The Last Ride of Captain America

This is not a portrait of the superhero of the same name, but the name of Peter Fonda’s character in the wild movie “Easy Rider”. When I first saw this movie, it rattled my, at the time, right wing brain. I thought it was entertaining but full of hippy propaganda. But the older I got,…

The Naked Merciless Force of General Ursus

Of all the Planet of the Ape movies, Beneath The Planet of the Apes is my favorite. It is totally off the charts! The best character is the gorilla General Ursus, played by the amazing James Gregory. His best scene is a speech he gives about the evils of humans, accumulating with the amazing line,…

Artwork by Micah Moad

Badassery is many things and varies from person to person. It’s what makes your insides explode sending adrenaline through your body. It can be a mind blowing action movie with explosions, fights, and epic car chases. It’s the way you feel when seeing the lines of a muscle car pull up next to you in traffic.

Come to Studio 3108 on June 30, 2016. I am the featured artist of a group show, and I will be showing artwork from the last year.

Special thanks to Micah Moad and Charles Davis

Lament of the Lizard King

Everyone’s favorite version of Jim Morrison is the young and wild poet from the first Doors album. Not me. I like the older Morrison. The bearded, bloated, drunk blues singer from the LA Woman album. That is the Jim Morrison I am painting. He is looking far off with weary eyes. Is he in deep…

The Rise of the Italian Stallion

Rocky is one of the greatest boxing movies ever made! It was created by Sylvester Stallone and made him a superstar! I tried to capture the violence and chaos that happens in a boxing match, as well as emphasizing the destruction done to Rocky’s face from his opponent. His eyes are swollen shut, his jaw…
