Functional Art

Posted in Artwork, Copyright with tags , , , , , , , on May 14, 2016 by makingbelieve

My latest project was painting a dresser. I found these two interesting end tables on the side of the road, took them home, sanded and stripped the old paint off. Tightened drawers and table tops then preceded to paint my art on them. Added some funky drawer handles I found on the internet and voila.. functional art.

But a picture is worth a thousand words (excuse the thumb in some pictures, I never claimed to be a photographer)…

…except my dog
… and the mouse who lives under the stairs
…and that bird that keeps flying into my window.
But just in case…

I came up with this illustration on a recent business trip to Cincinnati. I stayed at the Netherland Plaza hotel. Which was opened in 1931 and is one of the world’s finest examples of Art Deco style. It is just filled with inspiration from the classic architecture to the two-story ceiling murals.

.. and did I mention it is haunted by the Lady in Green.

Just a digital sketch of an idea I had. What if historical figures from the past all went to a water park. I think I must have been watching Bill and Teds excellent adventure when I came up with this idea.

My homage to the Bruce Timm version of Harley Quinn. Don’t know why they keep trying to re invent her, Bruce’s character designs (for the whole Batman: The Animated Series) are flawless. This one is also for my daughter, a big Batman and Harley Quinn fan.
