Charles Bukowski Stencil by Zombie-Pacman
Charles Bukowski Stencil
A 2 layer stencil of Charles Bukowski, painted onto pages of his book, "Post Office" (good wee book, give it a read). Fairly easy apart from the lines on the jacket, came out exactly as I planned.
The Lonely Spaceman by Zombie-Pacman
The Lonely Spaceman
3 layers, not including the background. It's a huge A1 canvas, and the stencil is about 4 inches tall. The purple bled like a pig, so I had to fix it with a Sharpie as the lines were to thin to re-stencil. Apart from the bleed, it came out exactly as I planned.
Jean-Luc Godard by Zombie-Pacman
Jean-Luc Godard
2 layer stencil.

This painting has sat around my house unfinished for the past 2 years, glaring at me every time I passed it. I abandoned it after the grey layer, when I realised I was going to have to repeat the same picture over and over again only smaller each time, which I just didn't fancy doing at all (And ended up not being able to do anyways).

But I decided to finish it today, if only to get it out of my sight. And I realised halfway through that my original print-out had the colours the wrong way round, and I'd have to re-stencil some of the grey, so there are more than a few mistakes. Grrrrrrr. I may get around to fixing it in another few years...I don't think I've ever created a piece of artwork out of this much spite before.

On a plus note, it marked the point in my stencilling when I started doing interesting background/foreground stuff, so it's got that going for it. But yeah, it can go away now.

Poison Ivy by Zombie-Pacman
Poison Ivy
Nice, simple 4 layer; I took the face from a screen-grab of the cartoon and invented everything else myself. Thanks to the cartoon's art-style, it was mostly straight lines, which was handy. Nice and clean as well, quite chuffed with this one. Might put two wee spots of white on her eyes to make them look a bit more alive.
Aleister Crowley by Zombie-Pacman
Aleister Crowley
2 layer stencil of self-proclaimed "wickedest man in the world", Aleister Crowley, a controversial figure even to this day. Wee bit of bleed here and there, but nothing I can't fix if I can be bothered. I found an image online of him that had been made into a very rough-around-the-edges stencil; I loaded it into Photoshop and cleaned the image up before turning it back into a stencil myself.

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.
