I finished my exams, so Ive been doing some painting for myself recently! Sorry for the poor quality images...

I havent finished painting this yet, Im planning to add a border and work over the collage in the speech bubble... Also its quite annoying that the cardboard I chose to paint on has fold lines in it! I really love the whale though, im so pleased with how it turned out Smiley



...the skull says Grindhouse underneath it, cos Id just watched Deathproof [love that film]



Im not really sure if I like this! It was an experiment with painting some 60s style designs. Milk and Honey was the name of some dub song I was listening to at the time Smiley

You really have a knack for painting characters, I think. I'm actually really partial to the Bambi, but then, I do love deer.  Grin

Thanks... I actually just painted painted them from my mind. I thought about it before I painted and then sketched what I wanted out on the surfaces.

I did use a picture of Disneys Bambi for reference on the deer though.

 Cheesy Deathproof was Scheisse!

However, your paintings and collages are AWESOME.

I LOVE the whale one. I could totally see someone paying money for that. It's mad crazy brilliant.
