He’s really more teal than blue, but the name amuses me anyway. This little guy looks like Poseidon’s evil minion in some sort of wacky Greek Myth claymation. He’s all tentacles down below, and spiraling silver curls up top, with tentacles on his left arm and silver filigree on the right.
Blue Dude of the Deeps, 3.5″ tall vinyl Color Blank figure customized with acrylic paint and Sharpie marker, $99 with free shipping. Note that this is a collectible, not a toy, and the paint will not stand up to much abuse.
Above, you can see more detail on his curly hair and filigreed arm, as well as the coppery sheen of light off the black Sharpie. Below, you can see the rest of his head and the curling tentacle that takes up most of his back.
He’s been finished and signed, but I need to get some polyvarnish to finish him off before he’s really ready to ship.

Oranges and reds are some of the hardest colors to reproduce really well in Photoshop, alas. This piece has a great, intense bright orange that lightens up to golden-yellow in one corner, and holds a secret little demon-face in the other that scowls at you from out of the flame, or perhaps is made from it. The texture is enhanced with a bit of brown in the low spots, and the little face got a tiny bit of extra love to pull it out of the background using Copic markers.

Above, you can see the scowly little demon-face glaring up at you from the canvas. Below, I stepped back and got a photo of it with some of the stuff on my desk, including pens, pencils, and a Jack in the Box Christmas antenna ball, because I am a very special sort of artist.

The stars are clearly right, because we’ve arrived at the answer! For #42 I tried another new thing this week, or really a very old thing in a new way. I broke out my acrylic paints for the background, and then drew tentacles on top with Sharpie oil paint marker. Since it’s on a gallery-wrapped canvas, the image slips around the edges, as you can see where the tentacles sneak off the left edge there.

Above you can see the way the tentacles shine with a different sort of gloss than the background, at least when exposed to the sun and an Instagram filter.

This piece was painted years ago with my friend Wolf, an artist I’ve since lost touch with. We spent a couple of lazy afternoons with the painting laid out flat on the floor and acrylic paints all around us, finding agreement on the palette, one of us working in one place while the other worked on another, switching whenever it suited us. Our styles meshed well, though we only did the one piece together.
Despite the morbid subject matter, seeing it always reminds me of the possibility that happens when two artists work together to create something new to both.
