Stranger Danger

Ok, so I finished this new painting the other day for the Plan 9 Tattoo 'once upon a time' art show.  It was by far the biggest endeavor to date in regards to actually painting but more so with the prep of it. What I mean is Stretch and David had the idea to do a painting as if its laid out for a tattoo.  So I had to first draw the sketch then had to stencil the designs onto the hands of my good friend Jim:

Then I had to stencil on a full throat piece onto Stretch.  This was a little nerve racking to do, but I feel a learned a huge amount by this... And yes that is a Joe Capobianco chest piece and backpiece!





Once I got everything stenciled on and photographed, I now had to start the painting.  This is what I came up with.  Its 25 x 21.5 and is watercolor:


Thanks for looking!
