Hearts


Dimensions: 16" x 20"
Medium: Acrylic on Panel

Artist Statement:  "Colonel Buckley has been retired, with full pension, after serving more than four human years in active duty (equivalent to 24 years in dog year). The rumor has it, however, he has appealed several times to HQs asking to return to service.  Considering his age, and the fact that one eye was lost during his last combat mission, he will never have a chance to go back."

IMO (In Flight Missile Operator)


Dimensions: 16" x 20" x 1.5"
Medium:  Acrylic on Wood Palette

Artist Statement: "High Command selected the brightest kids from the Animal Boy Scouts for this special mission - navigating into a target.  Things have advanced since Chi Chi and Clyde begin testing this tactic months ago.

The Operator carefully monitors the launch process and manually inspects every part of the rocket before liftoff.

Candidates are all also numbered and there is no mistake or confusion as to who is next. 

It was suggested that the pilot try to eject prior to impact.  However, no information about casualty rates is available at this time."

Artist Statement: Mr. Fluffybanks couldn't believe that his girlfriend of 3 weeks (about 5 months in dog years) left him for a Navy officer.  His only consolation was looking at the bottom of beer cans and liquor bottels from the inside.  Unfortunately, on this day the human Air force decided to send a lone fighter to bomb a key strategic site.

Show at La Luz de Jesus

A little late but, I participated in a group show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery recently.  I was lucky to have sold all of my pieces at the show!  Thanks very much for your support.  The show closes April 1st.

Show overview:

La Luz De Jesus Gallery proudly rebrands our annual juried group exhibition, LALUZAPALOOZA. This gigantic, no-theme show features works from some of the freshest and most relevant artists working today. Over 9,000 submissions from commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, animators and working gallery artists had to be sorted-through, and we've finally narrowed it down to 125 or so artists. The official piece count is awaiting verification, but you can bet that it will be another (tastefully) jam-packed, salon-style exhibition. There are some familiar names from our ever-growing roster of feature artists, but an overwhelming percentage of the work comes from a brand new batch of undiscovered, emerging talent.

From Wikipedia:  The Feldgendarmerie (English: Field Gendarmarie ) were the uniformed military police units of the armies from 1810 until the conclusion of World War II. Their duties are apprehending deserters, anti-partisan and border control.

During World War II, the gorgets continued to be used by German military field police, as ID and emblems of authority. German police gorgets of this period typically were flat metal crescents with ornamental designs that were suspended by a chain worn around the neck.
