Don’t get yourself stuck inside the box.




I started this piece about two years ago and completely forgot about it. Yesterday while cleaning my room I saw it and decided to finish it. This is my first painting ever and although it may not be too impressive, it means a lot. It brings a series of unfortunate events which occurred a few years ago; memories that will always live in me.

I thought that by using bright colors I could remember the good parts.

But we can’t hide the truth.

This is Pierre. A friend I’ve known since 7th grade.

Not long ago we found each other through the wonders of the internet. Somehow we became good online buddies, but have never reunited since 8th grade. It has been about 10 years, WHOA!

Anyway, this is an illustration he asked me to do, which I think he meant to print on his skateboard. I don’t know.

He sends me “hellos” with funny smoke signals.

Art: From original photo to illustration using Illustrator and Photoshop. Bling!

Inspired by the worst movie I have ever seen in my life: The Ruins.

Maybe the veins should have been green.

Resources: anatomy books.

Self given homework: try to memorize all the muscles in your face.

Also, if I could have any superpower it would be to make my skin invisible. This does no good for humanity, but it’d be pretty awesome. Like that girl character from The Venture Brothers.

Double Damn it!

My dog. Toy Pooddle.

He loves people, hates dogs.

Maybe he thinks he is a human.

In the end, we end up becoming a different shade of the same color.

Original: 18×24 – Prismacolor Markers and drawing paper. Fun!

Retouched in Photoshop.
