Finally an update!  Sorry, been..."busy."  Here's a piece I completed for a show I agreed to be in dedicated to the one and only Kristen Stewart.  It was an odd request but I was really excited (and honored) to be asked to contribute.  The premise was simple: a piece on Kristen Stewart.  It could have any tone or concept I wanted.  I could be admiring and adoring, or cynical and snippy.  I decided for something kooky and spooky, where the meaning could be sort of hazy.  I see Kristen Stewart as this kind of dark, non-Hollywood type of girl who was thrust under the microscope because of a hugely popular tween series.  She's uncomfortable with her fame, and comes off with an attitude or "edge."  I neither see this as a good or bad thing, and wanted a way to convey all this while calling back to the very franchise that has made her seem ungrateful or uninterested.  Hope you enjoy, tell me what you take from the imagery.

Oh!  And the show is on the 5th of April, all information is in the flyer.  The piece is framed and will be on sale there.  If you're in the LA area you should definitely check it out for some weird and fun KStew art.  And tell me how it is.  :)

You ever have one of those pieces that is so hideous, done on well earned materials, that you just have to paint over it?  Yea I got me one of those.  So I stained the hell out of it and slapped a few friends on top of it.  No planing really, just went for it.  It was very liberating to just sort of do whatever I wanted.  If you recognize yourself then congrats to you.  And to me :)
