Gif Piece: Hallucination 3

This is Hallucination 3, a GIF I must have missed when I was uploading my earlier Hallucinations series. I'm in the process of meshing it with the physical - a new painting. Below are pics and a video of how it's progressing. I'll write in more details about the philosophy behind this one sometime when it's not 2 AM, but basically I'm confronting the momentary time aspect that the digital affords and binding it to a painting.

Weirdness of the Now

So I'm trying to take things in a more Dada/Surrealist direction right now because I've been getting sloppy with my AbEx work. Here are some exercises (my fav in terms of result is Sensations of Bob). The last pic is a painting that I spent most of the day on called Trouble on Ganymede. Wowee!

Kinkade Mutilation 2 - The Continuing Saga

Just a quick update on the painting. Here's a photo of it so far; I'm not sure if I'm done:

...and an animation of the process:

Here is Sentinel, a non-game I whipped up this evening:

It's really just a toy to play with. Nothing further than what you see.

I'm hoping to post more analog work soon, so keep watching this space!

Moon Garden!

Thanks for taking a look!
The Space key resets the location of all plants present.
Escape closes the game.
When you "pop" a plant, a new one reappears randomly elsewhere. If you so choose, you can "pop" what plants you dislike, therefore selectively "breeding" the garden.

Have fun, and as always I'm up for comments. Anything, please.

EDIT: One other thing: if you click the gif above, hit Escape while in Firefox and it freezes on one image. You can keep refreshing and freezing to see all of the frames. A fun time waster.

Seminar work - Transfer and new Composition

I'm working on transferring Kinkade Mutilation 2 to an acrylic painting. The first step is to print it out really huge on a sheet of paper and then attach it to Masonite. Here's the poster held over the board for sizing purposes. Behind you can see two paintings featured elsewhere on the blog, as well as Pixels, a work I produced for my first abstract painting class.

Just as a side note, I call it "2" because I've tried this method of composition before.

Here's the first new academic painting (almost wrote paining) of the semester, Self in Culture. Presumptuous, eh? I repainted this sucker entirely seven times.

I have a new video game finished, so stay tuned!
