Micheal Jackson - Thriller (Dance Video)
Uploaded by fpmolina

What Halloween would be complete without a little 'Thriller'. So Classic! I suppose I should be posting art for Halloween and especially for this blog, but I couldn't resist. The beginning sequence always used to scare me as a child, now the as an adult the real Michael Jackson scares me. Honestly look at the comparison:

That's my Halloween scare for y'all. Boo!

I created this for my fiance Sarah. This is her brother Raymond who passed away in July at a relatively young age. I suppose this could be posted on for "Repair" because death is something that obviously cannot be repaired. Certain emotions and feelings relating to the death of a loved one can never be repaired, but in general time seems to heal, and a certain degree of closure and acceptance comes to fruition. Sarah was very close to him and he in turn loved her very much. He lived a very adventurous life traveling the world and living in such locations as Miami, San Francisco, New York, Puerto Rico, and Brazil. She and I both admired him being able to move about so freely seeing what life has to offer. We'll miss him and look forward to seeing him again ;)

On the aesthetic side, I know this is a little different from the style generally seen from me here, but again this blog for me is about exploring and experimenting. I created this in Photoshop as a speed painting in about two hours, which may not necessarily classify it as a speed painting, but ya know. I've never been good at painting in Photoshop so I figure it's now or never! I'll be back to more cartoons next week ;)

I'd like to say this isn't me as I'm going to meet someone for an appointment, but this week's theme would need to be "Liar". It isn't though, it's "Late", and I have been known to be late for things a time or two.
I thought a lot about Looney Tunes and Calvin and Hobbes as I created this. Both are such huge inspirations to me, as I'm sure they may be to many artists. Not only the artistry of both, but how they were able to portray humor in such simple fashions. I think if you asked me as a child who I would like to be when I grow up, I'd say Bugs Bunny. Actually I think that still holds true. I do know whenever I need my spirits lifted, I just watch The Rabbit of Seville, laugh like a maniac and feel completely better.

No Strings Attached?

Well normally I'm not one to be a political commentator, and I'm probably going to hell for this one, but it was my immediate reaction to this week's theme of "Strings" for I know John McCain has a handicap in his arm due to a war injury (and then some), but I can't help but think when I see him talk that he moves like a string puppet. Who's controlling the strings is another issue, that I'm sure everyone has their own answer to.
Interpret it as you will.
I don't think John McCain is a bad guy by any means, but I have no plan in voting for him. His VP pick certainly helped make my decision concrete. Thanks John and good luck next month! ;)

Welcome to My World

This is dedicated to an awesome artist and friend, Pascal Campion. His work and drive has inspired many people including me, and I'm honored to know him. Recently he and his wife had their first child, a little girl named Lily. In his work it's common to see bright colors, birds, elephants, and a myriad of other forest creatures all enjoying life. Check out his work here
