The Return to Painting

Well, after a long hiatus i am back at the painting table. I have several work stations in my Studio, (not the least of which is just the floor), and many interested parties for one reason or another have wanted to see how i work. Well the process may not be as glamorous as all those avant garde images we have of Pollock flinging paint in a large worn paint splattered warehouse, or some converted New Jersey sausage factory, but it's my little bit of chaos ...
new images are on the way-

My NEW Blog!:

Ok all,, if you are reading this then you might be looking for my latest ANIMATIONs. if so, go to

it's the NEW THING,

it seems i need to organize my disparate personalities into a less 'hunt and peck middle mouse scroll' interface.
So for now all my Animation ramblings and efforts will be posted in this new shiny Blog and my Art/Decay will stay at "Downtime". Someday i will master the world of the interweb and harness it's vastness for my purposes. Until then i will stumble along creating multiple Me's.

The Hunger Artist pt.1

Well it's FINALLY up. after all these years i got off my lazy ^#*&$)#&_*!@#^ and posted the 1st part of my Short Film, The Hunger Artist. It took 4yrs, on and off, as i still had to earn money. It won many awards and did pretty well over all out there in the Festival Circuit world. I did the whole thing cradle to grave in my warehouse, but i had great help from Frank Petzold, Shawn Brennan, and Blaise Smith (who did the fantastic sound track).

more to come...

Tucker and the Tarsier

Tucker with her forest friends, another Digital Painting week, still trying to get good at this type of painting.

the Crab-o-saurus

second attempt at Photoshop, it's strange how versatile the computer is and yet it's so unwieldy

Harper at Night

my FIRST attempt at painting in Photoshop. Harper at night with a mysterious "friend". So this is the start of trying something new. I've been putting off Computer Painting for years, but now, it's time. so i'm diving in and giving it a go for as long as i can stand it.
wish me luck.
