Fans of the deceased painter Basquiat may dig this style.

Done as a partner project with a fellow painter, I drew it with a distortion of proportion for effect in my own style, and he finished it by painting it in his own 'Basquiat'-style .

As big horror and TCM fans , we chose to present Leatherface in his 'dinner' climax scene mask from the original Tobe Hooper film, as we have both always found this one more disturbing than even his well known skin-stitch mask.

It stands 6foot 8in. by 4foot 3in.

It is for sale  for $500. I am in Los Angeles and can meet in person with anyone interested in seeing it there.

I live in the U.S.A. where people have a God-given right to speak their mind so I would never censor you, but just a suggestion-

Try to make friends with some artists and spend some time watching them work - if they'll allow you- so you can see the amount of hard work that goes into creating something real. Or attend some galleries and research the financial art world. Then maybe you'll actually be able to speak on the subject and offer constructive criticism or ideas without sounding ignorant.

I wasn't taking anything away from the work. I think it's cool as hell. I'm out of work, so I really can't even offer $5. I wasn't criticizing at all.

$500 may be kinda steep if you're an unknown. I'm not big on my TCM paintings, so I can't make that call.

I really don't think anyone was criticizing the work. Like I said it looks cool to me.

Kaveman1969-  I apologize for not being more clear. I wasn't addressing you so I'm sorry if I offended you, and thanks for the compliment, it's appreciated.

 

thecarpenter666-   'Spack' huh....  I'm sorry you're wasting so much energy you could otherwise be using to be productive and making a living with your big boy degree. You'll probably be ecstatic I'm feeding your angst so you'll waste some more time name calling and insulting an artist just trying to sell their wares.

 

For the record as well,I have  a 4 year degree in Illustration and Sculpture, but I didn't need to stroke myself by pointing it out because it's irrelevant, I just make art and sell it- it really doesn't give my opinion any more merit. Working and producing work does.

In addition, someone with any professional education at a great University like Royal might know a thing or two about costs of materials. They might say a piece this large cost more than $50 before hours worked is even factored.

Anyway, I'll let you have the last word here, so thump your chest and throw some more insults around, I'm going to get back to work being creative instead of wasting any more time online where you are king.

Art is always someones vision and someone elses appreciation. thecarpenter666 is a good guy, but it looks like you are too. You guys should just take a breath. You keep doing what youre good at jack, sometimes humor gets misunderstood and builds from there and many artists, while appreciating criticism, take umbrage with flippant remarks, which of course, is allowed after the time and self invested in work. Im not making excuses for either of you. This IS a discussion blog. Good luck with your work. There are people here who like it just as Im sure there are some who might not. Doesnt mean EVERYONE doesnt wish the artist well, lol.

HELLFIGHTERS SMILEY

They say ART is the representation of one's soul upon a canvas what ever that canvas maybe,me personally i,m kind of a Munch man myself.

              If you wish to sell your art then prepare some sort of criticism it's only natural,but don,t whatever you do not attack someone just because they don,t like it.THIS NOT THAT MEDIUM.

PEACE OUT
