Hanzo the Razor

Hanzo the Razor (1972 - 1974)
An awesome trilogy of samurai flicks about a cop with a big dick and a penchant for sexually interrogating women. In this scene, Hanzo is telling off his boss.  I used charcoal, compressed charcoal/graphite (I don't know which) and conte. This was super easy and was finished really quickly.

Child of Rage

Child of Rage: a Story of Abuse (1990)
This is one of my favorite documentaries because the little girl talks about wanting to kill her foster family with knives, torturing her brother, masturbating, hurting pets and killing baby birds. I used charcoal, conte and colored pencils.

Since I'm doing abstract paintings and photoshop layers, why not combine 1 of each? The name is to keep track of what went into the final image: Cut paper 10, Decalcomania 4, Marbleizing 12, Spray 3 and Suminagashi 5.

Marbleizing 8&9

When I marbleized spray paint this winter, I tried photoshop layers on that, but it didn't work as well as with decalcomania. This is the best one that I made from that series.

Decalcomania Layers 1&2

I was doing decalcomania with tempera on plastic for a while in the summer of abstraction and spray. Layering my first 2 decalcomanias in photoshop turned out pretty nice.
