Brush Off is tomorrow and I'm pretty stoked about my ideas for this year. Keeping it thick and colourful with inspirational themes. Really looking forward to seeing what kind of new styles the other Artist bring to the... and on the table. Work surfaces often become works of Art themselves. Here is a couple close up pics of some timed practice paintings from this year. I have a whole bunch of them taking precious space. So they'll be up for display on my website and available after the show. If you would still like to get tickets, here is the link for doing so. Would Love to see lots of familiar faces!!!!
Such a great time painting a lot of the Iglesias Crew at this year's Shock Stock! Had a few hiccups with the airbrush, but nothing that couldn't be worked out and I had a very talented up and coming make up Artist, Sam Boehler, working along side. We kept it moving! Def gotta be up on your game for smooth running of such a finicky tool. Huge thanks to Tammy Heisel for the extra light hook up in that dark stairwell we were pushed into for painting too.
Wish I would have captured more snaps, but was so over stimulated by the massive amount of cool things to look at. I even found a crystal skull!!!!! Been to Mexico many of times, always kept my eye open for one..... nothing! Anyways, so much I could try and describe about some of the awesomeness that is Shock Stock, but it truly is a "you have to be there" type of vibe.
Massive shouts to everyone that makes such a specialized event go down. Especially the Grim Brothers Hope to return again next year with some custom airbrushed zombie attire!
Spring is in the air and summer on the way! Keeping busy with getting ready for another great festival season. Starting with .....Shock Stock!!!!! An expo dedicated to all things entertainingly macabre. It will be my first time attending and I'm really looking forward to hanging out there with Iglesias Crew, all painted up in grey scale with a bunch of other zombies to promote the latest show "Night of the Living Dead Live"!!!! Lots of awesome vendors with really cool merch, including my original poster Art for the show. Stacked line up of famous horror film Artists too! Check out the website for more info. Be sure to grab your tickets for Night of The Living Dead, while they're still available.
Coming up right afterwards.... 3rd annual Children's Museum fundraising competition "The Brush Off". I'm happy to return for round 3 and have lots of great ideas in mind for working that canvas with speedy precision! Hoping to see lots of familiar faces in support of this great event that benefits so many youths by inspiring minds threw creative learning.
There's not many opportunities to see such high caliber Artists working together in such a unique environment with amazing deals on the original works being created that evening. Here is a few snaps taken last year by my better half, Kim Doerr. Photo on the left is practice speed painting I did this year. Going thick this time
Studio wise, a lot of works on the go that I'm really excited to finally exhibit. Def some of my most ambitious pieces yet. They've been taking forever and long over-due! Thanks for staying tuned.
