening in April 2013 at the Ltd. Gallery in Seattle, WA. Ltd is a pop art gallery and so all the pieces I will be showing there will be tributes and parodies. (Some of these aren't even titled yet). I've always enjoyed painting tributes of my favorite things, so I'm thrilled to be working on an entire body of work based on some of my artistic influences, favorite characters, stories, etc. Anyways, hope you like...
Here's the show info:
