DomCon was great. Let me just start there. I know a lot of people have probably already cruised by the site since then and wondered when the hell I’m updating. But I’ve been juggling quite a few things, including sending out the post DomCon LA 2017 press release and following up with reporters. Next week I need to start touching base with podcasters and radio hosts for interviews with the Sanctuary LAX staff and make a pilgrimage down to the dungeon to say hi and get up to date on what’s going on.
Up top there is a commission from the convention. The stickers and greeting cards were not popular this year, but I suspect it’s time to retire old stock or bring them to new venues. However, a lot of original art did move. Which is important given that I’ve been trying to find new homes for older artwork.
Meanwhile, I’ve been getting back into the swing of things. We got a bad case of convention flu, starting with a sore throat, and ending with a nagging cough that just dogs you for weeks. But as I reorganize put things back together, I went back to work on this piece. I’ve got two paintings left to finish. This one above, and the high heel hot rod painting that was up for charity.
Our flaming Dominatrix here started at Bar Sinister as a live painting exercise. Quick learning experience, I don’t do live paintings very quickly. While I knocked out a lot and kept working late on after I got home, the glow in the dark piece still hasn’t been finished.
Some more got done at Threshold’s My Kinky Valentine, and then it has been sitting in the living room, staring back at Sherry as she watches television. Last week, it went back up on the easel and I’ve been filling in quite a bit. Mistakes have been fixed, details have been added, and new stuff is getting added as I go along.
Some have asked about color. The piece was intended to be knocked out in one night, so it was a do what I know and do best kind of project. The next painting I do will most likely be in color. And I do like working with the glow in the dark paint. At first, the painting may look little dirty, hokey and spartan. Brush strokes are obvious. The glow in the dark media is a dust magnet, especially given it has to go over a white surface. When the lights go out, that all changes. That rough punk look amplifies into a raw and energetic effect that will catch you by surprise if you’re not ready.
The devil girl painting is not going on Etsy, unless you want to pay a lot of money for shipping. I’m not sure where she’s going at the moment. So if you want to buy her, meet me at a show in the future.
Meanwhile, if we met at DomCon LA this year, howdy!!! I doubt you’ll be coming back for regular updates. However, I do update on social media. Uncensored stuff goes here, but I usually tweet site updates and post cool stuff on Instagram. So you can find me at:
