OUT THERE!! / Color Collage / 1986

Here are two collages that have more detail than the previous post.

This image always makes me think of being controlled from afar, and, not able to do anything about it!

Great image, I even did an oil painting of this one!

COLLAGED MONSTERS / Computer Colored / 1985-97

I collaged a big series of images like these in 1985, then, in 1997 I colored them on my computer. Pretty strange stuff!

WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE - 1952 Comic Covers / Collage and Colored Pencil / 1979

These pieces are hanging right here, I created them to inspire me and are probably my finest work. In 1978 I decided to get into comics, and, the reason was because of the image of the top cover with it's big rubber monster by Basil Wolverton. I saw the image in an early Overstreet and I knew what I wanted to do, since I love monsters so much!

This is the comic WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE #2. They are 18" x 24" in size, each piece of the image is a cut-out, rendered with colored pencil, then glued down on board. An extremely time consuming procedure so I only did a total of eight pieces.

This one is WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE #3, another mind boggling image by Basil. Basil was one of the few comic artists that was able to work from home and mail in the art to the publisher. Also, he was paid extra for layout and lettering!!

B+W ODDS + ENDS / Pen + Ink / 1982-88

These are a mixture of pen + ink pieces from the past...

JUNGLE JUJU / Colored Pencil on Black Illo Board / 1992-3

I really like doing 'jungle juju' pieces. Again, these had a 3 minute time limit. There's no time to think, just to do, and, it gives them a distinguished look!

ZOMBIE SCULPTURES / Wood + Sculpting Medium / 2003-5

Okay, now, presenting... Some cool zombie dudes!


Here are 2 pieces I did using collaged images, copied on xerox, then, drawn on with either ink of black colored pencil. Both were colored by computer.

I had been doing some simple collage pieces when the WEIRDO Magazine 'ugly art' contest came up in 1985, so, I decided to get more complicated, and, it paid off. Pal Brian Riedel's excellent piece is also in that issue, WEIRDO #15!

Teen-age Mutant is another piece similiar to the WEIRDO one in complexity.
