Weekend Art Work

It was another busy weekend creating art.  Such is the life of an extreme freelancer.  It's all good.  Art makes me happy.
Untitled, 2011, 16" x 20", acrylic on canvas.  I was bad, I know I was supposed to leave those acrylics alone.  But they are so damn seductive.  I did a simple - but not easy - color blocking work.  I'm really loving blue.
Detritus Robot, 16" x 20", cut paper.  The idea for this work came about as I was cleaning up the yard.  Again.  The litter in the neighborhood keeps getting worse and worse.  Beer bottles, wine bottles, fast food wrappers, cigarette wrappers everwhere!  I wished I had a robot to clean up the mess.  And here she is.  I think she'd make a great vinyl toy.
I wish I were a video artist.  I'd make a video of her.  I can see her movements, her head kind of moves back and forth like a metronome.  She makes a ticking noise when she moves.  I started working on a graphic novel about the adventures of this robot happily cleaning up the ghetto.  I know, I'm a bit crazy.  And it's not like I don't have two million other projects to work on.  And, yes, I'm an insomniac.  Want more crazy characters?  Here's a fun flickr group devoted to this topic (link).
