Edgar Allan Poe Stencil, 2 layers by Zombie-Pacman
Edgar Allan Poe Stencil, 2 layers
Edgar Allan Poe, 2 layers, on pages from "The Masque of the Red Death". Not bad. Not great, but not bad either. Had to age the pages myself; the other paintings I've done this way all had aged pages, and these were taken from a brand new school textbook. Then I realised the story is only 12 pages long (double-sided, so technically only 6), so I had to scan them in and print a few copies out. Didn't plan things too well...although I'd have been buggered if I had chosen "The Raven", that's even fewer pages.
Stencil of Stephen King, 2 layers by Zombie-Pacman
Stencil of Stephen King, 2 layers
Painted on pages from The Shining (a badly-worn, 2nd hand copy). I had Photoshopped a picture of Stephen King and added a hand holding keys to room 217 (not 237 like the film, 217 like the book; I even added a used a few pages with the correct room number on them). Chuffed with this one, no mistakes, clean as a whistle. I even like the fade.
The Loneliest Space Invader REDUX by Zombie-Pacman
The Loneliest Space Invader REDUX
My latest stencil; another take on my original "Loneliest Space Invader" painting, this was created as a companion piece for the similar "Lonely Lego Spaceman" piece I did last year. 3 layers, A0 size (about 4 times the size of the original), with a nice background. Took me long enough to get around to it.
New ZX Spectrum Game Cassette Cover by Zombie-Pacman
New ZX Spectrum Game Cassette Cover
Yup, designed another cassette cover for a brand new ZX Spectrum game called "WW1 Fighting Heroes (and some crazy aliens)". It's a fun wee game where you choose to take control of a WW1 tank and shoot aliens, or a WW1 biplane and shoot aliens. Quite pleased with the way it came out, I struggled with the composition for a while, with the tank/plane coming out of the screen or into the screen, or at different angles, before I settled on this.
Leonard Cohen Stencil, 2 Layers by Zombie-Pacman
Leonard Cohen Stencil, 2 Layers
Latest stencil, and another commission for my aunt, this time bigger and 2 layers. Nice and clean, apart from two miniscule wee specs of bleed. And again, I'm chuffed with the fade; both layers are fading this time, first time I've tried that (I think). Bottom layer fades from light blue to dark blue, top layer fades from white to light blue.
Been so busy with my stencils recently that I've neglected my comic and everything else art-wise...can't say I'm not focused! Got another 4 stencils or so before I stop, then I can continue with the comic, and perhaps the Gainax vs Capcom stuff.

No worries, you're doing God's work man. :)

You're better than most - probably because you put serious time into your art.
(But being "better than average" here on dA, and racking up :+fav:s or page views will never be a reliable indicator of much.)
I bet you're the last one who can see how much more confident the work is your gallery is getting, then-to-now. Keep pushing on. Keep being so courageous in your composition and execution techniques...!

Thanks for the words, man. Today's been a weird one, between being awarded a Daily Deviation and selling a painting (the Hunter S Thompson stencil), I've been trying (and failing) to keep a straight face. Right now, I'm looking at projects/canvases I've lined up and planning the time I devote to them; it's all I can do. If I could only value my work properly, I don't know, I might be able to make a living out of it. That's the dream, anyway.

Holy bovine, I hadn't even seen the DD. That almost makes it sound as if I knew what -I- was talking about.
But enough about basking in the glow of your success...

I really doubt anyone "value[s] their work properly" as of a single celestial moment. It's a learned behavior - no matter what those critical voices say (that sound a lot like, um, this person or that one). When I have a paycheck coming in again I'll be looking real hard at your prints - and it's a good era for selling things online or in person, so I hope it'll be easier to get to the point of "making a living out of it" for you young turks than it ever would've been for your elders.

Cheers for the words, mate. The DD has boosted morale quite a bit, I'm trying to get enough work together to hold an exhibition somewhere. "Unfortunately", people keep buying my stencils (at a cheap price, I may add); a friend commented that I'm possibly the only artist in existence to complain about people buying their work.

But I see selling them now as a short-term goal; money in my pocket, and a short-lived morale boost...organising an exhibition and bumping the prices up, getting my name out there and watching commissions roll in as friends of the buyers see my work on living room walls and are referred to me, and the potential for going self-employed. THAT'S long-term. Just hopefully not TOO long-term.
