I have been on a watercolor kick since getting my new set. Among the many things that I have painted I did a small series of mushrooms.

Fan Art in Watercolor
Original Watercolor Painting
Dimensions: 14.5" x 12.5"
I am doing a series of watercolor paintings in honor of Katsuhiro Otomo's legendary manga & movie cult classic, Akira. The paintings in this series will depict the main characters and their interaction with Tetsuo during his final transforms. The moments are all quick snippets so brief on the screen that you're almost not entirely sure of what you saw. These paintings help freeze some beautiful cells from this Japanese Masterpiece.
Prints of both are available in 3 different sizes in my Etsy Store.
All prints are printed on Aquarelle 100% Rag 240gsm Textured Pure White Paper.
There are at least 4 more coming. These are the first 2. Follow this blog to keep up with the newest releases.

"GraffiTV" (pictured below) is a play on the very first image that I chose to screen print (Pictured left). I remember the trials and tribulations of teaching myself how to screen print and putting this television set image on ANY surface I could (see TV Gallery) mid way down. Although this is not a screen print, it is the first of a series of different of televisions that will be part of a series of prints that will include different variations of this general image of a basic old school tube tv set.

All 3 inks are florescent, so, this poster will look best under a blacklight.
The poster looks awesome as is, but, under the blacklight you will see this poster transform. It would appear as if the ink becomes florescent lights! The colors will POP! right off of the paper.
Full view of the Show Edition.
This poster was sold at the show and was also SOLD OUT.
CLOSE UP of the Show Edition.
Natural Variant Edition.
I also did a few test prints. 3 were given directly to the band.
Posters are still available on my etsy page:
