Maximum Carnage


The comic: not so good.

The video game: tremendous. TREMENDOUS.

This painting: hopefully somewhere in between. Fingers crossed it skews toward the latter.

This is totally not my style. I’m a bit of a control freak, and even though the Muppet portraits wouldn’t suggest that, there is a method to the madness in which everything is where it should be. With this? It was literally splashing dollops of paint across the canvas and letting the pieces fall where there did. The closest I’ve come to such a carefree approach has been with the various splash paintings: Martin Brodeur, Emmitt Smith, The Ninja Turtles, the Power Rangers.
