I don't paint. Other than walls anyway.

But, today one of my twitter friends saw that I was going to be painting this afternoon (for work) and said "Oooh paint me something."  I didn't have a chance to explain before he DMed me and asked for a commissioned piece. Soooo I couldn't turn him down. After all, he IS one of my best twitter friends. Wink I would only do it under one condition: that he didn't pay for it. He's been a good friend from afar for a while now and has done a lot for me.

Well ... guys ... his twitter name is @nerdboner.  Yes. NERDBONER. Because he geeks out over comics and all things nerdy. Which is actually why I started following him in the first place. He seemed like a cool guy  and is.

SO  what better than a comic book inspired painting for him?  Not to mention, I could limit the colors that way and basically draw it out and do a paint-by-numbers sort of thing.

I decided to do a triptych because I looove triptychs.  And instead of attempting cheese by doing characters, I used typography and went sort of the Lichtenstein route (but in no way am I claiming to be half that awesome). 

Anyway ... hope he likes it! I'm mailing it on Tuesday.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

I think I'm going to figure out a way to incorporate this look into my ceramics. I did a tattoo thing a while back, but honestly, I can't freehand that. This I can. And it's in the same vein.
