Throne of Red Blood
2x9 inch, Acrylic on Canvas.
I had recently watched Akira Kurasawa's Throne of Blood, which is a remake of Shakespeare's MacBeth. Spoiler alert, the main character dies at the end. But the death scene was so iconic, I just felt the need to take a shot at it. I did another one in shades of grey. Both were done in one sitting.

Out of the Trench
2x9 inch, Acrylic on Canvas.
I have a morbid curiosity with the First World War. I’ve also had nightmares about it when I was kid. I don’t know if that’s because that war was what the old people back then described as hell, or if I was there in a past life or what. Who knows, maybe I saw a graphic documentary on in I was a little too young for one.
Battlefield 1 is one of my favorite games ever, Storm of Steel by Ernst Younger is probably my favorite book, One by Metallica is the greatest and best song in the world (Although Johnny Got His Gun is god awful), and 1917 may be the most perfect example of cinematography.
Anyway, I was working on a new technique with acrylic paints and I like how this turned out.
Hey Baby, You got girlfriend in Hell?
9x12 Acryllic on Canvas
Me: *Stumbles into haunted castle while searching for Dracula, accidentally awakens demon nun*
Demon: YOU WILL BE SUBJECTED TO EVERY LEVEL OF NEW PAIN!
Me: So did it hurt?
Demon: IT WILL HURT!
Me: No! Did IT hurt?
Demon: *visually confused* What?
Me: *lights cigarette* When you fell from heaven.
Demon: *blushing* Well.... *plays with dirt with its foot, looking at ground* I mean, kinda...
Me: it’s not your fault.
Me: It’s NOT your fault.
Demon: huh? *tears up a bit* what?
Me: it’s not YOUR fault.
Demon: *wailing, throws face into its hands sobbing* IT HURT SO FUCKING MUCH!!!
Me: *opens arms* bring it in, buddy.
10 minutes later I’m beating demon guts.
When I blow my load it starts screaming. This is when I reveal I’ve only drank holy water for the last week, and the demon starts melting.
A portal opens and it’s dragged back to hell. It’s screams: CURSE YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN’S CHILDREN!!!!!! CAAAALLLLL MEEEEEEE!!!!!! Four moths later I’m lonely, bored, and “text my ex” drunk.
I pull out the Ouija board and summon the demon.
The first thing is says chills my bones.... “I’m pregnant.”
