That 80's Painting

I thought I would include something from this century. I like this painting but my wife won't hang it because she says it's too 80's looking. It was actually done around 2001 (I think). This one was fun because I used sheetrock mud on a piece of plywood. I drew into the surface of the mud and let it dry with lots of texture then I just painted what came out at me. I like it...even if it does look 80's.

Pirate's Chest Volume 3

On this one, I referenced one of my muscle magazines. (I was into working out then...sue me) I also branched out and did the lettering myself. (Stretch, Marty, stretch!) The back cover was a bonus. Woo-hoo!

Pirate's Chest Volume 2

Told you it was awful.

Pirate's Chest Volume 1

I had a friend who taught in the English Department and this was his project. I did 3 covers in all during the early 80's. The first 2 are pretty awful. The third one is better.


This had to have been done during the mid to late 80's. I think I had this matted at one time. Tried to sell a bunch of these at a comic book convention one time. What a big waste of time that was.
