I'm not offended, it a good painting. OH, Its kind of like seeing an African-American Santa Claus. Jesus wasn't the only person to be crucified. I see that paint that you use, still works the same on wood as in paper

Sven-

if it ruffles feathers then it does...i don't make it a secret that novelty art is my thing and i am sure as "Hell" not going to apologize for it...being a father of a 3 year old little girl DRIVES me to do images like this as sort of a negative ion voodoo protective forbidden shield zone thing if that makes any bizarro sense ...to me it's a preventative measure that adresses it's futile nature and expresses my frustration with being unable to control the mortality of the ones i love and hate... traditional catholic art dwelled on ideas imagery and concepts MUCH darker than this image...way heavier on the death thing going as far as postmortem discoloration of skin rolling eyes broken teeth and rotten appendages...human sacrifice has been my thing for a while now ... just look at the last dozen or so images i have done in the tiki theme and otherwise...humanity's animal root...life and not death...those that are living NOW - ESPECIALLY WOMEN and CHILDREN...i think many people take their lives for granted from day to day...i won't do it again...every second has potential that should be realized and so i try to take things lightly as i can and encourage others to live likewise...anyone whose spent time with me knows what i'm saying

today my little girl ripped her fingernail a bit too short and for an hour and a half she was inconsolable...she cried herself to sleep and she stopped napping a year ago! it's things like this that make me realize that it's healthy to let my painting take a back seat to spending time paying close attention to her while i can...everything ends and i can accept that...but it doesn't mean that i can't maximize the quality of my family's time as long as it lasts...i love my life!

anyone whose feathers are ruffled by this is spending too much time on the internet and is merely in search of drama in another's invested time so that they can avoid dealing with the real drama in their own life...i like this painting...


man i can't wait to see the fountain and bejeweled saint skeletons...i love the hidden and plainly visible architecture of the human life form and how it's been beautified by many cultures to signify the importance of each passing moment in life and beyond death...bring it on!

dead serious!
Miles

Reminds me of one of my favorite politically un-correct jokes.

Why did the girls love Jesus.... cause he was hung like this. ( Motion of putting your arms out like the outstretched arms.)

Dude-
I am cracking up, nice one. Your stuff looks tight on wood!
That peice would be great in our bathroom next to your "you can poo" peice...
I wish you luck on your upcoming Roq La Rue show, and the Shooting gallery gig.

Thanks Miles, took an hour to find everything on the first piece, but only a few seconds on the second. I love them both. Keep'em coming.
