huladollsquidgirl

I had so much fun doing the Rocketgirl painting that I was anxious to do another piece like it. Then I received a very exciting invitation to show some work at a Cocoa Village cafe during their bi-annual Gallery Walk. Unfortunately, I didn't have anything that would fit the retro islands theme. The deadline was pretty quick, but I thought I could try to pull off couple of 6x6 pieces. I'm glad I did because I'm very happy with these fun little paintings.

If you ever offer prints of these, I will take one of each. These are clearly painted with awesome. And paint, I imagine.

Raven Girl said...

Thanks Brian! Yes I have plans for prints. I'll let you know.

Awesome. I talked you up in my latest blog post about awesome artists. You do fantastic work.

Raven Girl said...

Oh wow, thank you! What's your blog?

My blog is called The Hellsquids International Input Junkie Experience. It's your basic pop culture noodling, albeit from my occasionally sideways way of looking at things. :)
