" Body Shop" a oil from 05


I think I stole the original title from an X-Men comic from way back. I'm posting this because I've been really busy working on my inks; which one of them I'll post tomorrow, hopefully. Well, I figure this painting has been collecting dust and I may as well show it. I was into oil for a couple of years and I'm not really sure if I'm done with it, but if I use it again, it's on my own accord. I really hate all this romantic bullshit on oil anyway. Everybody wants to be a fuckin' painter these days. I appreciate what you guys are doing on this blog and I realize most of it isn't oil. And that's what I love about it. That's just my opinion- whatever.

Really dig the head shaped boxes with cubes of organs fitting into them. I haven't messed with oils in a very long time myself but it is something I miss. I was steeped in the whole romantic notion of oils from artschool which is part of what made me rebel against it in the first place, I suppose. But it does have a certain tactile presence and glowing sheen that I've found very difficult to replicate in any other medium.
