One Shady Character

Here's A painting I did of a "Shady Character" for the "Shady Characters" Art Show which opens tomorrow, Friday, July 28th, at the 'Live with Animals' Gallery (210 Kent Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211)

If you're in the New York Area, be sure to check it out!

The show is curated by my pal Jared Deal.

It kinda looks like that old tree that lightening struck by our house in Mt Joy. Was that your model?

What program are you using for the vector version?
Flash?, Illustrator?
It's so full of fun! I love it!
All the best for the show.

I use Flash to do all the vector color comps. I love flash, it's my go to program for everything!

Dad, No, it's not that tree, that tree wasn't as "shady" as this one! This one looks like it wants to chop down a couple humans for christmas...
