Characters that started as a live art piece.

It is always a blast to get on stage and do a piece of art REALLY FAST with a large group of undulating viewers behind you roaring with voices and dance moves. This piece was painted at a fashion show music event. At the event I was only working with black and white and the piece only took around 2 hours. It was a really fun experiment of creating depth and having foreground flat decorative elements.  I liked the piece, and the session in the studio I painted it like a coloring book full of expressive color. It is now in the private collection of Scott Cocking. It is also being printed on clothing through Four Letters. So fun!
