If you think models are really that perfect...

Ask a person who spends hours a day retouching high fashion and other type images. We know a model's every dirty little secret. We just cover them up.

2 1/2 Years Later...

I am the admin for an art forum called Sketch Kult which has a fantastic Pinstripers' forum in it. Back in October of 05 somebody came up wit the idea of doing a panel swap, with a lucha libre theme. I had mine about halfway finished when the 'deadline' hit but had hit a wall with it. Luckily the person I was to send it to, Ray, has an abundance of patience. So, January of 2008 I finally get this finished.

I had a lot of frustration with this piece. The original parts from 05 are the mask in the center, and the border. I Couldn't figure out how to finish it. Even considered painting a different thing to send to Ray. Finally I just went for it.

Ray is going to be the sole owner of something that has old art and new from me. There's not another piece of mine out there like that.

*%#@!! Rain!

Dammit!! Had my creative mojo going this afternoon, spraying up a few panels to get ready to paint. Unfortunately my only place to spray up panels right now is outside. Got a couple pieces of aluminum ground out and ready to put candy colors on, took one outside to start... soon as I did it starts SPRINKLING!!!!

I know we need rain so I'm not going to say I wish it wouldn't... but could it not have waited for a couple more freaking hours???


Oh well, on the bright side I got some clear on a couple other panels, and got a few coats of red on a new skateboard deck. Just need to keep an eye on the next break in the weather.
