My 221a studio setup

so here's what my painting/screen printing studio looks like... not much of a paint studio because I share the painting wall with Jonathan which is on the other side of the cubicle (left of camera). Originally my station was suppose to be more of a silkscreening setup but I haven't had time to work on any prints as of yet... hopefully soon. here's a break down:

1. Desk
2. My mundane series prints
3. My silk screen exposing station/work table
4. Silkscreen Inks/cleaners and canvas frames
5. Jonathan's painting station
6. Jonathan's skateboard
7. My box of brushes and misc junk
8. My backpack and oil/acrylics paint toolbox
9. Brian and Michelle's Industrial design cubicle
10. awesome studio brick wall.

still life painting

My attempt at still life before I start my series of paintings. This was about 9-10 hours. the WIP shot in the upper image is about 6hrs in. It's been a while since i worked with oils and I'm totally lovin' it. ditching my acylics for now :)

technically not official art but more like fanpost-inspired art ... for the latest game i've been working on: Scribblenauts.
this piece was made based off an AWESOME post by some guy who played a test version of the game...

I had played all the big titles at E3. Private showings of God of War III, Heavy Rain, Alan Wake. But at 4:00 on Thursday, I was wandering around the show floor, wondering what else I had to see. I saw a small little booth for "Scribblenauts!" in the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment section. I mean, who goes to that booth? But I remember hearing about it on GAF, and so I decided to check it out.

Best game of E3? Without a fucking doubt. Anyone who says otherwise did not play Scribblenauts. Best game of all time? Jesus Christ, I don't know, maybe. It's a game that challenges your IMAGINATION. No other game has ever done that.

So listen to this story. I was in the early levels; I didn't quite have an idea of how ridiculously in-depth the database was. I was summoning things like ladders, glasses of water, rayguns, what have you. But I reached a level with zombie robots, and the zombie robots kept killing me. Rayguns didn't work, a torch didn't work, a pickaxe didn't work. In my frustration, I wrote in "Time Machine". And one popped up. What the fuck? A smile dawned on my face. I hopped in, and the option was given to me to either travel to the past or the future. I chose past. When I hopped out, there were fucking dinosaurs walking around. I clicked one, and realized I could RIDE THEM. So I hopped on a fucking DINOSAUR, traveled back to the present, and stomped the shit out of robot zombies. Did you just read that sentence? Did you really? I FUCKING TRAVELED THROUGH TIME AND JUMPED ON A DINOSAUR AND USED IT TO KILL MOTHERFUCKING ROBOT ZOMBIES. This game is unbelievable. Impossible. There's nothing you can't do.

Holy fucking shit.
