Here's a little commission made for a longtime fan who lives in Silver Spring, Maryland. She discovered my Splotch Monster work a while back, when I exhibited at HypnoCoffee, in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Sadly, HypnoCoffee is no more, but my Splotch Monsters were not forgotten by this fine individual who had purchased a piece from that little show several years ago. She wanted the piece in mostly purple and red and on a bike (if possible). I enjoy a new challenge, as I used to draw lots of BMX bikes as a young boy, but find them difficult to draw as an adult. Needless to say, I had my doubts about how it would turn out, but it turns out it's not only a fan favorite, but a personal fave!
On a side note, after being quite occupied with setting up my part of the Animals Altered exhibit, currently going on at the Takoma Park Community Center, which I'll continue to post about here at the blog, I promise to get back to posting those daily Splotch Monsters beginning tomorrow. Until then, bike on!
