Comic Strip Paintings

I’m not your typical cartoonist. I , in the past, have been known to paint on occasions. The last painting I did, before 2008, took me 3 years to paint….or 3 days. I only painted on it for three days but there was a year and a half between each day. This year I decided to do something a little different. I call it My “Year of Paint 2008”. I am going to attempt to paint an average of one painting a week for the whole year of 2008. So Far so Good. I am around 15 and I think we’ve had 14 weeks this year.

As I was painting I decided on a new subject to paint. COMIC STRIPS! Not just any comic strips but the ones that I write and draw. I am picking out some of me favorites and painting them on 1×3 foot canvases in acrylic paint. I’ve been having loads of fun doing it and enjoying the mess out of it. The first one I did was actually on a 1×2 foot canvas and used my SPACE REDNECKS title.


The first panel someone is saying, “Hey look, a sign of intelligent life!”. In the second panel the SPACE REDNECKS are in the asteroid space bar surrounded by some ‘Grey’ aliens and Bubba is saying, “Ding Dang it! We’re in a Grey Bar!”

This is probably one of me favorite comic strips that I have ever done. I actually gave it to my art teacher from college a couple of weeks ago. I have done six COMIC STRIP PAINTINGS and actually gave him the option to choose which one he wanted and this was it. I am glad to see it go to a good home. He is retiring at the end of this semester and it was his retirement gift.

I am going to the Cotton District Arts Festival before too long with a booth and setting up to sell my paintings. Hopefully they do well.

Until next time have a bubbatastic time.
